    I have been working at Brooklyn College part-time

    Pros

    The campus has a good environment. Nice people around. Good facility such as library. Public transportation available. Can learn a lot in experience.

    Cons

    The pay is somehow low considering the task. Need much work off the office such as grading, preparing notes and quizzes/exams. The size of some section is large.

    Advice to Management

    It is better to have more training opportunity for adjuncts.

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule and independence from other areas. Good life / work balance. People are generally helpful.

    Cons

    The process is very bureaucratic. In my experience, position was granted after having a recommendation from staff. Internship did not give a real life experience on my field. Budget and resources are very constrained.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a competitive selection process based on skills. Provide growth opportunities for employees.
