    Pros

    We received fairly substantial raises. Although I think this had less to do with our worth as employees and more that the senior administration was shamed into giving us a boost in pay. I made lifelong friends there. Good work/life balance. They paid for some of my credits at UNM.

    Cons

    Senior leadership seems more concerned with projecting a certain image of CNM rather than actually doing anything substantial. Hence you have situations where students are being granted degrees without their consent or knowledge, ostensibly to boost CNM's matriculation rate. It's a very cynical move. Pay is not in line with the market, i.e. the pay is low. This is not unusual for New Mexico, but obviously something to consider. However, if you somehow make it into the senior administration, you will be paid handsomely. Salary-wise, it's a very top-heavy organization. It's nearly impossible to move up in your position. Unless you know someone. It's the New Mexico way! I was let go with no warning despite a spotless performance record. To make it worse, I was lied to as to why I was being let go. Someone had a personal problem with me, and rather than address it, they decided to give me the ax. In my opinion, it was very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    You wouldn't listen anyway, so why bother?

    Pros

    Stupid Easy, lots of downtime, great support for students and community.

    Cons

    Make a dollar more and hour than when I started. I made more working other jobs without a degree. Work in security and make the same pay! Nowhere to advance to.

    Pros

    Employees work together to achieve college goals. Everyone there truly cares about students and their success. Creativity, new ideas, and innovation are encouraged and rewarded. Employees are encouraged to seek out ways to improve processes so CNM is " best in class." There is a strong culture of trust and integrity.

    Cons

    As a public institution, government regulation can be slow to keep up with the college's innovative pace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your strong focus on CNM's strategic priorities!
