    I have been working at Johnson County Community College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The staff is very friendly and always helpful.
    They are very progressive in their business practices and apply the latest leadership philosophies.

    Cons

    There seems to be several part-time instructors, which is an advantage since they bring real world experience, but it is difficult for the instructors to collaborate on projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep pushing to be best in class and continue the development of faculty and adjunct instructors.

    I have been working at Johnson County Community College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Personal Growth: Even as an adjunct they offer full tuition reimbursement after your first year of employment. Lots of free training seminars to help bolster instructor morale and technique.

    Perks: Free gym membership and a private library for instructor resources. JCCC has an extensive collection of informative DVDs and textbooks with additional online training subscriptions for free.

    Company Values: Students are getting a terrific education for a fraction of the cost of some of the 4 year schools. I'm proud to work for a school that allows students to explore their options (if they even want to be involved in this particular industry) without breaking bank and feeling like they're in too deep to turn back.

    Senior Staff: The head of department really cares, not only about the students, but about the welfare of the staff. He goes above and beyond the call of duty making sure that we're all taken care of.

    Co-workers: Everyone's very friendly; strong sense of camaraderie.

    Cons

    Promotions: There are precious few opportunities for becoming full time staff (I attribute this to the economy & state funding).

    Hours: Because we're adjuncts, we're restricted to 2 classes a semester which is unfortunate. It forces you to into a position where you have to take on another job, which can be stressful at times striking a balance between work & life. I still give it 4 stars though, because it wouldn't be a problem if there were more of an opportunity to become full time staff.

    State Funding: Because it's a community college, they have to adhere to certain stipulations of the state which can be stressful. There haven't been any significant cuts in the department I'm working, but I think everyone's felt the pressure.

    I have been working at Johnson County Community College part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The environment fosters learning and collaborating. Faculty and staff work across disciplines to provide courses and develop degree programs that will serve students in the 21st century.

    Cons

    State funding has caused problems for all education institutions since 2008. JCCC has responded by making cuts, eliminating jobs through attrition, much like any other business. Leadership needs to closely examine the budget and earmark dollars appropriately.
