    Former Employee - Adjunct Lecturer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
    Former Employee - Adjunct Lecturer in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Trinity College Dublin part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I gained experience when I was working towards my doctorate in teaching and in the year immediately following. Because I was already known to my colleagues I had lots of support within my department, and I had students who wanted to be there.

    Cons

    As in most universities, the paperwork required to get paid in a timely manner was outdated and an obstacle. Better attendance by supervisors in lectures would give credence to the class as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your adjuncts kindly in this tough economic climate. It seems we're here to stay until the economy recovers.
