    ATC is a good place to work (if you like the status quo).

    I worked at Anoka Technical College

    Pros

    Open to new ideas & program improvements (though they are a bit resistant to change implementation). Great Benefits, Great Hours, Summers off (or additional work available for additional pay for summer courses). There are a lot of great people working there, who like to try new things & make improvements. The students were wonderful and there is a definite push for non-traditional students to attend, though administration was resistant to holding many evening & weekend courses. Top-down communication was often lacking and was being worked on when I left. ATC did achieve HLC accreditation while I was employed there. This is a great place to work for people who are not change- or improvement-motivated and are able to hold the status-quo without making waves.

    Cons

    This in the government sector, so it comes with all of the political & bureaucracy that that entails. Some of the frustrations I had were due to the constraints of the union. While the unions definitely affected the pay scales positively, they also help keep people who are not as competent on the job, which can be frustrating. There are also limited opportunities for pay for performance because of the unionized pay scales. Innovation & forward-thinking are not rewarded monetarily, though it is recognized by peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available and accessible to all people within the school. Create see-through management where there are little or few questions about the motives for decisions that are made.
