    Adjunct professor, hired semester-by-semester.

    I have been working at Norwalk Community College as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The students are terrific.

    Cons

    No sense of being a colleague because hired semester-by-semester.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop lectureships, non-tenured full-time instructors.

  2.  

    A good community college with more stringent demands of its students than the four-year schools in the area.

    I worked at Norwalk Community College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get a lot of support from the chair of your department. Most students actually want to learn, which is always great. I had a great time teaching there. The pay is competitive for what's in the area. Although you don't get faculty parking, there are usually a few spaces open.

    Cons

    Well, if you're living the life of an itinerant, i.e., adjunct, you class(es) could get cancelled the night before the semester begins. But you can charge that to the game.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not to sound sycophantic, but I haven't been around long enough to gripe.

    I have been working at Norwalk Community College

    Pros

    School has a good reputation
    my immediate boss is very supportive
    pay is decent

    Cons

    Nearly impossible to get a full-time position and benefits
    Copy equipment is often not working and faculty support office is unstaffed
    some of the classrooms are in need of updating
    parking can be tricky at peak times
    admin staff can be very unhelpful and/or nonresponsive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available to faculty; stop changing the Blackboard system so often which requires us to attend classes on our own time; observe my classes more often.
