    Pros

    The faculty at Cuesta are amazing and dedicated professionals. They work hard to make sure students' needs are met and that they are up-to-date in their respective fields.

    Salary is OK for an adjunct position.

    Cons

    Management was much more worried about bottom line than education. Several times they mentioned that money was the issue to the college, neglecting the fact that opening more classes would have attracted more students, more tuition, and more state help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the goal of the college is to educate students and serve the community. Trust the faculty who are in the classroom. They know much more about what the school needs.

    Pros

    Cuesta College is a great place to work due to it's location and the community. There is strong community support for the college. The San Luis Obispo area is gorgeous!

    Cons

    Problems with hiring a good president and executive VPs. The president seems to have too much power and makes decisions independent of input from the lower downs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a good president. You have one in house....don't pass up the opportunity.
