    I worked at Ferrum College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation, paid time off and sick time

    Cons

    management staff are very "set in ways" and do not like new ideas. staff members are not knowledgeable about their job they're just told what to do and do not know why they're doing it.

    I worked at Ferrum College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent community, surprising in close-knit team relationships; it's truly a place that is trying very hard and very often succeeding. Those looking for a quick turn at a job and not really investing themselves will be disappointed, but those willing to join a community and truly get back what you put in for the long haul will not be disappointed.

    Cons

    Remote location - you really can't sugar coat it, it is in the middle of nowhere. Cell service non-existent, even now, for many cell networks. If you don't live nearby you could have a disjointed existence between Roanoke and Ferrum - which is great for some, but those with young families may find that hard.

    Advice to Management

    Up salaries or be very flexible in schedules to help those commuting deal with the remoteness and impact on families
