I have been working at Carroll Community College part-time

Pros

For the most part, department chair offers scheduling flexibility. Colleagues are congenial and, unlike some colleges, full-time professors respect and support adjuncts.

Cons

Salary is low. Many students are unprepared and uncommitted, lacking any perception of what college-level work necessitates. Because of that, there is an ongoing effort to push professors to lower expectations to keep students happy and get them through no matter what. Even though adjuncts teach more classes and, therefore more students than full-time professors, adjuncts have no voice in departmental decisions, not even the decision which textbook the department adopts.

Advice to Management

Keep in mind that there are students who are planning to transfer to universities who are short changed each time we "dumb down" the curriculum or grading standards for those who will eventually drop out anyway because they really never wanted to go to college in the first place.

    Pros

    Typical benefits provided by other educational institutions in the state.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a competitive salary and the stability of a public institution, look elsewhere. As a small institution located in Carroll County it's public funding is limited as well as its staff resources.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a culture of Leadership as opposed to simply managing workers.
