    Modest to low pay for adjunct professors who comprise a majority of the faculty; keeps the overhead down and provides a lot of professional expertise. No health insurance benefits.

    Seek more input from the adjunct faculty when it comes to various school policies; find ways to provide more adequate compensation for the work provided.

    Pros

    Steady work.
    Great co-workers.
    Good pay.
    Fulfilling job.

    I have a great boss who does not make my job any harder than it has to be.

    Cons

    Terrible administration.
    No room for improvement.
    Professors get preferred treatment over staff.
    Some professors are overtly egotistical.

    I had bad experiences with professors making ridiculous demands that I should not be responsible for. When I expected the administration to protect me, they will always side with their full-time faculty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone fairly. Your staff is the backbone of your company.
