Okay place... slow to pay invoices

Adjunct Online Instructor (Former Employee) Scranton, PA

ProsEasy work, good co-workers, remote workplace, started out a good job with plenty of hours but school lost a huge contract and there was not enough work for everyone.

Conslate paychecks, no chance for advancement, no raises in over four years-I became so bored with work I would try to find extra things to do only to get told not to do "extra work". What job does not want you to go the extra mile?

Advice to Senior ManagementTake better care of your contractors, give them at least partial benefits and direct deposit-sending checks through the mail is just not secure anymore.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
