    I worked at William & Mary full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very smart students, top notch faculty. Williamsburg is a very nice town, touristy but well maintained.

    Cons

    The students are the epitome of the entitlement culture. They expect you to treat them as if they already know everything. Faculty are their peers, referred to by their first name. Students and faculty have a strong inclination toward taking offense, quick to judge, and are superior manipulators.

    Advice to Management

    Administration is invisible and aloof.

    I worked at William & Mary full-time

    Pros

    Passionate student body who care A LOT about their interests. Most of the time, they are stern but fair. Lots of prestige bestowed upon the school due to its age.

    Cons

    The moments when the students are not fair, when they have an axe to grind and won't settle until someone in the administration has paid the price.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Stable environment considering it's the oldest university in the country. Really appreciated everyone's open and honest attitude.

    I worked at William & Mary full-time

    Pros

    Williamsburg is such a beautiful town and W&M is a great employer. One of the best places I worked for.

    Cons

    as usual, when you are a postdoc, you don't get a lot of guidance on how to advance your career. My supervisor was great but I wish postdocs get some serious guidance on their next move. This is general, nothing to do with W&M
