    I worked at Champlain College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people at a passionate and progressive institution. Incredibly generous full-time benefits package (significant PTO, tuition remission, 403(b), and much more). And it's in an amazing location. Never got bored working here--every day brought a new challenge or opportunity.

    Cons

    Senior Management can often be vague with sharing decisions, departments sometimes stay in their lanes too much (which makes collaboration hard at times), and it's a small organization--so expect to wear a lot of hats.

    I have been working at Champlain College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Champlain has consistently stayed focused on what our students need to thrive in their careers and their lives. This has traditionally connected staff, faculty and administrators as a community and provided a profound purpose for each of us.

    Financial realities bounded by the current reality of higher ed costs and student fiscal challenges can impact our offering.
