    Pros

    Teaching 10 months, all of the holidays off. take a fall break, Have a spring break. And usually about a three week break between fall and spring semesters.

    Cons

    Lousy insurance benefits, HR throws everyone under the bus equally. No personal growth has been seen. Adjuncts are all they want to hire to minimize their expense.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to help employees, with better development and professional programs.

    Pros

    Hires women and minorities for visible roles. Offers choice of pension or 401K.

    Cons

    Extremely low salaries! Will not give good salaries for your worth; and, especially not for your accomplished education, even though they are an higher education institution!

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to compensate staff and adjuncts their worth! Give tenures regular evaluations ensuring they are keeping up with most technical procedures and student behavioral standards to teach at an optimum level - this change could help with your low enrollment and student success!

    Pros

    I like working there - It is a good environment and the students are great. There is a lot of options for autonomy and I think that it has an ok combination of student-teacher interaction.

    Cons

    The school is very administrative heavy and there should be more focus on faculty hiring. It has come a long way during its growth but there is room for improvement with some management interactions - I think some kind of training is needed to teach personality styles and how to interact.


  7. Overall, Gateway is a good place to work.

    Pros

    The staff is friendly and departments work well together. Quarterly meetings help to put everyone on the same page. College president is friendly and approachable.

    Cons

    I can only speak about my department, but the leader isn't the best when it comes to personal growth or encouragement. More training and communication would benefit everyone. Sometimes we don't keep in mind what we are there for... educating students. It is always seems to be about money.

    Pros

    Working with non-traditional students is wonderful.

    Cons

    There are no promotions. Adjuncts are overlooked for promotions and financial opportunity. We feel like we must beg for classes, like dogs beg for leftovers under the dinner table. Instead of hiring a full time instructor--though many are within reach and qualified, they prefer to hire three adjuncts. I have had the same salary for six years.

    Advice to Management

    Consider investing in the talent among your adjunct population. Get your coordinators into the classes to observe your fulltime instructors. There is evidence of prejudice, racism, and poor teaching among them.

    Pros

    Work / life balance, benefits are great,

    Cons

    Supervisory feedback is poor, job expectations are unrealistic and need to change to keep pace with the industry they are servicing.

    Advice to Management

    This is where the problem is, people need to retire when they are 30 years behind the curve.
