    I worked at Pasadena City College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Professional faculty that are also very friendly and very supportive. My schedules were flexible and they'd understand if I had any emergencies. Overall, just a great place to be.

    Cons

    I can't think of any very obvious cons as I was working part time and they made everything extreme easy for me. I felt there was very little oppurtunity for career advancement, however, but that's one of the things that just comes with being a student worker.

    To enhance knowledge in particular subjects, and the hours are flexible because they understand the employees are students.

    While my supervisor was fantastic, the college is mismanaged and HR was a nightmare.

    Pros

    I had a lot of flexibility with my schedule and was paid above minimum wage.

    Cons

    You are treated badly my HR and Fiscal Services if you are not a full time employee. Rule made by the administrators were changed often and left us lowly employees to deal with angry students.

    I worked at Pasadena City College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The staff and administration in my department were outstanding. PCC has a beautiful campus, especially for a community college, and I always enjoyed spending time there. They were extremely flexible in helping me create a schedule that worked.

    Cons

    Well, everyone knows it's difficult to make a living as an adjunct. That's no different at PCC. Yes, the hourly pay rates are good, but you can only get so many hours. They have very strict rules about that. No benefits aside from a fairly insignificant retirement program.

    My experience at Pasadena City College was personally and professionally fulfilling.

    I worked at Pasadena City College as an intern (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pasadena City College is a wonderful place to work because of its diverse student population and commitment to providing a superior educational experience and training. There are many opportunities to find creative solutions to overcome challenges that are a part to the educational process.

    Cons

    That they don't provide enough benefits for hourly employees and you have to pay for parking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put adjunct faculty on the tenure track sooner and give more incentives to stay at P.C.C.
