    I worked at Orange Coast College part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Literature and Languages is a supportive and collaborative department, allowing a great deal of freedom to its instructors while also offering support and guidance where needed.

    Cons

    I love the campus and the collegiate atmosphere. Any 'complaints' I have are not unique to the campus but to the overall state of the English discipline on two-year campuses (funding, full-time/part-time ratios, etc.).
