    I worked at Portland Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People in general really care about student success at PCC, which makes for a good group of coworkers.

    Cons

    Employment term-to-term isn't stable for many. Granted, I was a casual employee, but I knew instructors who had been there for years and still were getting their hours cut , had their jobs reclassified to something without benefits, etc.
