Pros

One of the few places where you can teach with a Masters Degree, rather than a Doctorate Degree. Teaching can be rewarding when students put forth the effort. Faculty have some flexibility in scheduling classes, although often requests to teach were very last minute.

Cons

My local area campus (Detroit) was very disorganized. Students were unprepared for college, expected to get their degree too easily, and did not read/study for class. Faculty were expected to clock in and out - I have never been asked to do that before!

    Pros

    You only have to pay like $40 a class.
    You are able to get OT. Well, at least you were able to get OT

    Cons

    A lot of pressure to collect money, retain students and go way above and beyond without any recognition or compensation for your efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, give your employees that are constantly dealing with students, more money. Those in management or directors position just do reports all day...the success of the company is due to the group where the rubber meets the road.
