Where there's smoke...
there's fire. If you have heard negative things about the school it is because there is a basis for them. Faculty morale is at an all time low. There definitely is an inner circle of faculty members who always gets what they want. There is hardly any planning time; every free moment is taken up with meetings. You definitely need to keep your guard up and even then you just never know. On top of all this, students are disrespectful and unappreciative.
