    I have been working at Temple University part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some students are great.

    Cons

    Students are very underprepared for a real academic environment. No intellectual culture in certain departments. Curricula more for high school level than college. No job security. Low pay. No training. Adjuncts are evaluated by student feedback forms only, not faculty or peer evaluations. Incentives to inflate grades and suck up to students - as opposed to offering a real intellectual experience. Creates weird... power structure. Sloppy HR practices. Sketchy communication. Stay away and work for another school.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying on adjuncts, denying them office space, and then offering them "pods" to meet students in. The whole thing is kind of pathetic. Invest in hiring people for the long term, building a community. Try to act in good faith. It is the least you can do for people who are working below minimum wage. Students have expressed they feel they are wasting their money,
