    I have been working at College of Westchester as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close personal relationship from management. This family run organization engenders a great cohesive work environment. Comments and suggestions are heard and where possible implemented. Small tokens are givento employees at anniversaries and birthdays.

    Cons

    Salary increases can be spotty. Separation from the day and evening employees has been spoken about but has not been adequately addressed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open communications that are so much a part of the culture. The transition to new management was not clearly communicated and when communicated raised unnecessary cause for concern.


  2. Mixed bag of experiences.

    Pros

    Top notch deans in place. Very supportive of adjunct instructors. Compensation was in line with other colleges. Kind staff. Adjuncts were included in many activities and made to feel very much a part of the community.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was challenging due to the school-life balance pressure that students were under, many taking short cuts to survive.


  3. Great employee loyalty.
