    I have been working at American Public University System part-time

    Pros

    Flexibility and working from home are the best benefits of this job. The students are engaging and interesting and are stationed all over the world. Of course, there is a range of ability and effort. My supervisors have always backed me up in plagiarism cases and they are quick to answer questions. There are useful professional development courses available to faculty.

    Cons

    Someone is financially benefiting, but it is not the instructors. There has been no pay raise in the 10 years I've been there. Full-timers seem overloaded by duties, and therefore course improvements are slow to take place.
