    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get plenty of time off.
    Newer equipment (when it works, but good luck getting help from IT)

    Cons

    The President does not have much control on his underlings
    They continuously try to re-invent the wheel with lackluster results
    Knee-jerk reactions to everything
    They allow anyone and everyone to attend. If a student can sign a financial aid form, they can attend

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Then the herd a bit and find VPs that work better together for the greater good of the school and not individual gains.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I will say the vast majority of the people I worked with were great. The students were great to work with and most were enthusiastic about their education. Faculty outside my department were easy to work with and communicate with. There is a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement on the campus for its mission and goals.

    Cons

    The area I worked in was not very supportive of family, children, or single parents. Communication from further up the chain of command was slow to travel to others. Where the department I worked in was going, what the plans were for getting there, how I fit into those plans, and communication on my performance were highly lacking. Upper management left no recourse for filing grievances or seeing anything done to resolve issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support those with children. Understand they may be the only caretaker available. Younger children are more prone to illness when in daycare. Communicate plans for your departments and how those working there fit into these plans.

    Positive Outlook
