    Flexible hours. Maximum 19 hours per week.

    Work mostly with ESOL students so you will be helping them with some very basic English grammar skills.


  2. Not a company that is family friendly or empathetic to new mothers.

    I worked at Brookhaven College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved it. It was a great collaborative environment, clear leadership in our department, and we got things done and had the occasional "fun time." It was great balance.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't all that great, and benefits could be better. Opportunities for advancement are also a little limited, since people stick around for so long.

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation and benefits, and this place would be perfect.

    I have been working at Brookhaven College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Brookhaven can be a good place for retirees who need a part time job to stay busy/provide a slight supplemental income. May also be good for students working part time who would like to work on campus, although pay will be lower than comparable private sector job. Adjunct faculty who have no desire to become full time and want minimal interaction with students may fit well here. College administrators are very well paid, although these positions are typically filled by individuals who have a special connection to current college administration.

    Cons

    Brookhaven suffers from a lack of leadership and accountability. Administration is more concerned with protecting their positions than doing what is best for the college and students. Incompetent employees and faculty are promoted, retained. Better employees are targeted by administrators as they pose a threat to the status quo. Pay for adjunct faculty and professional support staff is low, even compared to other educational institutions.

    Advice to Management

    Brookhaven needs a complete change in culture. Promote and reward your best employees. Establish career paths across all positions/departments. Encourage professional development. Provide tuition reimbursement for any course/institution (currently only applies to courses offered within the college district). Make providing educational services the primary emphasis of the college, cease the practice of individuals using the campus as a source of unfettered income.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. Cooperative supervisor and less pressure job.

    Cons

    Less opportunities for any raise in income or advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Please give your best tutors the opportunity to go above level 1 so that they are rewarded for the time and commitment. Otherwise good tutors will continue to leave in search of other jobs.

    I have been working at Brookhaven College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a faculty member it is a relaxed environment. The kids are pretty cool. If you really put in effort into your lectures, then they will definitely put in effort for you too. Employees are friendly, and the campus is a bit bigger than you'd expect.

    Cons

    The pay for a part time faculty is pretty low. I'ts about $2150 a semester per class. Depending on the department, the head faculty member may write the test. So you have to be thorough and encourage your students to use online resources, as well as books and notes.

    Advice to Management

    Change some of the "employee protocol". Seems like there are some things that are a little unnecessary and inefficient.

    Pros

    Grounds and facilites are nice.

    Cons

    Always trying to do more with less. Never enough funding to do things well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lobbying our state and federal legislators for equal pay with the private sector and better compensation for the most educated sector of our communities across this country.
