    I have been working at Broward Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Students excited to learn and want you to get them involved. Good opportunity for continuing-education pleasant campuses with good weather year round.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity to career growth and constant focus on being number 1 takes away from doing the right thing for students. Losing good professors because of politics and keeping hard working employees as part time hurts in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on promoting faculty and staff from within and not being proud of keeping someone as an adjunct for decades like they are happy with half pay and no benefits.

    I have been working at Broward Community College part-time

    Pros

    There are fewer pros when an administration changes policy without notifying employees/faculty and with little regard for students. But they hire administrators at very high salaries.

    Cons

    Negative impact on students because of little reliability on class offerings. Disregard for faculty. How do they expect to keep their accreditation and those awards they dearly cherish. No career opportunities. People are hired with certain expectations and then things change without any notification.

    Advice to Management

    None, because they don't care. They have their own path that they feel is correct without consulting both full-time and part-time faculty.

    Pros

    Job stability. Making difference in students life.

    Cons

    Politics, cliques and deeply rooted drama. There's this uneasiness that middle management always think you're trying to steal their job. It's like being on high school all over.

    Advice to Management

    Relax, do your job and stop looking over your shoulder. No one is out to get you. Let's work as a team.
