    I worked at Ivy Tech Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The two biggest benefits are working with students, and an independent teaching environment.

    Cons

    The pay is insulting. I taught 3 classes (9 credit hours total) for a 16-week semester. My take home pay every TWO weeks was $530. Adjunct pay is around $1750 per 3 hour course.

    Advice to Management

    Stop exploiting adjunct faculty by putting your money where your mouth is.
