Good Experience

Mathematics Tutor (Former Employee)
Takoma Park, MD

I worked at Montgomery College part-time for more than a year

ProsI was a student employee, so I had a very flexible schedule. Additionally, one really good and exciting thing about working in that kind of environment is the easy access to professors.

ConsA better salary or incentives will make that job a perfect one for students.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is impeccable; however, the need of more Tutors in Statistics is crucial.

Very good

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Montgomery College

ProsGood salary, excellent benefits. No dress code.

ConsSome managers are not very good managers. It is hard to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay for performance needs to take place. There are a lot of people that get paid the same thing for not doing as much as others in the same position.

Great place to work for high school graduates working towards a Bachelor's.

Administrative Aide (Current Employee)
Rockville, MD

I have been working at Montgomery College

ProsThe best benefit at Montgomery College is the free tuition for employees. While youi can only get units for the first 2 years of a Bachelor's degree, the College will pay for 6 units at most Maryland 4-year colleges too. There's also a generous annual allotment for professional development.

ConsNot much downside if you're in a support position. There is a lot of politics at the managerial level and above. But if you keep your head down and just do your work properly, this is a great place to start a career and pay less out-of-pocket for your college education.

Advice to Senior ManagementI don't think there is any way to tell the management to stop politicking and just do their jobs. There are a lot of great leaders at all levels, but it's the few people in position who crave power and glory who poison the atmosphere for everyone else. There should be an evaluation of management done by those who work under them.
