    I worked at Cogswell Polytech part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Laid back, relaxing environment. Work was reasonable to do.

    Cons

    There was a little too much down time and not enough discipline for other workers who weren't doing their job correctly.

    I worked at Cogswell Polytech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the students are well-meaning, talented, hard working, creative and pleasant to be around. There are some dedicated and hard working faculty as well.

    Cons

    Machiavellian management pits faculty against each other, steal ideas and redistributes credits as a form of control. There are some very unethical methods used to recruit students.

    I worked at Cogswell Polytech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very creative students. Very low compensation. Big parking lot and lots of room. Close to highway access. Some of the faculty are super special people. Terrific at arts.

    Cons

    Lack of senior management but this was ten years ago not today. Technology part was quite weak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less politics and more quality. Care more about the students. Have a consistent vision and follow it through.

    Pros

    As a student worker they always were flexible with hours, allowing you to schedule time in between classes.

    Cons

    Sometimes different admission staff will give you contradictory instructions, and you have to figure out whose to follow.
