    Great place to work as a student

    ITEC PEER TUTOR (Current Employee)
    Lawrenceville, GA

    ProsAs a student it can be tough to get a job. GGC has many different jobs available for students and takes great care in utilizing as much of its student population as possible.

    ConsI have not experienced any real cons except that there are no full-time positions for students. So without full-time status there are no health benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFull-time capability would be excellent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Adjunct Professor

    Adjunct Professor (Current Employee)
    Lawrenceville, GA

    ProsEnvironment. Low stress if you plan ahead.

    ConsPay could be a little better per class.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdjunct salaries should mirror what the full time professors make. i.e. Business School professors should make more than English professors.

    Not What it's Cracked Up to Be

    Assistant Professor (Current Employee)

    ProsStudents are eager to learn and, for the most part, appreciate your help.

    ConsLeaders abuse their power. Employees consistently work 60 hour or more weeks and state standards for employment are not followed. I have seen colleagues treated in disrespectful, hurtful, and unfair ways, including being yelled at, lied about, and humiliated in front of peers. Management either initiates the abuse, ignores it, or supports it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's changing and not for the better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you're young and inexperienced this is a great place to get your foot in the door and add a few titles on your resume.

    ConsNot a great place to be a staff member. Administration is only concerned with keeping faculty happy and enrolling large number of students. This is not an institution that welcomes diversity. If you're a woman or a minority you won't go very far. You're expected to work all hours of the night and on weekends. Worklife balance is NOT taken into consideration at all!

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour staff carries the college. Stop abusing them. Shuttle some funding in the way of Student Affairs. The students that come to Georgia Gwinnett College (an open access institution) don't care if they faculty went to Harvard so stop investing money in degrees and start developing a supportive institution and maybe your retention will be better.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
