I worked at Beacon College full-time

Pros

Time off, interaction with people. Trying to get students to stay in the school.

Cons

Elitist dictatorship that favored their own friends and family.
Didn't care enough about the type of students coming in.
Students who had been there since before they were accredited still there to bring down students who come in and those who can succeed.
Not enough for students to do while on downtime.
Reviews are a joke since the president did not even witness the work being done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop kicking out people for nepotism and friends that are not qualified.

    I worked at Beacon College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    38 hours work week, a lot of time off for, good benefits, discounted lunch, learn a lot from working with this population.

    Cons

    Silos, unclear leadership vision, challenging student population, leadership disconnected from employees and students, management required us to treat college students like elementary age kids and wake them up in their apartments if they didn't show up for class or appointments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the campus culture. Department leaders need to acknowledge their role in the silos and find ways to work with each other instead of against each other even if top leadership won't lead the staff.

    Pros

    Small college. Many employees deeply care about the college mission. Many students make great gains in their self-esteem and academic progress.

    Cons

    Many secret alliances and deals going on behind closed doors. Women are typically paid an average of $5k less per year for equal positions. Hiring and firing practices are typically very unregulated.
