    Pros

    I taught in the Liberal Arts department as a young parent, and everyone was always welcoming of my kids and understanding of my situation as a parent.

    Cons

    I didn’t get paid a ton, but I wasn’t a professor. I think it was pretty standard bad pay for all university non-tenured positions.

    Flexible but pay isn’t great

    Pros

    Very relaxed, fun and flexible work environment. Great PTO accrual and lots of paid holidays worked into the schedule, including Christmas break (1 week) and the week of spring break.

    Cons

    The University typically does not provide cost of living increases. There is no outlined career advancement ladder for the majority of positions. This results in a lot of of turnover and movement of staff from department to department when seeking an increase in their salary or job title. Communication throughout campus is very poor. There doesn’t seem to be a direction or roadmap for where the institution is headed. Morale is low as a result of decreased enrollment and high turnover amungst staff.

    Faculty Morale Now Terrible

    Pros

    We have many good colleagues.

    Cons

    Pres. Neuhold-Ravikumar is hostile toward faculty. There has been a cloud/threat over the faculty for the last two years that faculty must be reduced by terminations, but absolutely no leadership or guidance provided. She has also cut the Provost out of the loop, as the Provost is supportive of faculty and tenure. The threat continues every year, and meanwhile, the university flounders. She is pursuing an online ED D degree to try to gain some degree of academic credibility, but that is laughable to any academic. She is an empty suit, who is tone-deaf, and trying to make the culture Woke/corporate.
