    Pros

    Professional Development; Caring Instructional Coaches

    Cons

    You don't get to design your own course. Instructional designers create the course which leads to frustration on instructors' behalf. Instructors cannot be creative in the classroom to learning outcomes are met. Instructors must call absent students on a regular basis which is borderline harassment. Quarterly calls are boring and annoying. We use WebEx but still have to phone in and listen to the call. Background noises (trains, dog's barking, etc) interfere with the quality of the phone conference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give instructors permission to modify course content. Hire instructional designers who have a teaching background.

    I have been working at Harrison College full-time

    Pros

    Instructors are outgoing and friendly while you attending and it is an accredited school. Tuition for fulltime student is $4800 a quarter. Ivy Tech is in the ballpark of $360.00 per class!

    Cons

    Tuition is WAY TOO high compared to other colleges. And, these credits DO NOT transfer to other schools. Overall, it is not worth it. Go to IVY Tech. It is affordable and the education means more on paper.

    I have been working at Harrison College

    Pros

    The instructors were nice and the losses were small.

    Cons

    I was forced to take a lot of online classes. The last semester in clinicals we didn't have the help we were promised and they didn't prepare us for the aama exam Like they were suppose to. Now that I graduated I never get any help with job searching like they said I would.

    I have been working at Harrison College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very family oriented. With the prior President Ken Konesco, the mission of the company was family first. My direct managers have always been very accommodating and encouraging. I've had several roles due to promotions. The campus was very nice since it allowed a more home feeling.

    Cons

    Major lay offs within the company after I left due to relocating out of state. Just recently another layoff has been taken place and the majority of my good friends have been laid due to slow economic growth. Administration/Headquarters was more just a corporate job feel to it and didn't feel as valued as working with a campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop creating titles for unnecessary positions and then lay the position off in a couple of year. There are so many "Director of" positions that can all be condensed to one Regional position.

    Pros

    Good benefits and allows you to volunteer on a work day.

    Cons

    Poor pay compared to others in town, NO communication even between upper management, allows a lot of unethical behavior from employees as long as they produce results, and continue to higher upper management/ provosts but not those that work with the client daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop with all the reports, survey's and other items where the right questions are not asked. Instead of parties how about equipment that works and raises truly based on performance not the amount of money available or just be honest that the money is not available.

    Overall, it's a positive organization. They give you the freedom to do your job and contribute. I find management is very encouraging and open to ideas.

    Cons

    Not competitive enough with pay, and too many projects, meetings and reports.... geez. Focus more on the students!
