    Pros

    As an adjunct teacher you are treated well and given the chance to develop your teaching skills. The students and staff are show respect and are easy to work with. Overall it's a great collegiate environment.

    Cons

    Don't let yourself be led on by the prospect of anything else that you are hired on to do. You may be given the same class load a tenured professor, but your adjunct status will not turn into anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with adjunct hires. Young teachers with young families are hopeful and somewhat gullible. Don't take advantage the situation.

    The job description for my position was not entirely what I expected. I'm seeking out deeper fulfillment in the work and the campus environment.
