Pros

It is a College: pays like a part-time-job but our contract is 180 days per year. Teaching is Fun too. Academic freedom is a very good thing. Lively intellectual atmosphere.

Cons

Pays like a part-time-job, not much room for advancement.

Advice to Management

Don't interfere with faculty. Try not to foist off endless tedious management jobs on faculty who are trying to teach 8 classes a year and stay current in their field. If we wanted to be managers we would have gone into business, and doubtless would be making vastly more money. Do your job. let us do ours.

    Pros

    A good place with a good mission. Students at BCC are there because they are trying to make a difference in their lives. The facilities are good. All in all, a nice place to work, if... you don't mind working in a community college (see cons below).

    Cons

    As far as I can, all community colleges have ambitions way bigger than their resources, meaning that much is done on a shoestring. Pay is relatively low, and staff are often hired to teach in a temporary capacity (i.e., no benefits).


  2. "Good Experience"

    Pros

    Good working environment and good health benefits which cover medical, dental, and vision. The area is nice to work in.

    Cons

    Lack of support and feedback in general, although there is good support from peers. Sometimes people gossip which is inappropriate and discouraging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to demonstrate values and support at all levels. Encourage and support is highly valued by people working with the community.
