    Pros

    Motivated, appreciative students
    Great support from dean of the department and his staff

    Cons

    As an adjunct, it is almost impossible to develop collegiality because adjuncts are on campus for a short period of time. However, the department tried to build connectivity among the adjunct in a variety of ways.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to the good work!

    There is plenty of vacation time. Good thing, because you're going to need it!

    Management treats employees poorly, and is unsupportive of staff. Rewards bad behavior from students.

    Treat employees with respect.

    I worked at Broward College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Students are wonderful
    - Coworkers are wonderful
    - They have an adjunct union now

    Cons

    - The first time around, I was fired for asking for a place to pump breastmilk after taking only 2 days off to have a c-section. An investigation found incriminating e-mails, but no action was taken.
    - I worked for them again against my better judgment. After a year with excellent student reviews, lots of subbing, and offering to take courses at the last minute, I did not get a course one semester because they changed the system for giving availability without sending a group e-mail. Message after message went unanswered. I was told they were experiencing lower than usual registration and needed to give classes to the newer teachers rather than the older ones. This directly correlated with the election for the union, so I have no doubt that older teachers who had already been upset with their situation were being "let go" before the union contract was signed so they had less support.
    - Nobody in department answers e-mails
    - I never observed a single class during an entire year with six courses or in the almost three years prior that I had taught at a different campus.
    - They claim that enrollment is down, but the department has held open interviews every single semester that they were letting older adjuncts go.
    - Took an entire year to send an actual letter telling us that we don't have jobs. Every semester we turned in our availability and, if they bothered to reply at all, they would say months later, "There aren't any classes available right now, but we'll let you know if something opens up."

    Advice to Management

    Treat us like human beings. We have Masters degrees and PhDs. Even McDonalds lets people know when they're fired and answers the phone when their employees call.

    Pros

    They Respect your School Schedule and work around your hours. I think that's just because your Work Study.

    Cons

    There's too much drama amongst employees that it almost makes you feel like your in high school all over again.

    Advice to Management

    I just think some things should be more fair. The situation with all the gossip is kind of annoying and can jeopardize other peoples life or jobs.

    I worked at Broward College part-time

    Pros

    The students are wonderful. Excellent teachers.

    Cons

    Terrible pay that in no way reflects living wages. Tutors and adjuncts are offered the same pay that was given ten years ago. Tutors make on average what a retail employee would make - even tutors with advanced experience or degrees.

    Advice to Management

    Please raise your tutoring and adjunct wages to reflect something approaching living wages. This is absolutely atrocious.
