    Pros

    Great benefits - medical, free tuition pension. The staff are generally professional and cooperative.

    Cons

    Budget cuts and an overzealous administration with their own agendas make the atmosphere tense and keeps morale low with staff. While many staff members are not happy with the current situation, many of us also remain hopeful that the future looks good.

    Advice to Management

    No point - "management" aka Administration does not listen to staff.

    IT leadership is the worst. CIO is disfunctional, no leadership skills and a mile wide and 1/2 inch deep.

    Pros

    Employee benefits are good like accumulating sick days and tuition waivers for spouse and children. It's a job. You can get promoted to another dept quickly especially if someone likes you better.

    Cons

    One of the worst places I have worked for in my entire 30 years of work history. This place is so backwards. Lack of formal job training for new employees is terrible. The only formal "training" you get from HR is how to use the phone, use Microsoft Outlook, sexual harassment and the standard HR policies every company has. The rest is basically up to you depending on your direct supervisor's personality. Depending on your position, your supervisor may take you around and have you meet people you will be working with in other depts or not depending on their management style, then after that, you have to figure alot of stuff out on your own and all while trying to help students answer their questions who need help themselves. The senior management is so far removed from the day to day activities of each department they have no clue how things operate and how their constant policy changes affect the employees. Many people I have met during my short stay her is that both employees and people who work with the college have the same opinion - how disorganized this place is. Do whatever you want is the philosophy on your job, but then someone will come back and tell you how you did it wrong. Working between depts is horrible, many errors and confusion between lots of people makes for a crappy place to work if you have to work with a lot of depts often.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together because this place is so disorganized. If you were a for profit company, you'd be out of business already.
