    I have been working at Edmonds Community College full-time

    Pros

    The Application Development Services team is very good. The network department is a work in progress.

    Cons

    Edmonds is a small college and the compensation is lower than other community colleges and much lower than the general IT industry.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be based on actual employee performance and contribution rather than just longevity.

    Pros

    good benefits, and they are nice people.

    Cons

    some of them are very picky, they don't give challenges to worker, if you know how to do it don't do it unless you have experience.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If your are currently a student at EdCC, there is little better you could do than tutor. I suggest tutoring the subject that you are interested in continuing your education for. Nothing helps you understand a subject like teaching it.

    Cons

    The role of the tutor is not always well defined - this is potentially problematic if a tutor is over-eager to help a student, or if the student is looking for an inappropriate level of assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Clear up the limits of what tutors can and cannot help with. Also, consider adding more group sessions as this can give people interested in education experience.

    Pros

    Very easy, relaxed, good benefits, (almost) free class, decent pay

    Cons

    No incentives so nobody wants to improve, everyone is complacent--you will become like this.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are not in control of any of my complaints, so I don't really have any advice to give


  7. Great people to work with, I enjoyed working there very much. Management was the best. A great learning experience.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great flexibility with scheduling, payroll was always on time and correct.. Knowing that I was a part of students success was very rewarding.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a permanent position due to the union. Lots of red tape. high turn over. you can end up feeling like a little fish in a big pond.

    Advice to Management

    Help employeeys understand ways to work around the red tape.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible and easy to schedule around your quarter classes, no pressure to work more hours than you can handle. Management is nice and easy to approach, no one will snap at you for getting sick last minute or lowering hours due to stress. Really great place.

    Cons

    Not so much Edmond's itself but coworkers aren't always the hardest working. I had to pick up the slack for other tutors a lot because they'd ignore the request board hoping someone else will take it up. Can't really report it and it makes the workload uneven at times. Not really a big con though, since I enjoyed talking with people and helping them out.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe be a bit more stern on lazy worker, because there are a few who will take advantage of the kindness of upper management.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing management, people, and everyone is passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee it's hard to know when/what classes you are teaching until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the younger generation and their ideas of making a department better.


  10. A good start to my education and professional career

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    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 Management

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


  11. Great Work-Life Balance

    Pros

    The job is easy, positive environment, great work balance. Lots of vacation time and I am free to use it whenever I want. That is Great!!

    Cons

    Procedures and computer software are antiquated. Circa 1988. They still have documents that need to be “typed”
