    Pros

    If you're are pursuing higher education the tuition benefits are great. Lots of opportunity to for personal development and growth. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Overall, I had a great experience working there. However, during my time there budget constraints left us understaffed. I was constantly frustrated because I felt there weren't enough hours in the day to get done all that needed to be done, and was unable to hire more support staff to help.

    Former Employee - Adjunct Professor in Anchorage, AK

    I worked at University of Alaska Anchorage part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In my department, there was not a significant amount of oversight. I was allowed to teach my courses as I saw fit, as long as I stuck to the standardized exams. My daily workload was relatively small.

    Cons

    There was basically no chance to move up the ladder, and contracts come semester-by-semester. This makes it hard to plan ahead, because you don't know how many hours you'll be assigned a given semester, and thus how much you'll be making - assuming they even choose to renew you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for adjuncts to become more involved, and move up the ladder.
