Pros

Overall independence to pursue teaching. Position offers good flexibility as far as fitting in with other responsibilities within your life. As an instructor I had a good feeling about my ability to make a positive impact in students' lives. For many students who have a poor education background, Brown Mackie does offer perhaps the only hope of success and getting on the path toward a college degree.

Cons

Environment very, no make that "extremely," exploitive of students. From the overpriced books students are required to purchase from the "school bookstore" to the high cost of tuition, Brown Mackie has a system in place to more-or-less stick it to students at every turn. The college is a well-oiled machine set-up to maximize its profit largely on the backs of the poor. As a faculty member working within this exploitive system, somehow you have to make peace with it while you are there.

Advice to Management

Get an ethical backbone!

    Pros

    School dedicated to adults with family/job (other obligations). Students can work and complete school. School allows students who might not otherwise have a chance at higher education in to their programs. Most of the staff are incredibly dedicated to student success. Good pay rates.

    Cons

    Pressure from administration to pass all students through the programs, even if they do not deserve to pass. If students don't agree with teacher rulings they go to administration and get ruling reversed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of college president. He is a tyrant! Concentrate on providing quality education. Don't be afraid to let students fail classes and/or the school. The community will respect the school more.

    Pros

    Pay is good, hours are a bit long, and the flexibility is nice.

    Cons

    The classes are fast paced, completing one course in a month can be challenging for a few of the learners.

    Advice to Management

    Review the benefits of students using computers versus the i-pad.
