    Pros

    It is a decent starting point to get into the military education world. The leave/paid time off is great with a 2-week holiday break, 1-week spring break, and federal holidays on top of accrued leave. The coworkers are generally great when you do get to interact, which is rare as all the Pacific sites are spread out. The work is very independent.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, especially when compared to the other schools on base. It is very clear that employees are dispensable to HQ. They continue to expect more and more from staff and the blame is always placed on the field staff for the enrollment numbers. CTC's contracted programs are the problem, not the field advisors. There seems to be a complete disconnect between the overseas sites and the main campus with communication unclear and policy being formulated on the go.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your staff better. If you want to keep the good people around, you'll have to pay them more or they will absolutely move on to bigger and much better things.

    Pros

    Best benefits package in the area plus amazing paid vacation time! Would be the reason why people stay so long :) And if you are comfortable working for $2-5k per month teaching then this is an amazing place to work!

    Cons

    Salaries are no longer competitive for Staff unless you are Faculty. They pay low staff wages with no room for growth. But if you are comfortable working for $10 per hour for a long time, then this is a nice comfy cozy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Raise staff wages to their worth! Some employees who have no degree get paid more than people with degrees and experience! This is only because you get a raise every year...so the longer you work here, the more you make...eventually. But if you don't ever progress in your job and do the same thing over and over, its unfair to those who better themselves with education and training. Give raises to those who obtain degrees. After all, this is an educational institution. Shouldn't you promote getting an education?

    Pros

    Flexible hours-
    Nice additional money if there is enough students
    You have a good amount of freedom to instruct the classroom the way you want to
    Great for entry level teaching experience

    Cons

    If you're teaching an unpopular subject, it might not be worth your time. Classes will be cancelled or you'll be teaching a very small classroom which translates into less money.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

  7. A good place to get experience but hard to move up and BEWARE of those who has been there over 10+ yrs

    Pros

    A good place to get experience especially if you are fresh into the workplace, good employee benefits, holiday breaks off along with Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, and Springbreak, develop good friendships with coworkers.

    Cons

    Bad management, poor organization, poor pay and the tendency to get overworked.

    Advice to Management

    All employees matter and should be respected & trained at the best. Stop the office politics and gossip. Step up better in the training department for positions you are hiring for. Offer better pay especially for those who tends to get overworked and catch the slack/heat of things that no one wants to deal with.

    Pros

    If you like a great deal of (unpaid) time off, CTC can make that happen for you as a part-time employee.

    Cons

    Certain deans and professors seem to think they are working at a more prestigious institution and will openly treat non-teaching staff like children or servants, all while constantly mentioning how lucky this school is to have their skills and PhD.
    Part time employees are limited to 19.5 hours weekly in order to avoid having to pay benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation to the aides and assistants, fire dead weight secretaries and administrative workers, and revamp your hiring process.

  9. My experience working at Central Texas College was brief but good. I would recommend this job for students.

    Pros

    decent pay, supervisor that cares, very flexible schedule for my particular job, friendly environment, ability to show creativity, most students were pleasant

    Cons

    no room for advancement or benefits since it is a work study job, dealing with some unpleasant students proved a little stressful but overall manageable

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, this is an overall great place to work

  10. Good place to work so far

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, free tuition, access to some of the best 2 year programs in the state. Good retirement package. Chancellor is actively striving for change and a nice guy that cares about students.

    Cons

    Low pay in most departments, Good 'ol boys attitude, stuck in the stone age. Some areas have excellent leadership, some very poor leadership. Working on changing it but change is painful.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership training, communication with subordinates and anti-bulling classes need to be held.
