    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of paid holidays, decent environment.

    Cons

    Not much growth opportunities. Difficult to get a full time position. Leadership is so/so. Managers are okay but beyond that it becomes less about people and students and more about reach and pushing beyond the limits to the detriment of staff. Lots of doing jobs of multiple positions.
