    I worked at CSU Long Beach part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The location of the campus was very conveniently located in Southern California. The student body was very large allowing courses to stay in curriculum when enrollment waivered.

    Cons

    The red tape associated with the processes required to teach part time. It required a significant amount of personal time to negotiate the various offices and approvals needed to get things done. The lack of office administrative help available in some of the departments.

    Advice to Management

    Provide part time lecturers with extra help as they do not know the university processes and also alert them as to when you need their input and help. Some care needs to be taken to assure that the particular subject matter experts that are hired can navigate the university requirements.

    Pros

    Love their philosophy! We we're all about the kids, and respected them as humans. We were taught to never look down on them because they are younger and smaller than us adults. Management truly cares about the kids and you will learn so much.

    Cons

    Had teacher meetings every Friday night.
