    I have been working at Augustana College (Illinois) full-time

    Pros

    Great colleagues and students, beautiful campus, shared governance and lots of opportunities for independent work and professional growth

    Cons

    Illinois state budget issues have led to strain on the financials of the institution. Overall, the college is dealing well with it but it's tight.

    I worked at Augustana College (Illinois) full-time

    Pros

    The colleagues are generally nice and supportive.

    Cons

    I negotiated a pay raise with the admin after being offered a better paying position. After a few back and forth, I obtained a modest increase which I accepted. A few weeks later, I learned that my pay increase corresponded to the cost-of-living increase given to everyone! The bad faith of the admin is quite spectacular. Also, during the hiring process, they do emphasize the generous retirement contribution, without ever saying that you have to stay there FOUR years to be fully vested. A cheap and mean institution.
