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

Associate Professor, Postsecondary / Higher Education in Fargo:
"Teaching University vs. Research University."
I went to Michigan State, a research university. I knew that wasn't really what I wanted to do ... I wanted to teach. I didn't know places like this really existed, otherwise, I might have made a straight line here rather than the long and winding road through high school and a masters to a doctorate at the same time as raising 2 young kids and working full time.

Associate Professor, Postsecondary / Higher Education in Bethlehem:
"Fancy campus, underdeveloped behind the scenes."
If you want to become an administrator, become an administrator. If you don't want to become an administrator, don't take on too many duties that amount to administrative work. It's slippery after tenure.

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?
