    I worked at Germanna Community College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are awesome. Having nearly 2 weeks off (paid) for Christmas and new years was amazing. State benefits are awesome as well.

    Cons

    1-year probationary period is hard to deal with. It can be an insiders club. if you're not in, good luck.

    Pros

    Great benefits, some departments really care about employees and students.

    Cons

    No raises, low pay. Much of management is like the three stooges - always power struggles between department heads that result in nothing getting accomplished, lack of respect for entree level employees, hard to change departments or move up within.

    I have been working at Germanna Community College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most people are really interested in student success and happy to work with you.

    Cons

    Money is terrible, regardless of your educational level. No benefits for adjuncts, even long term have had hours cut this year. Not employment to count on. Students are not encouraged to treat all instructors with respect. Upper levels do not support instructor choices for discipline or grading if the student makes enough noise. New changes in math and English are making the situation unpredictable for those getting students in other subjects like sociology.
