    I have been working at Duquesne University full-time

    Pros

    Depends on your department/school, but in general faculty and administration are very supportive of faculty, staff, and students. Employees care deeply for students and for the well-being of staff and faculty, on a personal level (not necessarily through their policies -- see below) .

    Cons

    They are fighting unionization of adjunct faculty. I don't know how adjunct contracts are.

    Administration consults with faculty, but faculty senate does not have a real voting power.
