    I worked at Central Piedmont Community College full-time

    Pros

    It was rewarding working in higher education and helping people make a better life for themselves. The atmosphere allowed for hard work while balancing family life. People were nice and truly cared about the mission of the organization.

    Politics are pretty heavy and it is hard to get some things done with such a large organization.

    Pros

    The thing that makes CPCC unique is the connected community of educators and students.

    The compensation and benefits do not compete with market. The state continues to under-fund education and it has become a struggle to retain the best people.

    Pros

    I loved teaching. Easy to get along with almost everybody. Students were often engaging and thoughtful.

    Cons

    Department failed to back me on a student's grade. Caved when a student demanded extra points without merit.

    Challenge your Division Directors to improve the quality of their programs.

    Pros

    Working in the IT department is a great opportunity for those interested in the IT career. It is also easy to climb the rankings however, the higher you go the harder it becomes to climb.

    Cons

    If you are given a technician job be sure to work, work and work. The calls almost never stop.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to help those who are smart and confident in their jobs. Utilize their talent to better the help desk.
