    Pros

    -Great colleagues -Campus is beautiful -Students are great -Small community/family atmosphere

    Cons

    -Pay is lower than other institutions in the area, but in turn they offer a work/life balance. However, due to insufficient staffing, the stress of working so understaffed undermines work/life balance measures. -There's no pathway to promotion or merit based raises in my department, only 2% COLA raises, so this makes retention and recruiting very difficult. -All the admin and HR type offices are really understaffed. The folks who work there seem nice but it takes ages to get important things taken care of.
