I enjoy teaching, and the students are wonderful. Being adjunct anywhere is difficult, and currently enrollment is down across the U.S. As a result there is no job security. It is a nice place to work.
Pros
Nice management
Cons
No benefits for adjuncts

It was a very laid back lace that was fun to work at. You meet a bunch of different people, have time to work on school work even while you're there and the hours are flexable!

Fun and great place to work. I loved getting to work with new students every day. If your department manager knows their stuff than it is really easy to get everything you need. However, if you aren't working in a "high" priority department than you will have little to no budget. The welding/machining department is severely underfunded
Pros
easy work day, fun environment, good pay
Cons
underfunded

Foreign students with no understanding of English were allowed to take--and pay for-- English classes for High School graduates. They did not understand anything the class was doing, could not participate. They were allowed to take the assignments home where someone else did the work perfectly. We were expected to accept these assignments and grade according to them and not to count any other factors such as quizzes, class discussions. Tests were taken home also. Complaining to my supervisor got me canned.
Pros
Employment
Cons
Expected to "pitch" for the classes

Ivy Tech Community College is a great place to work, productively, effectively, efficiently with state of art facilities, technologies, good management to employees relationship.Inspiring leadership, discretion degrees of freedom for lecturers and instructors to operate optimally with working monitoring and supervision devices in place for standards to be maintained and sustainable.On the other hand, prospects to have a full time employment for some shades of persons are seemingly nonexistent and general ratio full time to part time very low. Too many long term adjuncts appointments and no hope for full time career educator ambitions to be archived.

For my Department it is a mixture of registering students, pulling reports at times just to name a few. Casual dress. I enjoy the people I work with.

Great pay and benefits along with the ability to move up professionally or across different disciplines if you're looking for a career change. It's a large organization with plenty of room for movement. Plus, time off is really, really good.
Pros
Benefits, Pay, Time Off
Cons
Very little work/life balance

When you are in school it is fine as a part-time but its very political and hard to move up even when obtaining degrees. I really enjoyed my co-workers, we were like a family.

Great PT position, hard to get on FT. Good communication and caring direct supervisor. Structure is a little unorganized, hoping they will continue to make positive changes

For the most part, Ivy Tech is a nice place to work. You don't have to come to work sick. You are allowed flexibility to take time off when needed. The work-life balance is pretty good here. Also, coworkers are friendly. Now for the cons. The job can be stressful. Some of the students are the most difficult I have ever dealt with. I sometimes work alone in the office, which makes it more difficult.
Pros
Work-life balance, pretty good supervisor
Cons
Extremely irate students can cause anxiety

The pay for adjuncts are extremely low. No career advancements were available to me after working for the company for 7 years. My skills were not utilized at the college.

I loved teaching culinary at Ivy Tech. It was a dream come true for me. Then instructors with less experience and some that we my students replaced me. At first I was hurt and I didn’t understand and I still don’t know what happened but I accepted it and moved on.
Pros
Exceptional educational facility
Cons
Politics and inequality

It has been so had to work for a place that doesn't communicate procedures and plans down to the those of us that are in a face to face with the students. I feel the organization has chosen not to value and protect great employees.
Pros
Vacation time is the best I've ever seen
Cons
Management and organization!
