    good place to teach

    Adjunct Instructor (Former Employee)
    Philadelphia, PA

    ProsContinuing Ed department is great to work with, lots of room to design courses and they're open to new ideas for workshops. Department also really forward thinking and looking to expand their offerings. Good salary.

    Consno benefits as an adjunct. also, classes don't run if registration is low. so no guarantees. otherwise, great place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand the curriculum in the certificate program.

    Political, unorganized

    ProsMost of the people at PAFA are great, you just aren't sure of their intentions. It is a well known institution, which is nice for networking and resume building.

    ConsPeople can be a bit snaky, just keep your head down and do your work. Everything is the last minute, so be prepared for no warning with projects and then rush to the finish line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more supportive of staff. Raises would be nice. Don't be so secretive about everything and make people feel like they are on the chopping block all of the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If you're not a male or a yes-man, prepare to be frustrated and underpaid.

    Non Faculty (Former Employee)

    ProsBasically, it's a known entity, but that's only because it's been around for so long. You can only coast for so long on that.

    ConsNo raises on some years, miniscule on others. It has nothing to do with performance - it's so-called 'cost of living'.
    All promotions have been given to males.
    You will be expected to do everying; there is no prioritization nor method to the madness. If you question, you will be labeled as 'difficult' and will be on the fast-track out the door.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
