    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte part-time

    Pros

    Working with students has been a blast. Management is really one directional and you will be able to get answers you need in a jiffy without having to climb the hierarchy.

    Cons

    The pay isn't wonderful. I believe they're going through financial crisis.

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy going. Always willing to help.

    Cons

    Don't always give all information because they forgot you haven't work there forever.

    Advice to Management

    Have a listing of what is available for instructors and students for adjunct professor so they know what is offered.

    I worked at Queens University of Charlotte (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very nice people to work with. For the most part people were helpful, considerate and nice to interact with. Work hours were some what flexible as long as the work was completed. The environment was pleasant, though some areas better than others.

    Cons

    It really depends on who you are working for. I saw some things change for the worse as my supervisors changed. They need to do a better change or training new employees, and retention of employees would be better with training, clearer expectations and better pay for the working employees. Not much room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with employees as to what the needs really are. Some managers are not in touch with what resources are really needs to accomplish work, and how much time is needed to accomplish tasks.
