      Pros

      Independent work, without being so closely monitored that nothing gets done.

      Cons

      They take advantage of you in any way they can. When you get hired, they will lie to you about certain things and pass them off as if its the best they can offer. They either don't have enough money to support your hire, or they willfully put more work and pressure on you to be there and thrive. They completely deviate from the standard of working in academia. But the people there are friendly, helpful, and welcoming, though!

      Pros

      Great people. Friendly staff. Easy job and great work experience.

      Cons

      The whole school is mismanaged. It gets worse and worse every year and it makes it hard for the staff. Everyone is doing their best but the students are taken advantage of and they bring that frustration to the RSMs who are also students just doing their best. It’s a mess.

      Administration does NOT Appreciate Adjunct Faculty Members

      Mar 1, 2021 - Adjunct Faculty in Jamaica, NY

      Pros

      Terrific students and excellent university mission!

      Cons

      SJU Administration, College Deans, and Academic Advising Deans do NOT appreciate or recognize the hard work or dedication of adjunct faculty members. Adjuncts comprise a large percentage of the teaching staff at SJU. Most adjuncts teach because they are working professionals with specialized skill sets looking to give back. Others are looking to gain academic teaching experience toward getting a full-time position at an institution. Given how much we contribute to the University, how many of us use our technology to teach in the classroom, how low our pay is, coupled with the Administration's increasing bureaucratic demands, a simple "Thank You to Our Adjuncts Day" would go a long way; it at least it would be a start!
