    Rewarding job helping students; Horrid politics internally though.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Flagstaff, AZ

    Pros-Coworkers (!)
    -Helping community/students
    -Hours
    -Benefits are very good for Flagstaff

    Cons-Demanding faculty who act like the students they teach (most have only had this job after college so they lack experience in the real world)
    -State/County budget issues result in short-staffed departments (most can only put out fires - there's no ability to plan because you're busy just keeping things afloat)
    -Cliques of faculty glom together to force changes they want, disregarding others' views
    -Administration doesn't have a clear picture of what's happening at the direct-student-contact-level
    -Managers (called "Directors") are all friends. They will not consider dissenting views from anyone lower than them.
    -Pigeon-holed into positions (several staff members can't move to other areas of the college b/c of personal opinions of their managers and/or because the manager doesn't want to lose the person, so they get stuck in a dead-end job)

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in the trenches and see how attitudes of administration and faculty impact employee morale and effectiveness.

    Be open to other opinions when making decisions, even if they conflict with the President's will.

    These 2 things might explain the nosebleed turnover

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Don't value their employees

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent salary, good people who work there.

    ConsAre not supportive or loyal to long-time staff and employees. Are ridiculously bureaucratic to the point that nothing gets done. President is disconnected from Flagstaff community and people who work under her.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecrease the amount of Directors and Mangers. It's top heavy.

    A Friendly place to work, a poor place to advance

    Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee)
    Flagstaff, AZ

    ProsCoconino Community College is a wonderful learning environment for students and good place to start a career, with faculty and staff lending help when needed.

    ConsCCC lacks the foresight in mentoring talent when its at hand and suppresses innovative thought when its displayed or attempted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementValue innovation and nurture talent within your staff, keep from focusing strictly on the bottom line even during economic downturns. Setting True obtainable goals always succeed over lofty good sounding goals.
