    I worked at College of Marin part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The newly renovated campus is great and the student body is eager to learn. Faculty are knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Like all CA community colleges, the adjunct status means that your job is contingent on enrollment and you will forever be anxious at the start of each semester about whether or not you will have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to support part-time staff with with regular work.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at College of Marin full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some staff and faculty are exceptional. If you are in the union you have amazing benefits and job security.

    Cons

    Administration can take very long time to open a position, highly politicized environment. As a temp you will not be treated as well.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employees and take them into consideration when making decisions. Do not allow talented people to leave so quickly.

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

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits.
    Overall, a good working environment in comparison to some other Community Colleges.
    Very strong faculty union.

    Cons

    The usual bureaucratic nature of the community college environment. Unavoidable, given the nature of accreditation by WASC.

    Advice to Management

    Parking at the Kenfield campus is being chewed up by new construction. Management needs to be reminded that even in "eco-friendly" Marin, faculty and students still drive to campus; that is why is is called a "commuter college"...

    The College of Marin Men's Basketball Team is a phenomenal program and has created one of the premiere programs in California. Turning around a a down program and creating a league champion and elite 8 finish.

    Pros

    Teaching students can be inspiring. Teaching at the college level affords a certain amount of autonomy. Teacher calendars are nice when you also have your own children.

    Cons

    Part-time teachers are not treated as part of a unified team when it comes to department and program development.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how to better incorporate change and innovation, more quickly, to incorporate into the practices we are teaching, which should reflect reality and the current job market.
