    I have been working at Edinboro University full-time

    Pros

    It is a very small department, and people in the department are nice. The campus is rural and in a picturesque setting.

    Cons

    Being unionized means there is a constant low-level antagonism.
    Power is valued over truth--we want to win rather than be really accurate about how things are going.
    There are no standards for admissions, so there is a constant struggle to teach graduate materials to people who should not have been allowed to graduate from high-school.
    Probably true everywhere: Millenials have a sense of entitlement, and the University does not want to [annoy] them off by by demanding they meet a standard.

    Advice to Management

    Bust the union.
    It takes guts to demand high levels of performance for high grades--but it might be the only way to survive.
