    Advice to Management

    Wish there was a live chat for students who needed help for assistance, other than calling from a phone, like a tech support or something.

  2. It was great when I was hired but in 5 years it steadily declined to intolerable.

    Pros

    My co-workers were all great. Even my immediate management. There were lots of training opportunities. Senior management at the location was very accessible, tho not responsive.

    Cons

    Corporate policies from Pittsburgh, PA dictate everything. When the corporation isn't making money, you can expect a lot of take-aways. Year after year, things got worse. Pay is low to start with and raises are infrequent and small. Virtually no benefits for part-timers, the majority of the faculty. The demands placed on faculty got greater every year.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the high-performing schools, and fix the low-performing ones.
