Pros

A lot of support given to faculty. If you need it, you will get it. Technology department is great!

Cons

It would be nice to have a place to download free software to stay "up to date" instead of having to pay for it yourself

Advice to Management

Give adjunct faculty computers or at least free software

    Pros

    nice co-workers; cutting edge technology

    Cons

    no opportunity for advancement or promotion; high turnover; high burnout

    Advice to Management

    Pay your long-term adjuncts a decent wage; also adjuncts should have some hope of getting a full time position. As of now, adjuncts are good enough to teach a class, but not good enough to hire full time.
