    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Wesleyan University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The History Department was very flexible in allowing me to teach the classes I wanted at times that fit my schedule and provided great support in helping me navigate new systems. Salary is great compared to some alternative VAPs.

    Cons

    None, really. Just the general problem of hiring VAPs instead of authorizing new tenure lines.
