    I worked at Saint Peter's University full-time

    Pros

    SPU is a pleasant place to work for. Hours are typically 9-5 with weekends off plus a lot of holidays and winter break days off as well.

    Cons

    Salary was a little low, however it is tough to get a fantastic salary working entry level in higher education. Giving salary/compensation a 4 star due to the 100% tuition waiver for employees, dependents, and 50% remission for spouse as well.

    Pros

    The students are great. Good schedule

    Cons

    No room for growth, depending on the department you are seeking....politics will drive your tenureship success. Limited faculty project resources.
