    Pros

    The department gave me full and autonomous control over the courses that I taught. They have invested in new and modern buildings with great equipment to aid teaching. The supporting staff was great and friendly and very helpful.

    Cons

    Parking was a nightmare to faculty staff and students alike. My advice is go early if you are teaching a class.

    I have been working at Montclair State full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The school is in a dynamic and exciting location

    Cons

    The school atmosphere is pretty relaxing, which can also be considered a negative aspect as tenured faculty members are super lazy. Colleagues in my department are alright but they are really old. Well, being old does not mean a bad thing as long as they are motivated to learn and improve teaching skills. Students complain a lot as old faculty members do not even update course materials and cannot even use power point etc.

    Advice to Management

    Faculty members who do not publish papers should not receive internal research grant and travel support.
