    Pros

    Very friendly coworkers and flexible schedule. Working for the college has been a great opportunity. There is always room to grow and improve and become a valued member of the staff to help deliver quality curriculum and service.

    Cons

    While the schedule is pretty flexible, sometimes extra work is needed. Other than that, there are not any other major cons I can think of.

    Pros

    Nice people, but the president of a college should at least have a doctorate degree.

    Cons

    Not open to suggestions. Upper management is secretive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff.

    Pros

    smaller employee base, good area pay, good raise/promotion rate, free school to employees, starting 401k, and insurance benefits after a year of employment.

    Cons

    Small growing companies experience quick changes and growing pains. Takes all employees to work through these.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a "Chain of Command" but it is not well followed. It is you go talk to them, instead of taking charge. Again, just a pro/con of small growing company

    Pros

    I feel like my boss respects me and values my work. My opinions matter and there's lots of potential for growth in the company. I have worked a few other jobs and in all the other locations I've been at i have always felt like a small piece in a big corporate puzzle but this is a family run business and here i feel like i make a difference.

    Cons

    This is a very fast moving company. If you don't enjoy a fast paced environment with lots of challenges and changes then this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. The most important thing to an employee is to feel like they are valued and respected.

    Pros

    A good place to work if you like flexibility.

    Cons

    Low pay, no benefits, not a lot of attention to detail by management, information and communication between management and staff is not that great at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people who work for you, they are the ones making things "go". Those of you "in charge" would be lost without your support staff, you have proven it time and time again by firing on a whim without proper cause and losing your temper. It is time to just let professionalism take its course and understand the people who are experts in their degree areas can run their classrooms, please, pay us more and give us due credit.
