Current Employee - Adjunct  in  Biddeford, ME
Current Employee - Adjunct in Biddeford, ME

I have been working at University of New England

Pros

my department chair is kind and generous, easy to work with.

Cons

working as an adjunct is no way to live. unless you want to live in Biddeford (no thanks), you need to commute 30+ minutes to work.
the adjunct pay is terrible. but that's a university issue- not my departments.

    I have been working at University of New England full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Supportive leadership. Dynamic and useful academic programs for students. Encourages and promotes learning opportunities for faculty and staff. Not always focused on "just sit down and work"- annual fall assembly with President Ripich, various expos, health and wellness initiatives such as an annual 1-2 mile Fun Run/Walk. Family environment. Management acknowledges hard work. Encourages team unity. BEAUTIFUL campus on the ocean (and Portland has several historic buildings).

    Cons

    Having to work in the summer when the ocean looks so beautiful from our offices. :)
