I worked at Essex County College full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
4-5 weeks vacation time each year.Cons
Why would anyone want to work at a place whose motto was “We have to do more with less.”
If you like clean working conditions, avoid this college, since often there were mice running around the offices.
Don’t bother asking for a salary increase if they say you’re doing a good job; apparently you’re supposed to be happy just with their praise.
A common mantra was “Don’t let the students do anything to embarrass us.”
For some reason they were always involved in lawsuits with businesses and students. What a waste of taxpayer money.
If you like being treated badly by incompetent administrators, then apply for a job at Essex. Low salary, no parking, cheapskate administrators, lousy managers, snobby professors. I feel bad for the students. It's hard to believe this place has remained open for so long. I would not recommened working here, even if you are unemployed; even if you are young and want experience. Keep looking, and find another place to work, if you are interested in a career in student affairs or higher education administration.
Upper level administrators talk behind employees' backs; if you have something to say to me, say it to my face. Especially if you're a man; be a man and say it to my face, instead of being a wuss and talking behind my back.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Go away and let some young talented people take over. Pay fair salaries to your workers. Have realistic expectations about what can and cannot be done.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
