Career Development Intern (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 31, 2018
Sitting at a computer for long periods of time meeting with students and consulting about academic and career aspirations. The most enjoyable part of the job was the 180 success driven attitude that students took on after engaging with the office in any capacity.
Assistant Professor of Psychology (Former Employee) – Indiana – July 18, 2018
Ivy Tech has good benefits; however, there is a great disparity in pay across departments and recent versus older hires. Also, there exists a broad gender gap in pay with men making more than women. Ivy Tech tends to promote a business model applied to education, which creates issues with collaboration, knee-jerk changes without considering unintended consequences.
As a PhD, I can make significantly more money somewhere else and feel more valued. If you have other offers, consider them first.
Low Pay, Paternal Authoritative Management style, Not Valued by Adminstration
Disconnect between adjunct faculty and full time faculty
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Elkhart, IN – July 16, 2018
During my time at Ivy Tech, the college was undergoing many changes and restructuring. If I had not been in a second part-time role as an administrative assistant, I would never have known about nor been informed of the major changes going on.
The pay for adjunct faculty is very nice and is competitive with similar positions.
I loved the welcoming environment that I received as an admin assistant. I felt respected and useful, something that I lacked from my direct supervisor in my adjunct role.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – Sellersburg, IN – July 14, 2018
The majority of students were engaged and diligent about their studies. There is a very diverse collection of students in each class. I would recommend any Master's level graduate to investigate an adjunct position with Ivy Tech.
N/A (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 9, 2018
I have been working at Ivy Tech for almost 3 years and there is one thing I know to stay consistent, the employees are helpful to one another and nice to employees who are onboarding. There are a couple bad apples but every place has that, nowhere is perfect. I have enjoyed Ivy Tech but I think it is my time to find a change. My department is small and while I get along with everyone else, I feel like my department doesn't like me that much. It is a weird vibe...
Hopefully you do not fall into that situation. It is not fun.
Pto, Benefits, Week off over Chrismas break
Some employees are not friendly, hopefully you do not end up on a team like that!
ADJUNCT INSTRUCTOR (Current Employee) – Lafayette, IN – July 4, 2018
Management good. Workplace culture seems to be positive. The most enjoyable part of the job is teaching young minds. The hardest part is teaching online and not face to face. With that said, it's convenient to teach online.
TUTOR/LAB TECH (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – June 21, 2018
Working as a tutor for Ivy Tech Community College, provided a great way to gain some money to help with college as well continue my advancement of skills and knowledge. Ivy Tech Community College allowed for critical thinking on my behalf helping students solve problems or achieve the look for their projects. As well further my knowledge by learning knew ways to achieve a look in Adobe Programs.
Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 16, 2018
I worked this job while I was attending classes. One of my professors saw my passion for science and the quality of my work and offered me a position. I did not work overly long hours, but the experience I gained working in that lab, combined with what I learned in the classroom, helped propel me forward in my career and educational goals. I was able to work mostly autonomously and set my schedule around class time. If you have the opportunity or want some experience before working in the industry, I would highly recommend seeking part-time employment at the school.
