    Pros

    I love the students and it is a nice atmosphere. There are some excellent teachers there.

    Cons

    Adjuncts do not have job security. They favor younger teachers - if you are mature, wise, good at your job, it is not valued. Typical college politics. Personality over skills. There is an in crowd, and they are the ones that get the perks and the jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the teachers with maturity and experience. The students will benefit.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Really enjoy the people I work with. They are very fond of throwing parties, birthdays, baby showers, someone is leaving, etc.

    Cons

    Hard to get a full time position. They only pay once a month so sometimes you go 5 weeks between checks. The work can be boring and repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes they want us to really baby the students. Don't lower learning standards to suit the students better.
