    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

  6. 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.

  7. Good pay for rural mountain location.
