    I worked at Mount Holyoke College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for a mission-driven organization has a lot of upsides - there's always a sense of purpose and meaning in your work. The organizational culture was also largely positive - the leadership were good people, and did their best to ensure a healthy work environment.

    Cons

    Our department was chronically underresourced while I was there. Of course, this is typical of almost anywhere with a finite budget, but it could be frustrating at times to always be told to somehow do more with less - less people, fewer tools, etc.

    Pros

    The PLUMs (Peer-Led Undergraduate Mentorship) program is really helpful. Student mentors develop their teaching skills and pass their passion and knowledge to the underclass students.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything off the top of my head.
