    I really can't say there are any cons to being here.

    I have been working at South Suburban College part-time

    Pros

    Very rewarding helping to shape young adult lives. College gives tuition discounts to immediate family members and almost free to employees.

    Cons

    The enrollment seems to be steadily declining, so its not the most reliable part time position. The classes you expect to teach at any time may get dropped due to low enrollment.

    Advice to Management

    Market programs more. Upgrade facilities to match surrounding CC. Give students a real incentive to attend this college as opposed to going somewhere else.

    Pros

    The best reason for working there is that objective to aid student in achieving their goals.

    Cons

    The downside of working at SSC is that there aren't of enough students that realized how important as education is.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at South Suburban College (More than a year)

    Pros

    SSC mission impacts the lives of individuals, families by partnering with businesses, local government, and human service organizations in Chicago's south suburban communities.

    SSC students appreciate the learning opportunities that are available and affordable.

    Faculty and administration work closely together focusing on the success and welfare of the students

    Cons

    Variability in enrollment levels make it difficult to plan or schedule instructor loads much in advance of the start of each term.

    I worked at South Suburban College part-time

    Pros

    I was told ahead of time whether I would work from semester to semester. Sometimes classes were cancelled because of low enrollment. I worked in a smal department in the Oak Forest Campus. I loved working there. Everyone was respectful and polite to one another. I met some wonderful people. Because what I taught was somewhat of a speciality, politics did not rule. There were few adjuncts who could teach the classes in that field.

    Cons

    Mandatory union fees were deducted from my check.

    Advice to Management

    The attorney in charge of our department had too much going on to handle our department properly. I would like him to know that students suffer because of your business.

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

    Pros

    My current boss is great.

    Cons

    Upper managerment is poor and you have to be politically connected to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Get a college degree and some common sense.
