Memorable and challenging

As a faculty, the good thing about working there is they give me the freedom to manage my own class according to my own system of teaching but other things of course should be done accdg to the rules set by the school

Pros

Dont remember anything

Cons

Need to stay in the school for 8 hours everyday even if iam done teaching, the salary grade for associate prof 1 is only minimum salary equivalent to an entry level employee

Student-centered but not Pro-Teachers

PWU JASMS teaching pedagogy is ideal and progressive. It is true that they are students centered.However, they are not pro-teachers. Workload does not equate the salary. You are asked to work OT with no pay, "Para sa mga bata". Management is chaotic and not proactive making work more hard and stressful. They play favorites and would believe rumors. Instead of engaging in a conversation, they will do passive aggressive things to address it. Lastly, they don't listen to the teachers and engaging in a dialogue with the Admin is never welcome.Yet, there are a strong bond among the teachers. They help each other and would collaborate to make the work easy.

Loving and well grounded with the core value of the university

Extending my gratitude is an understatement as I highly treasure the trust PWU offers to its cohorts; a luxury not everyone enjoys in their school. I am more than lucky to be part of this institution. I always brag to all my colleagues from different universities how the system here really works and that teachers are very much valued. This is why it is never a pressure or stress to do things for this school. In fact, teachers here are always willing to do more, be more, and go beyond. I have been teaching in different universities in Metro Manila and none compare to PWU. Hence, let me thank my university for all the opportunities.

Its refreshing to work with students with high idealism.

Its culture is focused on the development of the men and women on a holistic approach. There seems to be much going on like volleyball matches, ping pong and swimming. The hardest part is the facilities are outdated yet they don't free dental and medical services for their employees. The student are well guided and placement for new graduates is what I've experience.

Pros

Discounts on tuition fees, Quality Education for children

Cons

Politics

Share your experience to help others

You may want to go and stay at the same time

The high school students are very friendly and respectful even though some of them came from different schools. You will meet different kinds of of students with different kinds of needs. In term of the faculty members, so far I experiences the best and not-so-worst batches; it still depends on how well you adapt with different people. If you are focused more on working and have no other things to worry about, this institution is gor yo.

Pros

Students, teaching and non-teaching staff

Cons

Work and life balance, low salary and no OT pay, slow-paced salary increase, less benefits

workmates and location

PWU is an ok institution, workmates are very flexible, its just the horrible traffic. Though a little support is given in research work, publication and scholarship.

Very pro student school

I have been a professor their for 8 years. The good side of being a faculty there is the freedom to teach and handle my class my way other than that, the school is rated below average in faculty mgmt, conflict mgmt, salary increase and promotion. The way they treat faculty is not proportional to the salary they are receiving.

I taught Biology to my Senior HighSchool Students and Ecology with my College students.

Philippine Womens University is my starting ground. Good Co Teachers and students are polite.The administration is also best in which they will inform and help you to do what you can't do. They gave salary on time and provide the necessary materials we need inside the classroom.

Family cultured institution

It was nice working here. Even if you will experience at times hardships and stress from a not so good management, it won't materialize that much because of your helpful colleagues.

Fun workplace

It was a good experience and because it was only a project base, we only work on weekends. Good people and they are professional in terms of work. The team was cooperative and hard working.

Disrespectful Gestures Upon Hiring Applicants

HR here are disrespectful, knowing that applicants are sitting and waiting for the interview, a lot of them are ego tripper, both gestures and how they talk. Is seems that they do not know the ethical responsibility of being HR team. They are not trained to be professional nor they do not know how to behave properly.

Cons

HR are power grabbers and ego trippers

Enjoyed teaching.

The facility was culture-sensitive. However, the management was not pro employees.The hardest part of being a teacher is to fail a student. But the most enjoyable part of teaching is when your students learn.

Pros

Helping students learn.

Cons

The management is not pro employee.

limited growth.

limited career growth as an intern, but it is unavoidable since I stayed at PWU for just a month and a half. I have been mostly exposed to compensation and recruitment. Also because I was an intern, there was no salary or benefits or sense of job security/advancement. Furthermore, I enjoyed being exposed to recruitment, as it gave me the chance to understand how handling applicants work, what answers can pique interest or throw one off as an interviewer while in a job interview.

Pros

good colleague relationship, recruitment experience, appreciation of school-setting environment

Cons

distance, sometimes job is too clerical or repetitive it becomes boring

Dealing with young people are very inspiring.

As a part time teacher, you need to balance your full time job and part time work. Being a teacher, you need to be prepared before facing your students. Since I am a full time worker, I manage time management and of course dedication and patience in my day to day endeavor are my weapons.
