Fun classes, good instructors, terrible management
Adjunct faculty of Mathematics (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 26, 2014
Plenty of great interaction with other faculty and students. I strive to create an all-inclusive, diversity-oriented classroom "culture". Wonderful students for the most part that are thirsty for caring, solid, knowledgeable instructors that CARE about them and their success. However, because the college has suffered through a culture of fear, discrimination, and retribution, I have learned to be far more cautious and not voice my opinions or suggestions except to a few individuals that I personally trust in the college. Co-workers, faculty and staff are generally pleasant and very nice people to work with and I appreciate them a lot for all their support and services. However, dealing with so much corruption, fear, discrimination, lying, and politics at the administrative levels is very discouraging and depressing. Opportunities for advancement and/or being hired for permanent, full-time positions are very scarce and limited to who knows whom and to those that are considered "favorites" by the administrative staff. PCC is a great college, but does need an overhaul of top administrative personnel which also would be beneficial in lifting the college out of the probation placed by the Higher Learning Committee.
