Pros

Huge student body across an age/abilities spectrum including a large and highly motivated immigrant population along with significant numbers of part time continuing ed professionals seeking career advancement training. If you can teach to this widely varied population then YOU CAN TEACH ANYWHERE!

Cons

College is poorly funded by a bloated city government and main campus is located in a high crime area. Administrators are largely pencil pushing bureaucrats with extremely poor people skills who spend most of their time hiding in their offices so no one will notice their incompetence and lack of knowledge.

Advice to Management

Senior management should immediately take some of the college's own courses in psychology, sociology, and elementary business management. Middle echelon management consists largely of fairly knowledgeable and motivated faculty whose advice is largely ignored by the imbeciles flying the plane. These folks should immediately return to the classroom where they'll be more appreciated and better utilized.

    I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia part-time

    Pros

    Gives you the opportunity to interact with a wide range of students and faculty and be a mentor to students who need the guidance.

    Cons

    No clear transition from part time to full time, politics (i.e., faculty have been working without contracts for a while with the possibility of a strike, without seniority there's no guarantee of course assignments, there are reports of racism within faculty hiring at CCP from time to time, etc.).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns and grievances of employees - regardless of their title/position - and try to be more accommodating to their needs and requests.
