      Pros

      Casual environment. Capable bosses generally. Polytechnic cared about its staffs during pandemic.

      Cons

      Colleagues could be more cooperative. Instead of seeing requests from colleagues as more work for themselves, they should see be more customer centric.

      Come if you enjoy overwork

      Pros

      Teaching is a joy - you are in a nurturing role

      Cons

      Management don't seem to understand needs of lecturers. People don't get promoted based on ability, but they are just there right place right time. Overwork is rampant - they assign you tasks based on hours, except that the tasks need much much more time to be completed. But they call it parity. They send you off campus to teach and refuse to take into account your travel time. Some people get bullied by management. Course chair sent me emails and asked me to work while i was on maternity leave. COVID measures excessive - it's really dumb for example, to make people go in Group A and Group B for office visit but they can hang out in the canteen where everyone gathers and is more crowded...

      Pros

      Some colleagues are very nice - teachers arent competitive and tend to be emphatic people

      Cons

      Poor IT infrastructure. Alot depends on boss and unfortunately my department bosses are power hungry and keep pushing for CET despite staff being unable to cope. Mamagement hates some people; those never get promoted. Favouritism is rampant. Many work beyond paid hours. Includes pressure to work during maternity leave and annual leave. School treats their associate or part time staff so bad.
