      Flexible hours, they worked with me while I was taking classes.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I have been working at Lone Star College part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        You get to design and teach your own classes.

        Cons

        There's no sense of community at Lone Star. I've worked there for a few years, and administrators and full-time faculty still have no idea who I am. Most of the administrators are only interested in furthering their own careers, not in helping others.

        Advice to Management

        Start treating adjuncts like actual people.
