    cuts hours

    Advice to Management

    Be up front about pricing and hours as a student worker, we are looking for expirence not to be rattled around. I should have been told early on that i would need a second job because there isnt any raises.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Brookdale Community College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Student feedback is gratifying. Department secretary is helpful.

    Cons

    I have been an adjunct professor at Brookdale since 9/07. I have never had a salary increase. If I am sick, I am docked that day's salary. I was docked for missing class due to my father's funeral!

    Advice to Management

    Pay adjunct a salary more commensurate with the hours we put in both inside and certainly outside the class.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Brookdale Community College (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and peer staff relationships.

    Cons

    Brookdale used to be a fabulous place to work but that has changed. Employees are overworked and departments are understaffed. Raises are minimal EXCEPT if you are in the highest levels of administration where they recently voted themselves a hefty increase.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking your employees are stupid.Say "good job" now and then. Provide adequate staffing. If your employees aren't happy, take a look at why morale is so very low.

    I worked at Brookdale Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very inspiring staff, with lots of dedication and integrity.

    Cons

    You are a little too much on your own - need to be given more direction on exactly what is expected and hoto go about it.

    Advice to Management

    Salary could be higher. Getting paid twice a semester is rough.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Brookdale Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My department is actually pretty supportive. I like my fellow professors, and the support staff is pretty good too.

    Cons

    As is typical of adjunct positions, the pay is extremely low, and there is no hope of advancement. If you're lucky, you'll earn grocery money until a real job comes along. Ha ha! Kidding! There are no real jobs!

    Advice to Management

    Nobody can survive as an adjunct. Sooner or later, we'll be gone for one reason or another.
