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

    Pros

    My Dean allows me to conduct my class as I see fit. As long as I am adhering to the class descriptions and objectives, I am free to create the teaching environment I feel is conducive to student learning.

    Cons

    Difficult to obtain full time status. Most of the faculty is adjunct or part time. So there are no benefits as well.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great school dedicated to serving students. All of the staff I have interacted with have been friendly and helpful. The lack of advancement to full time is very frustrating.

    Pros

    The small campus allows for teachers to know students by name and major. It also encourages communication between student and teacher, and peer to peer. I live close to the campuses and the parking is free. Classes are never larger than 18 students per class. Diversity in majors and trade education is exceptional. Excellent provider of community service. Excellent education for a considerably lower cost than most colleges and universities.

    Cons

    Because the college is considerably smaller than most, people seldom leave their position. Turnover is non-existent. Since they count on government grants new courses are seldom added, and existing courses are seldom expanded therefore, adding new professors to the employment roster will not happen any time in the future.

    Advice to Management

    They should examine the teaching talent they have in their midst, and approach those instructors with teaching job offers before seeking outside applicants. BC3 like other similar entities has an extremely rigorous hiring process and therefore, part-time talent is given no priority treatment and is forced to apply the same way outside applicants must apply. I suggest BC3 look within their own list of per diem, part-time, and fulltime employees and give them first priority before seeking outside talent. They could save time and money from advertising and interviewing by offering existing employees these positions.

    Pros

    The people are great. The campus is beautiful. They offer great benefits. Sensitive to the needs of its employees. Professional development is well-supported.

    Cons

    Depending on the position you are working in, the pay is not comparable to that of working out in industry.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees equally regardless of department, funding source for the job, education level and age. Listen to what your employees have to say.
