    I have been working at Bates College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great faculty, small class sizes, personal connection with peers and professors. Good dining hall.Lots of opportunities to learn and try new things, many resources.

    Cons

    Remote location in Lewiston Maine, the endowment of the college is small compared to similar schools. The gym is old and the machines do not always work.

    Advice to Management

    Find better ways to address behavioral problems on campus. If you expect students to behave as adults you must treat them that way.
