I have been working at Suffolk County Community College

Pros

The salary and benefits are outstanding. At times I have felt that I'm overpaid. As of right now you don't pay for your health benefits and the vacation time is overly generous. Also, as compared to a 4-year institution, you have very little night and weekend work.

Cons

Institution is VERY top-heavy. There are a whole class of college-wide Associate Deans who seem to do nothing. The institution would benefit from putting them back into the classroom and having lower paid administrators absorb their job functions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your people. The upper levels do NOT accept criticism well and have created an environment of fear of speaking up. The institution also gives in too easily to the few senior faculty who are entrenched and not open to new or fresh ideas.

    I worked at Suffolk County Community College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Clean and optimistic setting. Feel comfortable and inspired by other teachers.

    Cons

    Hard to get something full time. Have to sometimes deal with annoying co-workers but that's expected anywhere. The pay is pretty lousy for an adjunct. They need more full time workers or start paying adjuncts a reasonable salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ancient professors and hire some new and enthusiastic teachers.
