More Pros and Cons

  1. "Review from a former student"

    I worked at Concordia University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great job for a student. There was time to study, but there were also projects to keep you busy and break up the monotony.

    Cons

    There's not much negative to report about a place like Concordia. The management is intelligent, thoughtful, and well planned out.

    I worked at Concordia University (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a Student Worker, the hours were very flexible! Great group of Admissions Staff to work with and to know.

    Cons

    The only con I would have to say would be communication. There were a few times that you were not notified if a counselor was in or not and it would delay the time of appointment for the student/visitor due to backtracking.

    Pros

    Student and Faculty interaction, Great work location.

    Cons

    Students turning in all assignments at once (8 week distance learners)

    Advice to Management

    Deter distance learners from completing all 8 weeks at once.

    Pros

    There is a nice, friendly community.

    Cons

    Nothing to do with the people, it's just that contract teaching is the pits. To make any sort of living at it you have to teach 5 courses or more per semester. If one school doesn't have that for you, you have to cobble it together from two or more schools. So driving around gets to be a big hassle, etc. Don't teach on a contract unless you absolutely have to.

    Pros

    Students, Office, Library facilities

    Cons

    Bureacracy is > faculty. First place I've worked in academia (of 3 places) where faculty were treated by management as leaf blowers treat leaves.

    Advice to Management

    New & Innovative <> Bad or for that matter, a threat.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Concordia University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work independently, online. Course is all set up with minimal input needed. Fellow workers are nice. Courses have other personnel to help (advisors) and project leads. Courses run 5 weeks. Based on Christian values.

    Cons

    The amount of work required for teaching a small amount is extensive. Other faculty may not be qualified and do not adequately prepare students, but rather pass them through. Additional work is required outside of teaching that can take from 1-3 hours per week. Technology support is slow and may take up to 24 hours (for faculty and students). Students may be rude and not prepared. Faculty are encouraged to allow multiple redos of assignments, which take up extensive time. Only allowed to teach one course at a time.

    Advice to Management

    None.
