    I have been working at Ivy Tech Community College part-time

    Pros

    Good student experiences, understanding boss, flexible

    Cons

    Time involved to learn college system, keep up on trainings, etc. are not compensated.

    Advice to Management

    Ivy Tech is a good employer generally, but adjuncts everywhere do a lot of heavy lifting for their schools with very little pay.

    I worked at Ivy Tech Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Having worked at the College for over 15 years, faculty are dedicated and great to work with.

    Cons

    The constant shift in policy on a regional level is confusing and often a effort in futility and time. Causes loss of time to prep for classes, significant increase in meetings and added responsibility without increase in pay.

    There is a total disconnect from administrators with staff and faculty in almost every area. Any regional policy, if it has a negative impact is always blamed on central / systems office; when in fact it is a regional decision.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to have success and a positive reputation in the community, include staff and faculty with regional decision and not the selected favorites.


  5. "Worked for a college student"

    Pros

    Great team of people at Ivy tech

    Cons

    Obviously, $9/hr isn't going to work for anyone.

    I worked at Ivy Tech Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer great vacation days and sick days.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. They only give a 2 or 3 percent increase a year which doesn't even keep up with inflation. For the 2018-2019 school year, they only gave a 2% bonus so as not to increase our hourly rate.

    Advice to Management

    Please start valuing employees.

    Pros

    Great staff, huge demand. Work/Life balance is wonderful. Students are great, too.

    Cons

    Money, money and money. This is really the only problem. But it's a big one.

    Advice to Management

    There's a teacher shortage, so why isn't the pay like nurses?
