    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Central Piedmont Community College part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Location: working in the robotics and engineering lab with the other students led to hands on experience of projects and activities that I couldn't have gotten in any other part of the school. The engineering lab is great for students who want to be surrounded by other like-minded and hard working students.

    Cons

    Occasionally challenging to get homework done when there are a lot of projects going on.

    Pros

    It's impossible to move up the ladder as an adjunct at CPCC. They also do not compensate their adjuncts fairly... but that's just the overall trend in higher education.
