Positive Outlook

I worked at Randolph College full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

+Pay is the best in the region for academia
+It isn't sunshine and rainbows quite yet, but the work environment is much better than before with four years of enrollment growth (despite being in the middle of a recession and small liberal arts colleges failing left and right)
+Everyone absolutely loves the new administration that seems very responsive to students, faculty, and staff
+Small size gives plenty of opportunities to cut through red-tape
+Part of tuition exchange program for dependents

Cons

+Pay is far below national average (but cost of living is ridiculously cheap, so that isn't a deal breaker)
+No tuition reimbursement for graduate coursework
+Effectiveness of VPs vary by department
+Still haven't quite left the "survival-mode" mentality, so management still expects an extraordinary amount of effort without additional compensation

Advice to Management

+Be willing to ax VPs from the previous administration. Some are highly regarded by their subordinates, but many are not.
+Consider more ethnic diversity in mid-management/upper-management (there's no hint of racism on campus...but why are all the directors and VPs white, especially with such a diverse student body?)
