Great students, horrible administrative staff
Chemistry Lab Coordinator (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 30, 2017
As a full time faculty, I teach 3 lectures and labs (a total of 15 credits) each week to a class of 24 students per class. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the students. Being an urban campus, there was a large diverse population of students from various backgrounds, languages, and levels. I really enjoyed strategizing and developing new teaching methods that were able to reach beyond the norm. Mentoring honors students in their individual projects was also great. I enjoyed observing each student's curiosity and helping them plan and execute experiments to test out their hypothesis.
The institution as a whole is horrible and I would not recommend it to anyone. Communication amongst departments, deans, VPs and the President is non existent. Changes occur at the drop of a hat and at any moment during the semester, without explanations. It creates a non transparent workplace. The school as a whole advertises they are here for the students well being, however, they are more concerned about making money rather than student success.
Lots of time off, flexible work schedule
No advancement, slow paced, horrible management
