    Pros

    I enjoy working with the students here!

    Cons

    There is currently a merger taking place with Georgia State University. Not sure how it will affect current employees of GPC.

    Advice to Management

    Depending on your department, management may come as micromanagers. Can't really speak for other departments.

    Pros

    Let's see what changes GSU makes. Clearly, they are driving this merger between the schools

    Cons

    Low pay, lip service to serving students doesn't filter down through org. Highly disengaged workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Step aside and let GSU takeover

    Pros

    I was able to teach my curriculum without much imposition from other faculty members. I do recall that teacher evaluations were administered fairly frequently. But overall, the faculty were very helpful and eager to aid me in my professional work. In addition, the students were highly motivated and wanted to do an excellent job. I believe I had minimal behavioral issues while I was there. I would like to highly recommend the ESL department at Georgia Perimeter College for doing a fantastic job of making adjunct employees feel at home.

    Cons

    I found that much of the work was fairly impersonal. Mainly, showing up for classes and teaching at regular intervals was the norm. I would have liked the opportunity to get to know the faculty better, perhaps through a meet and greet or orientation session. Also, the ESL department is fairly closed off from the rest of the college. It would have been good to be able to see some of the other programs at work, and if possible, to participate in faculty events. That would have been more advantageous in making connections at the college. As it was, the department head did not exactly volunteer to give me opportunities to prove full-time faculty status.

    Advice to Management

    Given the merger with Georgia State, GPC will be going through some academic purges. But I strongly advise the upper management to keep the adjunct staff on call. It is through adjuncts that the college is able to handle a fluctuating enrollment, and keep delivering quality service to the students at GPC. The way the college treats its adjunct faculty is endemic of how it treats its faculty as a whole, and it is necessary to make new faculty feel welcome. I would like to see the college up the compensation for adjunct faculty, because they are expected to work on a limited budget that often requires them to pay for their own photocopies, materials, and other incidentals. Much of the net pay is funneled away in Healthcare plans, since the college doesn't provide benefits to its adjuncts. Make sure they are adequately compensated for the work they do!


  11. I have enjoyed many aspects of my job, but now with a change in leadership and management style, it is time to move on.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the students, and time off for holidays is a definite perk. As a salaried employee, I have some flexibility with my daily work schedule.

    Cons

    Management seems unaware of problems that are causing low morale and apathy.
