Disorganized, poor management of faculty

Adjunct Professor (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

ProsOne 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.

ConsMy 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!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
