    Pros

    Enjoy the collection, manipulation, and organization of data in Excel

    Excel is only a start for a career in the database industry. I need more and since I graduated from Ivy Tech with honors, it shows a lot of potential to employers.

    Advice to Management

    I am extremely intelligent and have a strong passion on learning new job skills.

    Pros

    Family environment, stable employer. The overall atmosphere is relatively laid back. Being a school there are a few months of "light duty".

    Cons

    The pay is quite a bit less than other schools in the area. Not a lot of focus on employee retention. Has been a trend lately to not fill vacated positions in order to save money.

    Pros

    Supportive leadership. Great benefits. Upbeat atmosphere. Large enough college to make a real difference in our community, small enough that it feels like family.

    Cons

    Compensation could be better. Departments operate on a small budget. Sometimes it is hard to balance work and family because we have so much to do and not enough resources to get it done.

    Advice to Management

    If compensation can't be increased, then other benefits need to be offered to make the working environment a more enjoyable experience so we can attract and retain great people.

    Pros

    You get to teach in a subject you love. As an adjunct, you are outside of most of the politics. Compensation is good, but very low if you take into consideration that you will probably be driving to several campuses. Most of the students (especially the returning adults) are working hard to improve their lives and appreciate good teaching.

    Cons

    The pointless activities increase every semester. In addition to teaching and grades, you have to attend seminars, take online training, submit student progress reports, and enter attendance. Driving (especially in winter) cuts into how much you earn per hour. The rules change constantly about how many classes you can teach.

    Advice to Management

    Adjuncts are the life blood of Ivy Tech. They do the grunt work. Figure out what you are willing to offer and what you want to demand and stick with it. Assign classes the semester before rather than a couple weeks out for returning adjuncts.

    I have been working at Ivy Tech Community College

    Pros

    The benefits are very competitive, great vacation, sick time, and health plan. The overall atmosphere is very geared towards student success. I feel that my current position affords me job security.

    Cons

    Current position requires the duties of 5 different departments with only 3 staff members. Central Office decides protocol when they don't meet with students to know what the day-to-day operations are like. Current management does not respond to complaints constructively and hires whoever they want not based on qualifications. Nowhere to move up and pay is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. If pay cannot be increased then the work environment needs to be changed to compensate. Hire competent workers who prove that they want to be here.

    Pros

    Great environment to work with others. Sense of professionalism with a taste of fun and good humor. Would recommend to anyone

    Cons

    There are no cons. Colleges get bigger due to students wanting to make themselves better. Just have to serve everyone with a smile and the greatest of urgency
