    Great college to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI was given a great deal of freedom to structure my course as I saw fit. There were ample opportunities for professional development, and the department paid my time on some of them.

    ConsSometimes I was given only a few days' notice before the start of the semester whether or not I'd be teaching.

    Fantastic, but want more

    Peer Tutor (Current Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsGetting to help a diverse set of people with an equally diverse set of questions. Working with all sorts of people helps break some cultural barriers, as everyone needs help with math. VERY flexible hours.

    ConsTraining takes a semester, counts as a 1 hour class. Minimum wage for specialized work felt a bit of a hit to the gut, but making money is good nevertheless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise the wages for the tutors. Value them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent programs but haphazard administration

    Instructor (Former Employee) Champaign, IL

    ProsParkland has some excellent programs and many serious, ambitious students. The facilities and technology are updated, and instructors have a good bit of freedom to run courses as they see fit.

    ConsThe administration in some of the departments is haphazard and disorganized. There are a lot of expendable adjuncts. I asked twice for my teaching to be reviewed, and the people in my department never got around to doing it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStandard procedures for evaluating adjuncts should be enforced.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
