      Pros

      Supervisors really invest time in making sure everyone is cared for and properly trained for the role.

      Cons

      Can be a lot to balance with study but supervisors always willing to work with you and figure something out.

      A Great Place to Teach/Work

      Jul 24, 2021 - Adjunct Professor in New York, NY

      Pros

      Colleagues & students are superior. Salary & benefits are not great, but better than most for adjuncts.

      Cons

      Grade inflation runs rampant. Privileged students expect A’s. Plus I've heard too many tales of parents calling to complain that their precious children are not getting what they paid for, although I have not experienced it myself. My favorites: student athletes & scholarship kids. They work hard and appreciate “coaching.”

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great benefits, 35-hour work week, mostly respectful of work/life balance

      Cons

      Excellent benefits try but fail to make up for the mediocre salaries paid to non-executive administrative staff who all have to live outside of Manhattan (unless their spouse has a high paying job) because we cannot afford rent on our salaries.
