Current Employee - Adjunct Instructor in Pompano Beach, FL

I have been working at Everest College part-time for less than a year

Pros

I absolutely love to teach, and I particularly enjoy teaching college students. Everest University--Pompano is a great place to work. My academic program director is very helpful. The majority of the students are working people and parents. I find that many of them are eager to get their respective degrees and continue to move forward and improve their lives. The administration does not constantly hover over instructors and really allow lots of flexibility in regards to student assignments.

Cons

Everyone goes nuts over student absents and attrition. I do understand -- school is a business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve salaries :)

    Pros

    You learn a lot because they dump a lot on you and you have no choice but to sink or swim.

    Cons

    Horrible leadership, no training, all about a numbers game and your number will never satisfy the company because there are so many students to place (in jobs related to their field--this is ultimately what everything comes down too). This is thanks to poor planning (enrolling too many students). Turn over is extreme, you will understand once you start--like something out of a movie. Never saw "Office Space" but heard lots of comparisons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Iron fists and extreme micro management will never yield positive results. Get managers that know how to WORK with a team, not slave drive. Left on my own, cherish my sanity.

    I worked at Everest College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary was good but considerably less than peers.

    Cons

    We often pretended like we cared about the Students, but it was only so that they didn't drop. Student withdrawls affect the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the acting job.
