      Promising, But Disappointing Experience

      Pros

      + Beautiful scenery, the campus is a wonderful place to take a stroll during lunch or from meeting to meeting + Pay is on par for those used to working in higher education or nonprofit settings + There are plenty of opportunities to gain experience by teaching a course, leading a program or project

      Cons

      - The hours that exempt staff members are expected to work are plainly exploitative. It is normal for staff to work 10-12 hour days multiple times per week. When I spoke to my supervisor about comp time after working long hours on numerous days, she informed me that she had worked 21 straight days and reminded me that I was exempt. I'm not sure why working long hours is so pervasive, but it is a recipe for burnout. - An atmosphere of toxicity that could be described as gossipy, racist, and elitist, all while parading around in a righteous attitude. - An excessive amount of initiatives being taken on, one after the other. My supervisor seemed focused on applying for grants and front loading work into that part and as soon as the program started running, her focus would shift into the next program without much thought being invested into the maintenance and quality control of previous programs. I'm not quite sure what was the point of this since it caused plenty of friction within workers and departments.
