    Continue to support the Service Excellence program. It is slowly making a difference in our department for both staff and students.

    I worked at College of Southern Nevada part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The staff is very helpful with providing a lot of teacher support and relative autonomy while teaching.

    Cons

    Only part time-work, about 9 hers per week, so you really need to consider this position only if you are retired or already have a decently paying job.

    Pros

    It is fairly easy to do your job and since there is no chance for advancement or a pay increase once you are tenured, there is no need to do anything extra

    Cons

    No way to increase your salary once you become tenured

    I have been working at College of Southern Nevada full-time

    Pros

    The school has a fairly positive environment and the employees are fairly kind.

    Cons

    There is favoritism and salary discrepancies. You need to have the right degrees to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Make salaries of the same position even across the board with equal experiences.

    I have been working at College of Southern Nevada part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent colleagues. Flexible schedule. I work very independently, which I prefer. I do not have to deal with micromanagement or other ridiculous demands from the boss.

    Cons

    Adjunct employees earn approximately one-third the salary as a full time faculty member per class, despite having the same responsibilities and qualifications (though, to be fair, this is endemic to higher education across the US)

    Advice to Management

    Lobby for federal policies to change so that adjunct faculty will be paid an equivalent salary and benefits.
