    I enjoyed my time working at the school. Got to meet important people within the school outside of the classroom.

    More openness, less entrenchment

    Adjunct (Current Employee)

    Poor top management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Rosemount, MN

    ProsLocation isn't bad if you live south of the river.
    Small environment allows staff to get to know each other well.
    If you get along with the right people you may be promoted rapidly and given a "director" title.

    ConsTop management has no leadership ability. Direction consists of saying "make it happen." The "director" title has been devalued. It used to be more meaningful, now there are "directors" for many little areas.
    Direction changes weekly depending on latest management magazine articles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSupport the good, professional staff--in good times and bad.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Dakota County Technical College-Ok to work there, for a while

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Rosemount, MN

    ProsStudents were the best thing about working here. Also there are many talented staff and faculty. Cutting edge programming. A little growth and innovation.

    ConsDespite many talented staff and faculty, leadership rarely recgonizes them, except for the favorites who go out of their way to "make headlines." Remember there are many more in the trenches to do much more, but never get credit. Also the leadership commonly takes credit for the labors of those below them. Little sense of community--too many cliques.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more credit to those who are involved in daily, constant student contact. If it were not for them, there would be no college.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
