    Pros

    The management is understanding and treat employees very well. I work as a full time staff member in the adminstration building and as an adjunct instructor a few nights a week. I get the opportunity to see how the college function in multiple departements and campuses. It is a really wonderful place with great culture and wonderful people that truely care about the students and the college successs.

    Cons

    It is a state agency, and like any government run operations there are policies that must be followed. If you can't follow the policies this may not be the place for you. Other than that, I cannot think of anything that would make it a bad place to work. (Also the policies are standard business/public policies)

    Pros

    I 'm an adjunct instructor employed in the Academic Support Center at Indian River State College. I work on the Mueller (Vero Beach) campus which is 5 minutes from my home. Very chill environment in the Academic Support Center (like "Cheers" without the beer). Appreciative and accommodating ASC manager who really tries to utilize each instructor's particular talents. I go home with a good feeling at the end of the day knowing I've helped quell a student's academic confusion or anxiety.

    Cons

    Twenty hour a week maximum for adjuncts. No discount for classes. Tech issues with lab's computers are not always resolved in a timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    Need a uniform training protocol for dress code, cell phone use, advising students, administering/grading remedial student prescriptions, etc.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you can get in and the people at the top like you. Benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Politics are thick enough for all members to keep silent when people are openly shunned and/or yelled at by some in charge; and/or when these same people hire based upon personal agendas and friendships vs. qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Take the report of the Dean who had the courage to speak out and leave seriously.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Flexible hours and great pay. Very rewarding and understanding co-workers. Tremendous opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Avoid the office politics. Be ready to work hard with high course loads and be willing to travel. Short notice in change or addition of classes. Bad schedules sometimes depending on the semester. Very formal environment for a college.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair when reviewing individuals.
