A Mixed Bag

Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)
Tucson, AZ

ProsA great place to work at the functional level. I was treated as a professional and given a lot of autonomy by several department chairs. Great support staff and co-workers. As long as the students did not complain I was left alone.

ConsTypical educational bureaucracy starting at the division dean level. No thought to economy, efficiency, or end result. Focus is on process, procedure and asserting power and dominance in the hierarchy. Ultimately demeaning and dehumanizing. Adjunct is fine, but avoid full time if you can.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue -- you are not in academia, you are offering a serivce to customers, just like any other business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
