I have been working at Hampshire College full-time

Pros

The students are the real reason to want to work at Hampshire. They are (mostly) motivated learners, that contribute to a creative environment. Hampshire also has decent benefits, and is an idyllic setting (visually).

Cons

A young tuition driven school, that does not have a lot of money to update facilities. It sometimes feels very disorganized here, and offices lack a connection to each other. A lot of trickle down.

    I have been working at Hampshire College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Forward thinking community, solid benefits, energized community. Life in the area is great if you like the countryside/college town vibe. There have been lots of opportunities to be creative and explore and I've received a lot of trust from management.

    Cons

    school is sometimes slow to define goals, as a large organization there are sometimes poor lines of communication.

    Advice to Management

    move faster, take more risks, the school should lead by bold example
