Neutral Outlook

I worked at Kirkwood Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Pride in mission and students.

Cons

Pay is very low for support staff.

Advice to Management

It is very obvious that admin looks out for admin. They all stick together, so there is no upper management to go to if there is problems with a current supervisor.

    Pros

    You do good for people who need a boost in life

    Cons

    Hierarchy often gets in the way of people doing what's right. Too many politics to play between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to what made it such a great place to work for


  2. adjuncts do most of the work and get little compensation, no benefits.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Kirkwood Community College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    interesting students; outreach to more remote/rural communities is commendable

    Cons

    adjunct faculty do most of the teaching work and yet get none of the security or benefits. kirkwood places a cap on the number of sections an adjunct can teach in a schoolyear, which most likely means you'll need a second job to earn a decent living.
