    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of New Mexico full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    As a full-time lecturer I had the opportunity to teach without research requirements and minimal issues with the politics of tenure-track. I felt supported my departement and enjoyed working with departments across campus. I really enjoyed the student population and campus. I didn't find anything negative about UNM that wasn't present on most college campuses. You can supplement salary with summer and interim teaching.

    Cons

    There is not much rom for growth in salary in this position. Department and university service are expected. Academic politics.
