    I have been working at Iowa State University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked in a small department with a generally cohesive/ supportive atmosphere (though I hear this is not always the case in larger departments); Decent pay given the cost of living in Ames, IA; Far less pretentious than many other universities

    Cons

    Pretty culturally homogenous; Definitely on the politically "red" side of the spectrum (some may consider this a pro)

    Advice to Management

    Reduce administrative waste and pass on the savings to under-supported departments that are doing great work with embarassingly little support
