    Pros

    There's not many people to answer to in the entire learning enrichment center it is very laid back. You can pretty much make your own hours because you are working directly with student so you arrange when your meetings are. Tutoring is full-filling because you are helping learn. Managers are very easy to talk to and not in the least bit demanding or degrading, really nothing bad to say about superiors.

    Cons

    Procedure seem to change frequently and it can get confusing. Since you are working with students it is sometime hard to meet up with them because they are still not fully mature. The pay is low and basically no room for growth. No upper level classes are available for tutoring.

    Advice to Management

    Allow promotions in some kind of way. Allow for more upper level classes to be tutored.

    I worked at East Stroudsburg University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere in the department I was in. Good colleagues. Students were generally very good to work with. Excellent benefits for my family.

    Cons

    Temps don't get respect from other faculty or administration. No path to get off the temporary treadmill if you can't get your PhD right away which wasn't financially feasible for me. Could have done it part time while also dedicating myself to teaching but they only want PhDs due to state funding formulas.

    Advice to Management

    Allow a career path for temps to get on a tenure track while working toward their PhD. I was good at what I did and totally dedicated to the school and teaching the students there but was only allowed to stay a certain amount of time due to school policies. I would have loved to stay and make a career of it.
