    People so nice, like a big family, and they understand and help each other. The management team value employee and they are happy to help in a team.

    I don't think there is any bad sides to working with this employer. May be the pay is lower as government funding.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Chabot College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many nice people, both staff and faculty
    Some great students--very diverse population, mostly first-gen college students
    Nice campus (now that it has been fixed up)
    Pay is decent, better than hourly rate at most CCs

    Cons

    Because full-time, tenured faculty wield immense power, most deans fear them. Thus, some deans, if they have any insecurities, take their "issues" out on part-time faculty. I have seen some very good, talented, dedicated instructors treated like dirt and in a few cases, even fired over trumped-up accusations. I was not one of the latter, incidentally. I left of my own accord.

    Many full-time faculty--not all, by any means--have only thinly veiled contempt for their part-time colleagues as well. I take that back: they don't attempt to veil it at all. Full-time instructors say insulting things about part-timers as a group, even with part-time faculty present. This did not occur on one or two isolated occasions but several times. That can make it a very demoralizing place to work, despite positive feedback from students about one's teaching. If you have taught in the department I'm describing, I don't need to name it. If you've taught in a different one on that campus, you're probably okay.

    Advice to Management

    Any I can give would be ignored, since management cares only about the opinions of current, tenured faculty.

    I worked at Chabot College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The students are all very motivated. There is good support to help with the labs and lab setup
    The full time faculty are all very supportive and very hard working

    Cons

    The administration is a total mess. If you every need any paperwork or if you have an unusual assignment, don't expect to get the paperwork quickly or any extra pay that earn very quickly. Mine took about 6 months to actually get paid and now whenever I need paperwork, it takes months.

    Advice to Management

    Administration really needs to get their act together. I use the word 'administration" broadly because it seems to be problematic at every level.

    I have been working at Chabot College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Classes assigned according to seniority.

    Cons

    Part-timers have limited opportunities for advancement, and full-timers often prefer to work with other full-timers. Part-timers receive hourly pay (typically 3 hours per class) but typically work long hours (planning class activities, grading, communicating with students). You must love teaching; otherwise, you might become frustrated with the system.
