Pros

Focused leadership, no internal politics, students are what it is all about.

Cons

Things move fast! If you can't adapt and produce, you'll fall of the carousel.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep asking the question, "what's in it for the students"?

    I worked at National College of Business & Technology

    Pros

    Paid work, autonomy, and casual atmosphere are all I can think of for advantages. No direct supervision.

    Cons

    Inflexible hours; lack of effective communication as main drawback; personality conflicts with students, staff, and some high-ranked instructors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be an example to all and don't phone in your job. Be presentable, not intimidating or high strung

    I have been working at National College of Business & Technology

    Pros

    Staff are friendly and building is clean.

    Cons

    Adjuncts are only paid $15 an hour and only for actual time in the classroom. Pay does not account for planning, grading, grade posting, student e-mails, after-class time, or for time when school is closed due to inclement weather. There is also no office hour time. Although students pay about $1,000 a class (the highest of any trade school or community college), teachers will only make about $600 a course - even if there are 30 or more students in the class. $1500/course is considered, nationally, as "low-pay" for adjunct instructors, and NCBT pays less than half of that. The school has only a few full-time instructor positions - and these are classified as "department chairs".

    Also, many students, though older, act like at-risk middle school kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay instructors more - they're the ones doing all of the work. If you pay instructors more you'll retain them instead of having a constant revolving employment door (often-times mid-semester). Also, you'll have classes available to offer students. Students are recognizing that they are not getting the classes they need and this causes them to have to stretch out their graduation date. They are spreading the word and many are leaving for a better (and cheaper) education. They are also tired of the stress of having instructors quit mid-semester.
