    I worked at Georgia Perimeter College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Colleagues, relative autonomy in curriculum and tests, opportunity to work with range of student abilities and backgrounds

    Cons

    salary is way, way too low.

    Advice to Management

    pay PhDs what they are worth and what they'd get at comparable jobs. Should not be receiving 50% or less of what K-12 teachers in GA get.
