    I have been working at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I like the people I work with at this time, it is a wonderful feeling when you know you have helped a student. Our students are working adults and for some it has been a long time since they were in school.

    Cons

    The main challenge is that they don't give job performance raises or raises of any kind no matter how hard you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice at least once to be recognized as a good employee even if there is no money involved.

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

    Pros

    I made some great friends while working here and was able to gain some skills to launch my professional career.

    Cons

    The management of this college is, and has been, atrocious. Employees have 0% faith in college leadership. I had 3 bosses in 4 years because they kept getting laid off. Middle level employees are doing all of the work and senoir level has nothing to offer. Also, widespread blatant pay disparities for the same position and qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a pay cut, take some continuing ed classes in Leadership.

    I worked at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you have worked all of your life but have never been to school than this is a great place for education as they work with you in developing the learning module to suit your needs.

    Cons

    If you don't have a niche than this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management cares but if they don't see you helping of yourself than you are left out; as another moves ahead. Chess players would do well with this environment.

    Pros

    Decent salary, some pretty amazing hard working staff, good health plan

    Cons

    Staff is unappreciated, not encouraged to grow, not allowed to advance. Requests made for safety of staff and students widely ignored. Concerns about threatening coworkers not followed up on. Abusive staff members kept on, despite repeated reports. Lack of open communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your staff to their strengths and acknowledge their successes. Learn about accommodating disabilities instead of stigmatizing staff and students. Make it worthwhile for your strongest, motivated workers to stay on instead of losing them to better organizations.

    I have been working at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) full-time

    Pros

    Academics are truly top notch, and at an affordable price considering the location.

    Cons

    Working for the college you begin to discover the many problems that plague Higher Ed. They are more amplified at Cambridge however, to the point where it is downright dysfunctional at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to bust the unions. Accept the fact that the college has 3 unions and look to support the mission of the college instead of focusing so much attention on breaking the unions, which in turn breaks the employees, staff, administrators and faculty!

    I worked at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many of the students start out highly self-motivated, but fade in time when they are not supported and have been squeezed for their last dollar. Students do not seem to know they are enrolled in a for-profit school, which is much more expensive than other schools in the area.

    Cons

    Students are seen as revenue sources, not as individuals striving to succeed; teaching is lousy; academic support available is limited. School of Education and School of Counseling & Psychology do a poor job of preparing students to be successful practitioners in their fields.
