      Pros

      Flexibility Aesthetically pleasing and clean campus/offices Great Professors and students

      Cons

      Higher-ups (supervisors, managers, senior management, directors) lack accountability shrug it off as misunderstandings It's more about the money/numbers than quality of education for the higher-ups Protocols, Employee Handbook, and "online trainings" mean nothing as long as we get in the numbers and higher-ups are happy. Some even work overtime WITHOUT overtime pay believing it's part of the job because any form of discussion about it is considered as being not compliant Culture and value talks are only for show. They are not actively practiced within certain teams Unfair work distribution within the team

      Pros

      1. They work with your schedule. 2. As an adjunct you have an opportunity to teach from 1 to however many clinicals you'd like. 3. If you can't teach a term for whatever reason they'll work with you and you can sit out that term. 4. Coworkers in this department are friendly and will extend a helping hand when need be.

      Cons

      1. Disorganized, lack of solid leadership. 2. Not enough staff to help out with student issues and overall paperwork. 3. Holidays are not paid for adjunct, you miss out on weeks of pay if you're not full time. 4. No raises... ? I wasn't very clear as to if and when this would ever happen.

      Pros

      Basic perks like health insurance, 401K, and travel funds. They buy as many items as you need for science labs teaching.

      Cons

      They want you to take a student who has no knowledge at all and transform this student into an excellent nurse. They rather blame you as the instructor than understanding that allowing anyone in this school without a GPA is the root of their problems. Some students manage to follow your instructions and succeed, but many others have no background in science, and this school wants to put them into advanced sciences without giving them first a remedial course to ease the students into the advanced materials in science. Some deans here are very laid back and you never see them, and others are so extreme that they put their instructors in awkward positions in favor of the students, even if a student is super lazy. In other occasions they bully their students to stay in school even if they have no money and live in their cars. The expectations of this school in regards their instructors to teach their students are unrealistic. They ignore your advice as an instructor with regards the needs of the students in order for them to do better. This quickly became a toxic environment and they have favorites. Some instructors earn more than others even if they have the same degree. If an instructor earns a scholarship, they keep the money for themselves. And they will let you go for no reason when they no longer need you.
