Library Office Assistant II (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – January 9, 2015
It seemed like a great job from the outside before being hired, but once I started, it turned out to be a dead end job with diminishing benefits and no advancement. One of the supervisors I worked with pitted employees against each other, and would prop you up for a promotion, then made sure you didn't get the promotion just as a show of power.
This doesn't go for all of the university, just this one part. Other colleagues had great success in their respective departments, its a shame it doesn't happen for all other departments.

Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Princeton, NJ – June 28, 2014
Everything depends on how dedicated you are to teaching and what your relationship is with your colleagues. I doubt that my description of what language and literature teachers do at any university is going to be helpful to nonspecialists and public at large. Furthermore, I think that the information you are asking for should be of no concern to anyone.
