    I worked at Berkeley College full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent opportunities to grow from within. Support, resources and tools that allow you to succeed.

    Cons

    Family owned can be the only negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office culture does promote from within and the support is above the rest.

    I have been working at Berkeley College

    Pros

    Able to design your own curriculum within guidelines and choose your own methods of teaching. Flexible with filling requests for course materials .

    Cons

    As an Adjunct you do not get the sense of permanency. Not included in many of the company events etc. Not a whole lot of growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't assume that all adjuncts are teaching for extra dollars. Give more opportunities for advancement and personal growth.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Berkeley College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are great, the events are fun, food is always nearby

    Cons

    Pay sucks, expected to work 24/7, no bonus, late reviews, HR doesnt do anything to help the employee. Their polices are broken in their own interest whenever they want. Heads of departments know absolutely NOTHING. Benefits are too expensive, lie to students and can only find them jobs in the college itself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and protect the employee. Every year you guys get worse instead of getting better.

    Great family environment. Friendly and smart people working around you.

    The divisions are not communicating to each other. Sometimes upper management do their own things.

    Consider the opinions and situations of the people working in the company.

    Pros

    There is a family environment. Their goals are realistic and they always work toward keeping abreast with their technology and education. I enjoy working there.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges are that everything is a priority and extremely fast pasted so it times it can be hard to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should consider not raising tuition every year to make the college more affordable and competitive. Also, there should be more days off.

    Former Employee - Department Director

    I worked at Berkeley College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well funded and organized company. Many employees with long tenure and dedication to the school. Some genuinely great people work here. Competitive salary for solid work.

    Cons

    Very cliquish with a very political culture. High pressure for immediate results, but slow to implement real change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from traditional academia culture and adopt a more servant-leadership approach and you will garner respect and dedication ten-fold of what you have now.
