    Pros

    Lots of holidays and leave time
    Some flexibility in work hours
    Congenial colleagues
    Pleasant work environment, attractive campus

    Cons

    Some people get away with not doing their jobs
    Pay rates are not up to date
    No matter how hard you work, how exceptional your work product, and how grateful and appreciative your customers/clients . . . you will get no better than a 'good enough' at your annual employee evaluation. This is what HR wants.

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume that because someone is a Blinn graduate that they will be an effective employee.
    Do not assume that your managers are doing their jobs.

    Pros

    It is a pleasant working environment where co-workers are friendly and helpful. The give you everything you need to be successful. There is great job security because of the exploding growth of the college.

    Cons

    They are pretty stingy when it comes to reimbursement. I never was reimbursed for my travel to come down and interview and there was no moving assistance for a 1200 mi. relocation. Also, you must pay half of your families insurance premiums.

    Pros

    Excellent environment to work. Fantastic coworkers. Everyone on campus is cordial, even if they do not know you.

    Cons

    Sometimes, there are quite a few tasks to finish because departments are shorthanded. Many things to do, not enough people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that work loads should be distributed evenly. Putting too much on one employees shoulders makes it difficult to get things done.

    Pros

    Great Communication among other part timers! Lots of help from other adjunct team members.

    Cons

    office space for adjunct professors severely lacking in equipment, technical support and space. Not kept clean and often found that we cleaned it ourselves. Just not supportive for folks who were not considered full time. Would rather hire cheaper adjuncts, than to take full time hires and worry with benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the part time help you are taking advantage of with lesser pay. We work as hard as full time staff and without the benefit of job security. We bring a lot of experience and positive energy! Hire us!

    Pros

    Flexible, calm and friendly environment.

    Cons

    Low pay and low office space.

    Advice to Management

    A higher budget would increase employee satisfaction for both employees and students.

  11. Easy laid back experience but not a lot of room for growth.

    Pros

    It has a very laid back environment, with very friendly people. The work is not difficult, and time can fly by when you are there.

    Cons

    It can be understaffed at times, adding to your individual assignments. At times it can also get a little dull making the day go extremely slow

    Advice to Management

    Offer small promotions to workers after a year or 6 months on the job. Make sure that all shifts are properly staffed.
