    I worked at Central Texas College full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good money. Free housing and food. Being deployed to a military base was an interesting experience and after 330 days aboard, the fact that I was not entitled to pay taxes was great.

    Cons

    Tough work environment and high turn over. Corporate was quie serious and did not treat worker well. It was a serious dog eat dog atmosphere in europe.

    I worked at Central Texas College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits and time off are great. Opportunities to expand your knowledge base and education are offered and encouraged and they favor hiring from within giving excellent advancement options. Both departments I worked with were willing to work with everyone's schedule within reason.

    Cons

    Salary isn't great considering the amount of work and conditions. Supervisors and upper management seem to rarely be held accountable for their actions. Lack of employee support from EEO, response typically seems to be "its at the supervisor's discretion" even when federal laws are clearly being treated flippantly. Lack of communication seems commonplace, as well as extreme favoritism.

    My personal experience with management involved an FMLA incident that was horribly mishandled and consequently led to a great deal of misinformation discussed among my coworkers about me that made its way to upper management. I was never questioned, it was all just assumed as factual and because of the situation I was forced to contact EEO. Nothing was done about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps training your supervisors on people skills or what is expected of them in a management position would be helpful. Not everyone has the common sense to grasp that gossip does not belong in a work environment nor should confidential matters be discussed.

    Former Employee - Overseas Adjunct Professor  in  San Diego, CA
    Former Employee - Overseas Adjunct Professor in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Central Texas College as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Ability to accept or decline contract jobs. Almost complete autonomy over teaching methods and coursework. Regular visits to overseas ports. Can be an interesting experience if you are suited to the unique environment.

    Cons

    Cramped barrack-style lodging aboard military vessels at sea for extended periods of time during assignments. Disparity in quality and compensation of assignments. No chance of promotion from this position. No guarantee of work availability. College objectives are 2nd priority to everything else. Limited social life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better working relationships with those responsible for choosing courses. Better understanding of the needs of adjunct professors reliant on this job as their sole means of income.
