    Pros

    Honestly, this space right here would NOT fit all the things I found great about Edmonds Community College. Having both studied and worked at the college, I can say that Edmonds Community College has the following strong suits and values:
    - Great Work Environment and People
    - Organized Company Structure and Systems
    - Work/Life Balance, Travel Opportunities
    - Clear Vision, Mission and CORE Values
    - Clear teaching directions & committees
    - Great health care benefits and training
    - Career Advancement / Growth Opportunities
    - Great Payscale for almost every level at the college
    - Great 10-year / long-term plans and strategies
    - ...and so many more!!!

    Cons

    Edmonds Community College has expansive ways to grow according to its potentials...
    It has changed from being constructive to being more collaborative as an organization. Therefore, these changes have to be supported at every level and in every department at the college... Many efforts and investments have been done, however, there are still some many inefficient pipelines that can be reduced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am overall satisfied with my career and study journey spent at Edmonds Community College.

    The staff at the Career Action Center at Edmonds CC are the BEST to work with! Truly wonderful people.

    Pros

    I worked here under Work Study program. It was one of the best positions I have ever held in my professional career. It was so rewarding to help students get started in the worker retraining program and to see their progress quarter after quarter.

    Cons

    Not always enough to do. But on the other hand, being a student and working under the work study program, it allowed me time to work on my homework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the awesome work and support of student employees.

    Pros

    Get a chance to meet people, and help them with their studies.
    Get the opportunity to encourage students and monitor their progress in their classes.
    Get a chance to review materials from some classes, so that those materials are fresh at all times.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are limited students, so it is more time to commute for tutoring, than the actual pay.
    There are some students that don't want to try harder, which is demoralizing; especially because you do your best, and they just don't have any progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.

    A good start to my education and professional career

    Pros

    Very laid-back, easygoing work environment. My supervisor was very adapt at both running her department but not over-working or stepping on the staff.

    Cons

    Pay was low at the time, but it was part-time student work. I felt like there was no room for growth without first finishing my studies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No real advice here, everything seemed to run like a well-oiled, if large, machine.
