Challenging educational institution
Associate Professor of English (Current Employee) – Portales, NM – February 5, 2016
My work at the university is in constant flux, but always includes an extended day of teaching, advising, administrative meetings, and research. I have learned to be flexible and move quickly from one type of activity to another. Our various committees and responsibilities require that we frequently "change channels" from informal to structured, from minor decision-making to major policy endorsement. Academic settings such as mine tend to feature engaging and interesting colleagues. However, there is often an overload of responsibilities which causes conflict and turnover.
Engaging colleagues; changing schedules.
Poor salaries, work overloads.
