    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ocean County College part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - pays more than some community colleges
    - some people I've met are nice.
    - a select group of students really care and make it kinda worth it
    - freedom to teach

    Cons

    - minuscule room for career or salary growth, no benefits whatsoever. The secretary and the janitor makes more than someone with a graduate degree.
    - work varies every single semester
    - many students don't want to be there at all
    - mandatory meetings and administrative tasks have been added to the job
    - full-time faculty steals classes (and hence, money) from adjuncts
    - online courses are a complete joke and a money-making scheme

    Advice to Management

    Morale is so low about adjuncts that it transfers to their teaching, which transfers to the students, who then question why they're wasting their time and money here. Enrollment will lower and I would not be shocked if the school faces a financial crisis or goes completely online.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Excellent co workers all over the campus. Excellent benefits if you are a full time employee.

    Pros

    Good boss, great working environment, very high pay compared to other similar positions nearby. And this requires 20 words so I am still typing

    Cons

    Not really many cons to be said. O C C is a good place to work with great people and a nice pay rate.

    I have been working at Ocean County College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty flexible, not rigid. The people are nice and the atmosphere is very relaxed. I enjoy working here and teaching the students.

    Cons

    Lack of oversight. You are pretty much on your own, and learn everything through trial and error. The pay is not great, but it is a nice part time job.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of oversight for adjuncts. Higher pay would be great.
