Pros

Good place to work. Very good benefits and more holidays. Compensation is decent compare to private companies. This is the place where you can balance your work and family life. The career growth may be limited for tech jobs. There is fairness and respect fro the employees. Salary raises are bases on steps. Medical benefits are good. Retirement plan is great. Good campus location.

Cons

You can not get promotion etc as this is public

    I have been working at Foothill-De Anza Community College District (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed environment and you get to interact with students on a daily basis. There is a lot of freedom and you can create your own schedule.

    Cons

    Full-time teaching positions are very hard to come by. Adjunct teaching positions can be very draining - no benefits, no compensation for commuting between classes/campus, hard to grow "roots" since you're not really a permanent part of the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's worth it and more respectful to the adjunct faculty by just creating one or two more full-time faculty positions while decreasing the number of adjunct faculty to support a division.
