    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work time
    Ability to make a career change if desired
    Tuition assistance for extending your education
    The college has a good core mission and values. They operate much like a start-up which is refreshing to see for a college where things can be beaten down by bureaucracy.

    Cons

    The salaries aren't what you'd make in any corporate setting
    Raises are few and far between unless you change titles
    The college is very new, so some procedures that you may be used to may not exist yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more training opportunities for employees. Don't be afraid to let your employees have more of a direct impact on the student population.

    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is more than happy to lend a hand, or offer a suggestion, even if you're in the middle of a session or they are. It's a very welcoming environment for staff and students, and the management really lets you take the lead on things and set the pace in the workspace.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this soft-managing has repercussions, specifically when it comes to the student assistants and their understanding of what it is we "do." Many times they will seat us with a student who thinks they're getting their paper edited, only to have us tell them this is in fact the one service we do not offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get everyone on the same page. Have your tutors understand what it means to tutor the student in writing skills and strategies and not to edit the work for the students themselves.
    Have the student assistants learn the same, especially the fact that we do not edit. Rhetoric is everything, and the assistants are the first line of defense when it comes to making sure students understand what the writing center is for, and how they can best utilize its services.

    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Environment. Low stress if you plan ahead.

    Cons

    Pay could be a little better per class.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjunct salaries should mirror what the full time professors make. i.e. Business School professors should make more than English professors.
