    I worked at Louisiana Delta Community College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Students were willing to learn, if they came to class. The other instructors were nice to work with and the facilities were fine.

    Cons

    They have too many staff and not enough full time faculty. Some locations there are more staff than instructors. They are building new buildings but hiring part-time Adjuncts to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate the staff. There is no need for a full-time director AND assistant director at the small satellite locations.

    I have been working at Louisiana Delta Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are major incentives to attending a Community college. Not to mention the obvious financial advantage,and also it is a place where one can knock out the general courses and explore other interests on a schedule that bests works for the student. While attending a Community college one will find some of the best impressive professors that will assist them to the next level of success. Transitional setting and first time generational students can attend.

    Cons

    Limited curriculum because this is only a two year college, so you will have to transfer to another college to further your education, lighter workload compared to a four year university and also lack of campus life because juniors colleges do not all have clubs and organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit! Recruit! Recruit! Make sure that there are academic advisers on board to lead the student in the right path.

    Pros

    Excellent place to work, with great benefits, co-workers are great!

    Cons

    State of Louisiana has budget deficits, and this sometimes trickles down and is reflected in our school budget...so money is tight as times.

    I have been working at Louisiana Delta Community College full-time

    Pros

    Fellow staff are friendly and make an effort to make you feel welcomed. Flexible about the hours worked.

    Cons

    No professional development, even if it is in your grant. Need 15 students to make a class. Tuition is high with little financial support for students. Will be told in the 11th hour if your class makes and you have a position.

    Advice to Management

    Registration needs to close at least a week before classes start. Negotiate salaries with staff to ensure flexibility about the number of students needed to make a class. When offering positions be realistic about salaries.
