Pros

Little oversight, if you like working independently. Flexible schedule. Relaxed collegiate atmosphere. The students are from varying backgrounds, socioeconomically, ethnically, educationally.

Cons

Much infighting between management (director of programs) and faculty. Very disheartening, especially when support staff are ignored, disregarded, and disrespected.

Advice to Management

The faculty in our department were disorganized, harried, but definitely cared about education. The support staff are underutilized, underappreciated, and understimulated. Very little development potential for employees.

    I worked at College of Marin as a contractor

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere; Experienced, well-trained faculty; Mature & motivated students;

    Cons

    Physical plant in poor condition (as of late 2013); Equipment related to teaching in poor condition. Upper level faculty given too much authority to fire lower level faculty without due process...that includes teaching faculty who have many positive student evaluations over a 10 yr period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear-cut policy that utilizes fairness & due-process in hiring & firing faculty.

    Pros

    Some staff and faculty are exceptional. If you are in the union you have amazing benefits and job security.

    Cons

    Administration can take very long time to open a position, highly politicized environment. As a temp you will not be treated as well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees and take them into consideration when making decisions. Do not allow talented people to leave so quickly.
