Pros

The flexibility of your schedule.

Cons

They hire a lot of part-time help to avoid having to pay benefits. They require advanced degrees for full time positions even if the applicant is well qualified with a lesser degree. The pay does not warrant the requirement for a bachelors degree for many non teaching positions.

Advice to Management

Make your multiple part time jobs into singular full time jobs so you can offer benefits. If you are going to require four year degrees instead of two year degrees for full-time non teaching positions, then increase the pay and include benefits. Consider advancing from within even if qualified applicants only have Associates Degrees. You devalue the AS degree by failing to hire the very people you are educating.
