    I worked at Campbell University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule, Good work environment, you can have fun while you're working.

    Cons

    You get paid once a month, not many benefits for part-time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the student associates more engaged during work hours . Too many times I would be told to simply sit around and do nothing while a game was going on and this would be hard for me because I suffer from ADD. This isn't the fault of the Management but just something to maybe keep in mind going forward.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Campbell University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some professors really care about their students and have great energy. Certain people in the administration are AWESOME! The new president could potentially bring great change. It's a beautiful campus. And our new president seems very serious about listening to students and putting their needs first.

    Cons

    Some professors and department heads have very dismissive attitudes toward students and seem to be teaching because they get a thrill out of belittling young adults. Upper management puts too much trust in the middle management. Some middle managers are lying about how well things are going in their department. Mine is barely hanging on. The campus feels like it is in the middle of nowhere and students who stay on campus all week--mostly done by those who do not have cars--frequently experience bouts of depression around the start of Spring semester. The university claims financial health, but I think it acquires financial health, at least in part, by being cheap with its professors. My initial hiring salary was on the bottom of the large range of salaries acceptable for a beginning assistant professor, but I was promised I would quickly make up ground with significant annual raises. Once I started, I learned that the annual raises would not be significant. Our employee insurance plan is worse than the one I had as part-time employee graduate student. When I interviewed, I was also told that my department wanted my ideas on how they could grow into a larger department and maybe even a powerhouse within the state. Once hired, it slowly became clear that no one wanted to hear my thoughts about the program. I was just meant to stand in line and become a soldier for the ideas the chair of the department already had in motion.

    Advice to Management

    Closely assess individual programs. Talk to professors who are happy and unhappy. Talk to students who like the program and those who don't. FInd ways to encourage open dialogue and honesty. Try to get at the heart of what is really happening with the department. Can it be fixed, does it need new leadership, do some professors need to change, does it need to switch up what it teaches or when in the program certain classes are offered?

    I worked at Campbell University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a somewhat laid back environment--nobody works too hard, especially your students. You get some independence in how you do your job.

    Cons

    The pay is not very high, and they became cheaper over time about compensating for travel to the campus, which is in the middle of nowhere, so most professors live an hour away.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some benefits to adjunct professors and some hope of becoming full time, or at least any career growth.
