    I have been working at San Jacinto College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with some great people and it is a great opportunity if you are looking to work in higher education.

    Cons

    There is a lot of drama between departments and the hierarchy of how things are relayed to you is inconsistent and ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    If your leaders aren't engaged, your employees aren't engaged.

    I have been working at San Jacinto College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Chair assigns a mentor to new and adjunct faculty. The mentor provides concrete strategies for classroom management, curriculum design, and effective assessments. The mentor also shows you how to navigate the bureaucratic red tape that is university employment. Leadership is very supportive and it has been refreshing. Faculty and staff are great!

    Cons

    Some of the students have unrealistic expectations and/or not prepared for college work. That being said, that population is about 25% of the students. Someone has to retire to get a position. No one can have an adjunct role forever.

    Advice to Management

    I am very pleased with the environment so far...it has been an amazing experience.

    Pros

    Good benefits, fair pay, good leadership, excellent students

    Cons

    Weird corporate things like KPIs distract us from just doing our job well, and only getting paid 1/month is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Ease up on all the extra stuff you're asking faculty to do, it's driving good faculty away. It's great to offer training, but the KPI system doesn't make sense. No one in my department really knows how to fill these out, we are all guessing. It's not a great sign if our raises are tied to a system no one gets, it makes people assume you're only confusing us on purpose to justify giving us less of a raise.

    Also, PLEASE consider paying us more than once/month. No one else does this. Every professor complains about it.
