    Former Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Long Is City, NY
    Former Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Long Is City, NY

    I worked at LaGuardia Community College as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A very culturally diverse student population, from some of NYC's largest public admin agencies (e.g., MTA, Board of Ed, etc.), most of whom are very eager to learn,

    Cons

    The city agencies do not pay their bills on time, which means that the faculty can wait in excess of 90-days to get paid! And students can be hours late to class, and still be accepted and get credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negotiate faster payment with the corporate clients, and better standards for employee attendance and participation.

    I have been working at LaGuardia Community College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Ideal colleagues - really wonderful people. Non-competitive atmosphere, but professional development is optimal. College Administration is pro-faculty. Great union! Release time for research.

    Cons

    University-wide administration is making terrible decisions that will change the school. Teaching load (already heavy at 27 cr/ year) will be dramatically impacted when 4-credit courses turn to 3-credit ones (i.e. one has to teach 9 courses instead of 7 to get to 27). A sizable minority of students have a negative attitude. They are apathetic and/or blame others/society/faculty for their failures. [Most students are great, but those who aren't can drain your time and energy].
