    I have been working at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth full-time

    Pros

    The benefits are great including the time off but that's about the extent of the pros.

    Cons

    Management is hired based on who they know not what they know causing most departments to be lacking in knowledgeable bosses which leads to many issues. The lack of communication on campus is shocking.
