I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia

Pros

Huge student body across an age/abilities spectrum including a large and highly motivated immigrant population along with significant numbers of part time continuing ed professionals seeking career advancement training. If you can teach to this widely varied population then YOU CAN TEACH ANYWHERE!

Cons

College is poorly funded by a bloated city government and main campus is located in a high crime area. Administrators are largely pencil pushing bureaucrats with extremely poor people skills who spend most of their time hiding in their offices so no one will notice their incompetence and lack of knowledge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management should immediately take some of the college's own courses in psychology, sociology, and elementary business management. Middle echelon management consists largely of fairly knowledgeable and motivated faculty whose advice is largely ignored by the imbeciles flying the plane. These folks should immediately return to the classroom where they'll be more appreciated and better utilized.

    I worked at Community College of Philadelphia as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I always looked forward to going to work, the pleasant working environment was soothing.

    Cons

    Ironically, some of the students were difficult to deal with. Ironic, because I was a student at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It always pays to treat your staff with dignity and grace.
