    I have been working at Columbia College of Missouri full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are still several benefits intact with Columbia College but due to the recent (last year to year and one half) changes within upper Administration there are innumerable changes and what used to be a solid and "safe" place of employment has become somewhat unsure.

    Cons

    Too many changes and not enough stability for employees that have been with the instition for a length of time

    Advice to Management

    People are important, they are not a commodity

    Pros

    Some flexibility with course, admins were nice when you could meet with them.

    Cons

    Disruptive students, no choice of text, admin was often unavailable or would take too long to respond on an issue, online evaluations encourage only upset students to respond.

    Advice to Management

    Students are not customers; do not treat them as if they are. The program seemed disorganized and geared towards pandering to students, rather than actual education, and the amount of work I did for the pay I got was laughable. Take care of your staff.


  6. Family Feeling

    great insurance plans and prices, very great atmosphere, student centered environment, faculty seem to really care about the students they teach

    Cons

    lack of upward mobility, very rigid organizational structure, pay scale not on par with other colleges and universities in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Consider livening up the atmosphere

    I have been working at Columbia College of Missouri full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Learning on the job and the ability to try new things. -New president has a good vision and the outlook of the college looks bright. -Fun work environment with good people that are very talented.

    Cons

    -A lot of red tape to cut through when getting things approved in the upper levels of management. -The industry is losing money fast, so some benefits could be stripped as budgets are tightened. -Reorganization of many departments has caused some uneasiness around the college. A lot of things change here on a yearly basis, so it's hard to feel consistent with your job duties.

    Advice to Management

    -Keep the great culture of Columbia College going and good things will happen.

    I have been working at Columbia College of Missouri full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working here is nice because it feels like an extended family. There is ample opportunity for professional growth and there are celebrations for staff that include meals and recognition.

    Cons

    The health insurance benefits are expensive and coupled with the low range for salaries here, many workers are actually paid below the poverty line. Poor performance also seems to get rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Please seek alternatives to health insurance costs and look into increasing salaries as much as possible. Thanks.

    I have been working at Columbia College of Missouri full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are great. Healthcare and gym privileges along with 75-100% tuition coverage including day, evening, online and masters degrees!

    Cons

    Because this is higher education position, there is not a lot of money to go around for the hourly staff.

    Pros

    Good benfits, Nice hours, 403B, some coworkers are amazing

    Cons

    Pay is the worse! Very clicky If you're not in the "popular crowd" you will never go anywhere. Mgmt plays favorites.

    Advice to Management

    More consistency, if you set rules for one person you must set them for everyone. You shouldnt change rules as it suits your needs for that moment.
