Pros

The students are delightful and the faculty are world-class. Alumni love this place for a reason, or 100 reasons. Teaching, discoveries, summits, research, enhancement are all normal events.

Cons

Difficult to earn a promotion, individuals with a strong interest in career progression must be very determined or find a great mentor and seek the next job on his/her own. Can be discouraging to see some coworkers focused on the retirement end-game rather than the opportunity to support our students. This seems trivial until you have to deal with it: commuting to campus is not easy, particularly if you drive and park here.
