    Pros

    Decent salary, time off, close to home, good pension plan, enjoy all that the city offers, very rewarding, and never boring

    Cons

    Very high stress levels, administration expects way more than what one can do in a reasonable time, students can be difficult

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your teachers are professionals, and in most cases, don't need to be micromanaged. Also, be more reasonable in your due dates and time frames.
