I worked at Western Connecticut State University full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Higher ed is a great industry. A campus setting teeming with faculty and students is a rewarding place to work. State benefits (health, etc.) are really good.

Cons

WCSU underpays its staff as compared to other Connecticut public higher colleges and universities. Administrative faculty are in a union which flattens pay increases despite performance.

Leadership tends to be weak.

Advice to Management

The emphasis on hiring and strengthening teaching faculty is warranted, but the administrative faculty needs some help, too.

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work with a great group of people who will more than likely become some of your best friends. You're given the autonomy to create projects and work together with your coworkers to help prospective students.

    Cons

    There are a lot of people who work in the office so sometimes you'll be working there for minimal hours.
