    Pros

    They care about their employees and offer a lot of perks. Conference travel, research funds, moving expenses, spousal hiring. They work to retain talent.

    Cons

    The remote location makes it difficult for people to commit to living there, especially for young people looking to meet a partner, or people with partners who want to be employed.

    I have been working at Middlebury College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Retirement and tuition assistance benefits are good. Some departments have balanced work home life expectations. Other departments pile on work as staff leave.

    Cons

    Finance departments are significantly under staffed. Poor communications, definite air of superiority among management in some areas and retribution against staff.

    Advice to Management

    Analyse staffing in departments under Finance. Look at AVP level and staff satisfaction under the AVP's.

    I worked at Middlebury College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a lovely campus in a lovely area. The students are smart, diverse, and energetic, and the employees are friendly and engaging. There was a strong sense of teamwork and camaraderie in my division, which contained some truly inspirational and competent people.

    Cons

    Pay was on the low-ish end of the spectrum (granted, the cost of living is quite low too, especially when compared to big USA cities) and the winters are serious business!
