    I worked at University of Toledo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my time at The University of Toledo. As a visiting professor, I knew there were things going on that I did not know about, and that suited me just fine.

    Cons

    Although I was not privy to most of the office politics and hostilities between faculty and administration, I could feel the tension in the air. Some of my colleagues told me they wish they had accepted jobs elsewhere. I received an email from a university psychiatrist offering to talk to me my first week on the job about morale at the school. I did notice that management didn't seem to know what it was doing. I was told I would be informed when my job was going to be advertised, but I never was. During the vetting of candidates, my chair asked why I didn't apply for the job, and I told her nobody told me. She told me there was a possibility for part-time or adjunct work, and she would let me know within a month. Of course, she never did.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together!

    Good environment to establish a career in academia. New facilities. Excellent IT support.
