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.

    I have been working at Community College of Denver full-time

    Pros

    The students are wonderful and yet frustrated by president.

    Cons

    Very toxic and abusive. Administration/HR does not care about students or faculty. They have cut virtually every program, however there is plenty of money for the president to travel overseas on a regular basis. The president will never support a faculty or student over a Chair or Dean.

    It is like living in an atmosphere of fear. People are afraid to come to work.

    Advice to Management

    Back up faculty and students! Your Chairs and Deans are not always right. The president does not listen. It is all about him. Look him up from his former school in GA.
