"meh" ... pros and cons

Professor, College Or University (Current Employee)

I have been working at San Jacinto College full-time for more than 3 years

Prosthe people I work with are very nice

Consghastly hours and low pay

Advice to Senior Managementwe professors are highly educated, highly skilled, and highly motivated ... why not help us do our work rather than interfere? ... just leave us alone to do our thing, we know what we are doing .... administration, please, get over yourselves - you are not the life-blood of the institution ... the students are the life-blood of the institution and it is we profs who are educating them ...remember that without profs there is no college

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Solid job with good learning opportunities, but poor advancement.

Endpoint Analyst (Tier II Tech Support) (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at San Jacinto College full-time for more than a year

ProsLearned a lot, no overtime, most of the time, and management was open for communication.

ConsThere is not a lot of job movement, unless you are a star performer.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore life-balancing perks to match those in other departments would be great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Students, Some Red Tape

Adjunct Professor (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at San Jacinto College part-time for less than a year

ProsThe students are pretty good for the Houston area. Blackboard is a great platform to use.

ConsAdministrative red tape, more so than at other local community colleges. Administration is not always helpful when setting up courses or getting things accomplished. You're on your own.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhy does everything need to be on paper when you've already got the information online?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Working for San Jacinto College

Senior Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at San Jacinto College full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, lots of paid time off due to college holiday schedules, Great co-workers

Conslow salary wages , poor management, paid only once a month

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation study needs to be done again. Instead of sitting in a boardroom making decesions regarding pay for people who work in certain departments but actaully sit them and see what a day is like in their shoes. Pay for Sr. Administrative Assistants is very low compared to other colleges and universities in the Houston TX area.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
