I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very bright students, great physical facilities and computers, supportive colleagues, fairly good technical support, freedom to develop course content, encouragement toward personal and professional growth

Cons

Capricious departmental leadership, over emphasis on student evaluations, some stifling of dissent, hypocritical "support" for teaching but true evaluation based on scholarship,

Advice to Management

Be more careful to ensure that department chairs receive training on how to administer an academic department, based more on consensus than on top-down fiat.

    Very flexible with weekly hours. My supervisors and coworkers are great to work with and I feel like my job is very fulfilling.

    Sometimes the amount of papers you have to grade piles up, but you can opt out of grading papers if you want to. Honestly there are very few downsides.
