Assistant Professor (Former Employee) – Lawrenceville, GA – March 31, 2015
It has a beautiful campus, but professionally is not good. In addition, the pay is very low. Since it is an "open access" institution, most of the students expect their teachers to give them the grade. The students in general put a minimum effort to learn. In the upper level courses, for example, some of them turn papers that are not even at the high school level.
The work is highly demanding: teaching four classes with three preparations (or sometimes two) every semester, in addition to participate both in discipline and college-wide committees, plus mentoring (an average of 30 students), and work closely with students on individual projects (including panels and paper presentations at conferences). There is nothing wrong with this huge amount of work; the problem is that the economic compensation (pay) is very law. A high school teacher makes more than any of the teachers in the social sciences at this college (Georgia Gwinnett College).
Very law compensation for the amount of work. Bad management; students (in general) not committed;
