    Pros

    Good boss, great working environment, very high pay compared to other similar positions nearby. And this requires 20 words so I am still typing

    Cons

    Not really many cons to be said. O C C is a good place to work with great people and a nice pay rate.

    I have been working at Ocean County College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible, not rigid. The people are nice and the atmosphere is very relaxed. I enjoy working here and teaching the students.

    Cons

    Lack of oversight. You are pretty much on your own, and learn everything through trial and error. The pay is not great, but it is a nice part time job.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of oversight for adjuncts. Higher pay would be great.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ocean County College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Physical campus is student friendly

    Cons

    1) unfair labor practices 2) no assistance to adjunct faculty members 3) blatantly lie to protect themselves 4) extremely low pay for required amount of work 5) instructors have no authority in their own classroom, be it virtual or physical 6) upper level administration has no real teaching experience 7) expects much and gives back nothing in return (this applies to instructors as well as students)

    Advice to Management

    1) Listen to both student AND instructor when formulating plans for the proper method of learning 2) increase instructor pay to be competitive with other institutions of higher learning 3) do not be so interested in student retention and gain a greater insight into what education is truly about 4) remove your youth-based administration and fill those spots with instructors who have years of teaching experience in the physical classroom 5) give the authority back to the professor and stop catering to the student
