What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Associate Professor, Postsecondary / Higher Education in Farmville:
"Who You Work With Is As Important As What You Do."
In higher education, the colleagues you hire will probably get tenure and you'll be stuck with them for a long time. So when picking a department, don't just look at the academic program. Ask if you share the values and interests of the people you would be working with -- especially the younger faculty. Are they people you'd want to spend a lot of time with long term?
