    great employer

    Grounds Crew (Former Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsGreat work as a student, good pay (above Colorado minimum wage) and completely understanding of the need to occasionally change shifts etc.

    ConsI couldn't continue job in the summer after graduation which was frustrating since I spent all of senior year working on my thesis, and not so much searching for a post-graduation job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    CC has a great mission but is slow to change. Jill Tiefenthaler is a great leader.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsColorado College has great students, professors, and current administrative leadership. CC offers staff great amenities and the workload is very reasonable.

    ConsCC is very slow to change. Part of this has to do with shared governance with the faculty but CC also has a weird tendency to promote people within the administration who do not maintain a high level of professionalism. The administrative staff is bloated and some people don't seem used to working hard. There is very little opportunity for students to offer feedback on the administration's work and there is little accountability in some positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people who "get stuff done" and let go of the people who are unprofessional and stagnant in their roles.

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

    A hands on active learning experience that has prepared my for field work in all kinds of geology work.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsColorado College provided the chance to immerse yourself in learning that a school on the semester plan would have a hard time doing.

    ConsYou always feel like you need more time to learn all of the amazing things out there

    Fulfilling entry level job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat atmosphere with the opportunity to learn more than just the job basics. Supportive peers and flexible hours. The entire culture surrounding the Colorado College community is very progressive and intellectually stimulating.

    ConsThe facilities were slightly outdated and many files disorganized at the time of employement

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome (chemistry) facilities could use renovation and better work practices

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsI am quite excited by the prospect of working here for many more years! This company will let you stay after infractions that would have you fired anywhere else!

    Interesting place to work, but contributions are only valued in praise, not in compensation.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting location, always events happening, some very dedicated staff and faculty

    ConsNo room for advancement, no solid direction in some departments, lack of policies and enforcement

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust lead. Imagine why you would stay here if you were a dedicated, contributing employee.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good intentions, Poor execution.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsGreat retirement program, positive change is in the air, seeing directly how you impact students lives is powerful.

    ConsThe "Human Resources" department is anything but, Upper management needs to be more cognizant of what what their direct reports are doing and how they're treating their respective employees. Pay is below-average.

    Advice to Senior Management360 degree reviews would be helpful.

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