Pros: advancement opportunity, professional development, technology, faculty and staff, and tutoring for students
Cons: adjuncts do not get benefits or bonuses
CSCC stays ahead of the game when it comes to technology, learning, and teaching. They have several workshops for teacher's professional development which assist the teacher's ability to be more productive in the classroom. There are ways for students to become involved and for students to get the most of of their education, including tutoring services. – more... The faculty and staff are friendly and professional. I have enjoyed working there, I have gained a wealth of knowledge, and I have been able to get involved with many communities.
The hardest part of the job is being an adjunct. It is not easy not having benefits nor having the ability to get discounted rates for insurance. We do not get the bonuses that staff are able to get, but the pay rate is fair and pays the bills. Although, there is the possiblity for advancement to full time work. With the Ohio requirement that a M.A. be in the subject area and not in my area of Education, it is not a quick option for me. Currently, I am planning to return to school, but that has to be worked into the budget.
Overall, Columbus State is a great place to work! – less
