    Pros

    There was a wide variety of real world experience in this field. Great staff and got to work with many federal agencies.

    Cons

    Downsides are hard to think of because te internship was related to my degree an internship. It was during summer and I worked 8 hours a day but that's to be expected!

    Pros

    CMC offers a very supportive, positive and happy environment.

    Cons

    If you really care about delivering quality course instruction there is a lot of course preparation. However, you will only be paid for actual contact hours with students.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great if all professors could contribute the course syllabus and Canvas materials to a shared database that all professors could utilize. Since adjuncts can be isolated we often create our own Canvas courses from scratch or have to locate the person who last taught the course in order to ask for materials

    Pros

    Great location and a lot of really good people dedicated to providing high quality educational opportunities for the regional communities.
    Fairly solid and dependable funding enables high quality resources and staffing

    Cons

    Selection of unqualified President in 2010-2013 caused meltdown of morale and alienation of local communities - however recovery is in process and a return to positive morale and community connections has begun.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on and work hard to re-establish a solid relationship with the local communities; provide consistent investment in technology and re-establish effective leadership in that area to enable strategic leadership and innovative vision for improving teaching and learning.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, even for part-time

    Cons

    So hard to get promoted from part-time to full-time, unless you have a master's; so many politics which affect the hiring process; some really incompetent people at high levels

    Advice to Management

    You need to get rid of those high-level, incompetent employees who are holding the college back; learn to promote from within - recognize your good employees or you will lose them


  9. Good work life balance, a bit lacking in career growth

    I have been working at Colorado Mountain College

    Pros

    Most people work here because of the work life balance and flexibility and its one of the largest employers in the mountain community. Everyone gets 4 weeks of paid vacations from the start, with a week off at Christmas.

    Cons

    You really have to be a self driven person to be challenged here. Depending on the department you work in, your job stays pretty much the same day in and day out. You can forget about any kind of promotion from within, as people rarely retire and work well into thier twilight years. There is a severe lack of young blood in the organization, so the institution seems to get stuck in very old ways of doing things.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit young professionals and provide opportunities for advancement based on performance. There are too many warm bodies just collecting a paycheck.


  10. Good pay for rural mountain location.
