    Unrealistic workload, lackluster compensation... but a good place to get your foot in the door.

    Pros

    Good opportunity for entry level college faculty. Anyone who would like to get their first opportunity as college faculty member could get some experience here.

    Cons

    Constant course schedule changes make it difficult to hold onto faculty for more than a semester. The pay is low for the faculty about half of what they could be paid at a traditional college.
