Pros: a paycheck, health insurance
Cons: stress, no appreciation, lack of communication, no pay raise in 2 years (of course, the president got his!).
Staff members of the college are currently suffering under oppressive work conditions and managed by clueless, power-hungry administrators. A typical day is a day of stress, with high workload and no hope of relief (if you don't get it done, upper administrators say you're just being "inefficient"). A great group of dedicated employees keep plowing through and without each others' support, we would slowly fall apart; a better overall economy in the area would show a mass exodus of disgruntled employees and the majority of us are currently job hunting. Faculty have it a little better, though not much. Adjunct pay is fourth from the bottom in the state.
I am ashamed to be associated with this college and when others ask me about job openings, I tell them they would be better off working almost anywhere else. BTW--I have not put down my correct "start date" in order to protect my identity, though I have been here a good many years.
