    I have been working at Parkland College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very stable work environment. Many career oriented and talented faculty and staff. We try to provide the very best education possible based on the funding we currently have. Always exploring new technology and ways to provide the best education available for our students.

    Cons

    Budgetary issues have created some necessary reductions in faculty. This hurts everyone and is not fair! We all know it is the lack of state funding that has caused us all a lot of unnecessary pain. We the State of Illinois to fulfill their obligation to Higher Education!

    Advice to Management

    Stay diligent and encourage state leaders to provide stable funding. Ask them to quit fighting and reach across the isles to truly compromise and agree on funding! The lack of a state budget should never occur! Why can't they all just get along?

    I worked at Parkland College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Teachers are given a list of things to be taught and the instructor may use any means to teach the the listed items. I was given the luxury to be creative and to teach to the students' needs.

    There were a wide variety of student skills and needs. Trying to make sure I reached every student was a challenge.
