    I have been working at Kennesaw State University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an adjunct I have lots of autonomy and can run the course using my own strategies for communicating with students. Lots of skills are learned on the job and many opportunities for learning from your students also exist. Supervisors are quick to respond as needed.

    Cons

    Course options may be limited and you may not get to teach the courses you prefer. Courses are only updated every 3-5 years which is a standard so you may suggest changes and never see them get implemented.
