    I have been working at Volunteer State Community College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working in an education environment such as this company is the best way to learn about many different areas and fields. Specifically in the IT department, employees learn to maintain tools that are used in any career field taught at the college. As a result the employees are prepared, much as the students are, to engage with other organizations outside of higher education. For younger employees starting off in the workforce, Volstate affords opportunities to develop their professional skills and allows them to grow. Benefits are offered from the State of Tennessee and offset the disappointment some may feel with salary at the college. The environment is laid back in many areas (depending upon the department head). Depending upon the department, there are many opportunities to work on projects that challenge the participants.

    Cons

    Depending on the job, work/life balance may be an issue. While the college encourages a healthy work/life balance, some jobs are designed to be on-call constantly. Some applicants may be disappointed with salary figures. Higher education in general pays less for staff than many corporate entities, and Volstate is no different. This is offset by excellent health insurance and other benefits. Being a state government entity (as Volstate is a state-run school) there are occasionally issues with bureaucracy and politics. Usually these are more annoying than dealbreaking, however.
