I have been working at Whitman College full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good benefits for the area, very good to employees with families, fun people to work with.

Cons

Pay is less than what one would make in a larger city. Progress can move quite slowly as this is a fiscally conservative institution (not necessarily a bad thing!).

Advice to Management

Open up communication. Stop holding it all in.

    Pros

    This is a respected nationally ranked college, but...

    Cons

    I had a conference interview with Whitman College for a tenure track position in one of their social science departments. It was horrible.

    I worked at Whitman College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was in an office admin position at Whitman, so my experience is with staff relations and not faculty, with whom I did not have a whole lot of professional contact. My department did not have too much in the way of office politics, bickering, or infighting. People tended to stay for a long time.

    Cons

    One definitely overheard the usual stories of professors sleeping with their students, and endured a certain amount of meetings over budgets and the other sort of bureaucratic roadblocks that one expects in higher education administration. Staff and faculty did not seem to interact much at all when I was there, but that may have changed.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage inter-departmental communication. Isolation is bad!
