I have been working at Gustavus Adolphus College full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Flexible/mobile work environment
-Great feeling of community
-Campus-wide pride for the greater good
-Benefits, although having recently been slashed a bit, are still quite acceptable for the industry
-Many opportunities to participate in campus discussions outside of the individual department
-Students are friendly, caring and accepting of others, as are staff

Cons

-Salaries, in general, are a bit low, but if you are working in education for the money, you are in the wrong industry
-Sometimes upper management/officials of the college can seem difficult to reach
-There is a lot of focus on "bottom lines" and not enough focus on ideas that cannot be fiscally measured

Advice to Management

Continue to listen openly to all professors/administrators/support staff and engage them in open conversations to help them (and the college) thrive.
