    I have been working at Santa Barbara City College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having the ability to create your own hours that you are able to tutor was amazing, it worked very well with my school schedule and when no one would come in I'd work on my own assignments.

    Cons

    Students not coming in was common

    I have been working at Santa Barbara City College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits to die for. Some great colleagues. Good hours.

    Cons

    Restructuring = insane workload (this takes a health toll)

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking that students are the only ones who count. Realize that happy employees are naturally helpful employees. Don't try to cut employees while increasing terms. Get cognizant of the fact that less time to do the "catch up" responsibilities will and does result in sick employees and far more mistakes. Take time to realize that your cheerleading does not make us work harder nor increase pleasure in being there; more money for classified--who work so very hard and get no financial recognition--would be notable and, sadly, unusual. Bring classified into the reorg; they KNOW what it takes, what it would mean, and why. Your secrecy only causes resentment and gossip and does nothing to help you move in a positive direction.

    I worked at Santa Barbara City College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Student centered institution, satisfying work, paid sick leave for part time employees, education training, small class sizes

    Cons

    One on one tutoring requires lots of unpaid time tracking students down, skills required to move through English department assumed and not taught -harmful to international students and local students, who grew up with non-standard dialects

    Advice to Management

    Provide more oppertunities for highly qualified community members to mentor students one on one. Teach grammar.
