    Pros

    Nice people.
    Community.
    Fun talking to people.

    Cons

    It is an okay place to work.


  3. I worked at Anne Arundel Community College

    Pros

    In addition to the excellent classrooms, the college has a robust online student/teacher portal to keep abreast of notes/ homework/ grades/ emails etc. This allows the teacher better communication while not in the classroom and more time teaching students while in the classroom.

    Cons

    The instructor assignments were on a per contract basis - no guarantee there would be a need for the same class or amount of classes the next term.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if a base contract (minimum) could be guaranteed for each term to ensure ability to stay at this position for many years.

    Pros

    Nice work space and people, dedicated to doing a quality job each day.

    Cons

    Mired in older technology and resistance to adopt new technologies and take a more global perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get a little more involved with the latest trends in technology and not be so married to the way things have always been done. Innovation is the way of the future, not stagnation.


  8. Good place to work

    I have been working at Anne Arundel Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Positive work environment and the staff/faculty are friendly and truly helpful to the students. Employees here seem to genuinely like their jobs and respect their employers.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement for adjunct; the ratio of adjunct to full time makes it unlikely you'll move up any time soon. This is true for adjunct everywhere, though, not necessarily the fault of the college.

    Going downhill in a hurry.

    I have been working at Anne Arundel Community College

    Pros

    The benefits package and leave plan is amazing; It is what keeps me here. I pay little to nothing for medical, dental and vision for my husband and myself. I can take leave pretty much whenever I want and get paid holidays when the school is closed ( Winter Break, Spring Break, MLK Day, Thanksgiving, Memorial Day, Forth of July).I think that you would be hard pressed to find another employer that gives you such cushy benefits.

    Cons

    The job itself is monotonous. The students have gotten much ruder over the years and the parents have become the same. Anyone that calls up a business and curses at the person that's trying to help them is just not cool. It used to be great... but as I said the whole college is going downhill. The right hand has no idea what the left is doing. The turn over of management has been increasing. Everyone is jumping ship. There have been no raises in YEARS for anyone however, everything can get remodeled whether or not it's needed.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key and it needs to be better at AACC! No one has any idea what anyone else is doing. A few of the newer higher ups have completely destroyed the culture at AACC. The new dress code doesn't make us approachable to students.

    Pros

    Educational benefits, not-for-profit, feeling like what you do is for a cause nobler than someone's bottom line.

    Cons

    Attitudes of some in management, lack of innovation or innovative ideas, a sometimes glacial pace for getting things done, politics.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at how management interacts with subordinates and take corrective actions if necessary. Think outside the box!

    Pros

    Benefits, hours, and employee parties. It is also located in a nice area.

    Cons

    No chance of advancement.
    I need to add more words, but have nothing to say.

    Advice to Management

    Help people who want to advance, advance.
