I worked at The Principia full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Most departments have few people, so you get to be a great general manager, a jack of all trades and a master of none so to speak. This experience stacks up and exceeds many corporate positions early on in one's career, as many of many counterparts had limited scope of responsibility, but a lot of it.

Cons

Outside of being a teacher or professor, there was a limited path to career advancement, and most people work on the staff because other family members do, or so they can be close to their children.

Advice to Management

Just continue to remember that the main mission is the education of children, and everything else stems from that mission.
