    Nice place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sherman, TX

    ProsNot many employees, so you get to know a large percentage of them.
    Students are very bright.
    Nice small campus - don't have to walk far from parking lot.
    Comfortable student center.
    Cheap area to live in.

    ConsSince it is so small, not many opportunities to do something else, unless you are faculty.
    Sherman is not a exciting place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.
    When are you ever going to get computerized class registration?!

    Passionate people but a lot of red tape

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sherman, TX

    Pros-Faculty are excellent, and working with students is marvelous.
    -Lots of opportunities for personal hobbies and interests.
    -Work is varied but not overly taxing day to day.

    Cons-Staff and faculty do not mix at all; they are treated as separate "classes."
    -Some departments are extremely poorly run and good luck to you if you end up in one of them. They are all talk and no fixing.
    -Moral can get very low.
    -Internal politics are an absolute mess.
    -Staff are underpaid and overworked. Insufficient precautions are taken during hazardous weather, forcing staff to come in (or take a day off) while faculty can cancel class. This has resulted in several broken bones/car accidents.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to lower-level employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Administrative Assistant at Austin College

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Sherman, TX

    ProsExcellent benefits for your children's tuition after two years of employment. Nice retirement package and decent health insurance benefits.

    ConsChanges are made without a full understanding of department needs and functions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease ask your employees input. The employees are the frontline of contact with customer/students and know what they ask for and understand workings with outside vendors.

    One of the best colleges at which to work... small, supportive, and understanding.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFor a college, it maintains an intimacy at all levels. The President knows each staffer by name; the vice presidents are all extremely professional.

    ConsLocated in Sherman, Texas, the only options are to live in the small community or to commute on North Central Expressway. Nice if you like small town life, but otherwise...

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere's a reason Austin College continues to be listed among best colleges at which to work: Keep it up!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
