    Pros

    Great colleagues can be found every department

    Cons

    Low pay, admin is insensitive to adjuncts

    Advice to Management

    Realize your adjunct pool teaches half the classes, so holds up a chunk of the school. And treat them with the respect they have earned

    I have been working at Ohlone College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff is great. Some faculty are wonderful to interact with, but other faculty need to realize that holding a degree does not make them more valuable than those who do not have a degree.

    Cons

    Some administrators are not personable and are aloof.

    Advice to Management

    Come down to earth.

    Pros

    Stress-free working environment, great team, etc

    Cons

    As a student aide, opportunity for advancement is low but no surprise there because the job applied for is just appropriate for students who will subsequently transfer to 4-year colleges.

    Advice to Management

    Good job, keep doing!


  7. Life is good if you have tenure; otherwise, it's a thoroughly mediocre place to be.

    Pros

    You get to help students achieve their dreams; the expectations for hard work are non-existent; union protection for lazy folks; free parking for staff; there's a pond behind the cafeteria

    Cons

    Decrepit 1960's facilities, good luck finding a parking spot, management perfectly happy to let part-timers string together multiple part-time gigs to pay the bills instead of hiring them on full-time

    Advice to Management

    Accepting pay raises while your staff hasn't had a raise and is worried about losing their jobs is certainly one way to do it... of course, it makes people hate you, so there is that to consider. Hiring two part-timers instead of one full-timer also makes you look like true pendejos.

    Pros

    The working environment is very friendly, co-worker are willing to help out each others. Also, they will randomly have potluck for lunch which every body will bring in some food and share.

    Cons

    Sometimes people come in with a very rude attitude, but still you have to deal with it. But rather than that, I cannot think of anything else
