Company Culture

There is a lot of cooperation. HOwever, only full time employees and tenured faculty are considered 'important people'.

Support from management

There is a lot of cooperation. HOwever, only full time employees and tenured faculty are considered 'important people'.

Teamwork

There is a separation of tenure vs non-tenured faculty & staff

Freedom to work independently

I more or less have autonomy in the classroom.

Internal Communication

I'm not sure what is going on across campus or in the admin offices.

Work-Life Balance

If I had fewer admin duties, i'd have more free time

Challenging Work

There's a lot of administrative stuff to do buyt the actually workload isn't bad

Suggestions for improvement

  • Update the buildings - the heating is barely adequate. I'd also give part-time employees yearly raises. I've been working for the same pay going on 4 years now.

What I like about the company

I enjoy interacting with the students.

What I dislike about the company

Not appreciating the part-time employees/instructors.
