Low Stress, Low Work Environment

Typical small, Liberal Arts college, with all the problems of a small Liberal Arts college -- dwindling enrollment, exorbitant tuition, etc.
The workplace culture and management will vary depending on the department in which you work. My department is characterized by a laid back atmosphere, very little work to do, and management who fear direct communication with their subordinates. Take a government agency; add to it large dollop of self-importance, and you get the idea.If you want a slow-paced, work environment, Whitman may be just the place for you.
Beautiful campus, well maintained by an excellent team of grounds keepers, gardeners. Also, I quite like the students: they are smart, well-groomed and courteous.
