Most political workplace ever encountered.
Pros: great students, eager to learn.
Cons: see above
Norwich has a political culture of character assassination, bullying and "gotcha." Many, not all, faculty are more concerned about promotion and tenure than teaching. Concern for students is looked upon as a detriment to one's career. The best part of the job is the students, many of them the first of their families to attend college. The worst part is the hide-bound academic culture that favors research and "publish or perish" above all else.
