Pros

Downtown location. ability to teach a wide variety of courses. Most of my fellow workers are friendly and helpful. Good hours, and plenty of freedom in creating the kind of class that you want to make for the students.

Cons

Lack of financial resources by college; low pay. Lack of benefits; reliance on adjunct faculty; no benefits; the students sometimes try hard, but sometimes you have to convince yourself to make it work. Lab equiptment, supplies, and other resources are in short demand and it forces you to improvise. Organization of courses is not always the best and courses are sometimes given to faculty a few days after the course begins.

Advice to Management

Leadership is needed big time; cut the amount of senior management and make faculty the top. figure out a way to work with metro state college since you're so close.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Community College of Denver part-time

    Pros

    Enjoyed my peers and their love of their chosen field and great desire and passion toward recruiting and training students to be real working professionals.

    Cons

    College did not respect Adjunct Faculty starting with the President.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that post-secondary education is changing tremendously ... CTE is nothing to be looked down upon. Many, many students have started careers with a CTE background and today hold key positions within many companies and industries. They should be applauded rather treated like they are second class citizens.
