    Current Employee - Evening Coordinator in Austin, TX

    I have been working at ACC part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is hard to hired on as a permanent employee

    Cons

    High turn over rate because of the rate of pay!! People move on to brighter and better employment. Half of the staff is hourly employee with no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open to new ideas and overlook adversity. increase wages, the requirement for the positions does not match the pay. The Professors and Managers receive the better pay.

    I have been working at ACC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits to include Winter and Spring Breaks. Flexibility, supports gaining additional degrees while working. Great people.

    Cons

    Too many exceptions to the rules. Whoever yells the loudest gets it. The top is scared to make decisions until its too late which causes decisions to be made by default. College needs automation of forms. There isn't any upward mobility; flat organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a process for providing promotions. Offer 4 day work weeks in the summer time.

    I worked at ACC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good for the job and full benefits were nice. Great group of people to work with. Paid holidays - when the college is closed you don't work so you'll get a nice break for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Schedule never really changed it was a normal M-F/8-5. Tuition wavers were very nice 3 free classes a year.

    Cons

    Just needs a little upgrading still using paper documents that should be converted to electronic format or at least given the option to do either - lots of paperwork.

    Adjunct professors are treated like tissues -- use 'em and toss 'em.

    Former Employee - Adjunct Assistant Professor in Austin, TX

    I worked at ACC part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It can be fulfilling to work with the students who are working very hard towards achieving their dreams.

    Cons

    Some adjuncts "pay their dues" as low-paid part-timers for years and years before being given a shot at a full-time position. It's demoralizing and dehumanizing in a way. Plus, it does a disservice to students, who are given a series of green instructors walking through the revolving door. Few can survive on an adjunct's income long enough to make it to the rare full-time position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rely less heavily on adjuncts. Pony up the benefits and show some loyalty to your people if you want their loyalty in return.
