I have been working at George Washington University as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

Support from Chair and Administration. Students were very eager to learn. Use of computer technology. Chair assisted me with learning Blackboard, modifying syllabus. Students are encouraged and supported in community service.

Cons

Parking is limited. Lots of traffic. So it's important to leave lots of extra time to arrive early for class.

Advice to Management

Try to support adjuncts' parking.

    I have been working at George Washington University full-time

    Pros

    Tuition benefits at GW, retirement matching up to 10%, starting annual leave of 3 weeks and up to 5 weeks. Pays well for a University.

    Cons

    Slow to change and innovate. Not very agile. Often there are power struggles between business units that reduce efficiency for no reason. There are silos that are tough to break down.

    Advice to Management

    Working together to break down the silos would allow the University to be more agile.
