The life of an adjunct is a thankless one
Lecturer (Current Employee), San Diego, CANovember 5, 2013
Pros: really make an impact
Cons: pay, benefits, job security
No one would teach if they didn't love it. The pay and benefits are bad and the job security is close to non-existent. But the professional atmosphere is good and the opportunity to help students is priceless.

Great School
Adjunct Radiography Instructor (Current Employee), San Diego, CAAugust 3, 2013
Pros: freedom in the classroom to instruct with the style i like
Cons: not paying me what i'm worth according to their own scale of experience
I'm only adjunct here, but I have been treated very well by administration and they do not micromanage... in fact, they encourage instructors to utilize their own unique assets to help the students learn instead of trying to fit your performance and student experience in a box. The program I teach for has a 100% success rate, so students are getting – more... an excellent education.

The only con is the district's insistence on the instructor verifying work experience by hunting down letters of employment dates from ALL prior employers to get anything other than starting salary. I'm not getting paid what I'm worth because I have experienced difficulty getting this information from previous employer HR departments (or their third-party representatives in India who charge a fee for this information). I've never heard of a company doing this, especially if the employee can provide tax records to prove dates of employment and salary... kind of ridiculous if you ask me. It's the only reason I refuse to work here full-time. Unfortunately, my immediate supervisor has zero control over this. – less
