    I have been working at Bucks County Community College full-time

    Pros

    Benefits of working here are lovely. In general leadership is flexible and supportive.

    Cons

    The salaries could be closer to the salaries of the local competing colleges and universities. Time to get out of the 1960s and pay a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Please work to be more competitive with other colleges in the area. You lose good people to local institutions and then have to create hiring committees, which costs money, then process new employees, which costs even more money, and finally re-train new employees which costs a very large sum of money. Training new employees has to cost as much as, if not more, than bumping up salaries for people loyal to the College.

    Very fulfilling work, it's different every day. Great benefits and work/life balance, although I'm sure some would argue with that.

    More transparency and authenticity.

    I have been working at Bucks County Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, light summer schedule.

    Cons

    Quality of students vary from semester to semester. Lots of coddling and hand-holding. Depending on department may not have much say as to what courses you teach.

    Advice to Management

    Allow faculty input for schedule. Let students learn consequences of not doing work.

    I have been working at Bucks County Community College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent place to work. Very supportive staff, excellent coworkers. Lots of equipment to make conducting labs fun for the students. Class sizes are small around 15 per class which is really nice.

    Cons

    I really can not think of any. It really is a great place to work. I wish my commute was shorter.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent job
