This is great advice! I just got tenure at a 4-4 place and this is pretty much what I would tell anyone starting out. I'd add: join your union if you have one and get involved at least to some extent. I've witnessed firsthand how a strong union can make a real difference in one's working conditions. Being involved has been one of the more fulfilling aspects of my working life.
