    I worked at CUNY (City University of New York) part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working in a good public university system with various resources, minimum oversight (the pro is you can teach however you want to, but see cons), good health insurance for qualified adjuncts and tuition remission for Cuny graduate students in their first 5 years.

    Cons

    Extremely clunky bureaucracy, first paycheck is always very late (ie. halfway into the semester), pay is dismal for the work required, large class size, under-prepared students at higher levels, minimum supervision and opportunities for feedback/evaluation -- hard to get references eventually.

    Advice to Management

    Pay adjuncts $7k per course, hire them on a yearly or longer basis, cut the red tape
