    I have been working at Sacred Heart University for more than a year

    Pros

    I can do what I want in the classroom. Nobody is checking on me or has any idea what I'm doing. We could be finger painting for all anybody knows. We don't, though. The job gets done. Courses get taught loosely according to catalog descriptions.

    Cons

    Crap pay, no benefits, complete isolation.

    I worked at Sacred Heart University

    Pros

    reputation, nice overall learning ambience (physically)

    Cons

    the pay stinks for all the amount of work invested; a good percentage of students are whiners and are unprepared for college level work, and know how to work the system to their advantage instead of just concentrating on doing their work
