    I was able to devote time, while aiding others in their work, to complete homework and study for classes while working.

    I didn't have much in the forms of supervision and training.

    Proper training and teaching of what my tasks where supposed to be would have been convenient.

    I worked at Western New England University full-time

    Pros

    You can experience teaching undergraduate classes while you usually can't teach during your program in other schools.

    Cons

    A lot! Unorganized and rude people can easily promote! The professors knowledge level is very low. The Industrial engineering department has the worst chair ever!

    Pros

    Nice campus. Mostly good students.

    Admin from chair up couldn't care less about individual faculty. It's sad.

    Advice to Management

    Walk around campus. Introduce yourself to faculty. Get off your high horse.

    I have been working at Western New England University full-time

    Pros

    WNEU has a strong culture with faculty, staff, and students working well together and being very supportive. Administration has many new talented leaders.

    Cons

    There is a strong sense of entitlement in some colleges that brings higher paid disciplines down in order to elevate lower paid disciplines (in terms of market pay). Administration has major talent gaps - especially at the top and with the Board of Regents - that have kept the University from advancing like it should and has resulted in a budget deficit which is expected to last three years in its most optimistic prediction.
