    Pros

    Ok Pay, great benefits, for doing minimal work

    Cons

    Everyone out for themselves to doing bare minimal; gossip mongering regardless of leadership/grunt and department; moral seems low; I was harrassed/intimidated by members of my department/faculty on site; student conduct, particularly from internationals a little off - ex. a potential student volunteer's/peer's relative followed us to nearby coffee shop and directed iphone camera at us in a conversation for 10 minutes until I called to stop.

    Advice to Management

    Stop gossip (unprofessional when even admin/security/etc. participates). Faculty should not be treated like royalty at the expense of other workers.
