      Pros

      If you love teaching and working with fascinating colleagues—and you enjoy building curriculum and researching in your field, then the professoriate may be for you. Also, the benefits can’t be beat.

      Cons

      Little chance for growth or advancement. Teaching staff are overworked and tasked with growing list of administrative duties, which are unpaid. Also wages are stagnant and there is growing unrest in the non tenure instructorship that seems on the verge of taking the whole institution down. Also, upper admin sense this unrest and are planning early exits (Watkins is only the most prominent... but there are others).
