Great gig for extra spending money

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee)
Marion, IN

I have been working at Indiana Wesleyan part-time for more than 3 years

ProsTeaching with IWU as adjunct faculty provides for lots of flexibility. This teaching position allows me to help adult students earn their degree while working full-time and having a family. The curriculum is provided so the time commitment is less than you would expect. I teach both online and at a couple of the satellite campuses. The face to face interaction in the classroom is rewarding. The technology used for the online learning culture is not bad. It is refreshing to be able to share my faith in the classroom and know that it is expected, not frowned upon. A great university with a wonderful mission.

ConsClass sizes have been getting very large lately which is time consuming if you teach properly. Doesn't pay great now that the commitment has increased. When the classes were smaller, the pay seemed to match the time commitment better.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you are going to continue with such large classes you need to pay your instructors to reflect the extra work.

Good company going through tough times

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Indiana Wesleyan full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat vacation benefits (4-5 weeks per year when you combine wellness days)
10% toward retirement
Decent healthcare plan
Not overly quick to let people go
Work hour expectations are generally reasonable

ConsI have worked with IWU for 7 years and have few complaints. Right now we are going through a crunch time due to economy and it has been difficult all around, especially for faculty and some employees working with traditional students. Salaries are mid-range. However, they are not as high as for-profit colleges or some private colleges.

Outstanding place to work!

Adjunct Faculty (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Indiana Wesleyan as a contractor for more than 3 years

ProsIndiana Wesleyan has supportive staff, excellent mentors, superior academics, state-of-the-art technology, up-to-date resources, and persons available "face-to-face" and "voice-to-voice" as needed. This place is not an automated system, but provided highly individualized service both to employees and students.

ConsEmployees may have to travel long distances, but milage is reimbursed.
Pay may be slightly below the industry average in certain catagories.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management deserves applause for being available to assist staff as needed! Management works tirelessly and extensive hours to serve the staff, and does this well.
