    I have been working at Oakton Community College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    relaxed environment, Benefits of being a instructor are nice, vacation time, pension after 30 years. Ability to work over the summer session as well for extra pay. Typical benefits working in academia environment.

    Cons

    No room to move up. Bureaucracy is awful here on the main campus. Nothing gets done efficiently. Wasteful taxpayer spending on things we don't need.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help those who show passion and dedication to move up. Many are stuck and with no raise and slowly losing incentive to work efficiently.
