    I worked at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - good salary with respect to the job market
    - lots of support tools and resources for teaching
    - ok medical benefits

    Cons

    - ideology of students as "clients" and professors as "customer service providers" seriously affect the stand and respect for faculty
    - few minority faculty make it throught he system; hiring numbers are up but tenure and retention are low
    -intense quarter system,...plus some times different course sections (with different course number) are assigned to the same classroom, so the faculty ends up teaching more sections than originally planned
