    Former Employee - Program Manager in Altamonte Springs, FL

    I worked at City College Florida full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I helped students to accomplish their goal by completing their degree and finding the job of their dream.

    Cons

    It was a difficult task as the student as any other students have great challenges with finances, family and other factor to help them complete their goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The students are your customer. They are the reason you are in business so make sure they are happy and you will be happy also.

    Former Employee - Desktop Support/Network Administrative in Miami, FL

    I worked at City College Florida full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Looking for a paycheck, employees stick together, free classes, foot into a field, hard-working lower level employees, nice facilities

    Cons

    Leadership doesn't lead; just dictates, President and director are all friends or spouses of each other, Elitist club of senior management that is spending students cash on high-tech BS instead of improving quality education. i.e. No less than 10 $6,300 SMARTboard that teachers don't even know how to use. No room for growth unless one of the people above you died or divorced one of the other Campus Directors. Top management uses this college as their personal piggybank. Former president died of alcoholism, so his wife runs the show now. Honestly, I'm not sure if they are just really good at hiding their acts, but I'm really surprised that this place hasn't been shut down for embezzling, fraud or other legal issues. I was not given any opportunities for advancement. I was promised before hiring that I would be given the opportunities to work on additional projects and learn new skills which never happened.

    For the record, I was a great employee, hard-working, never in trouble, positive attitude, bright and experienced, a bit too advanced for the work there. I ended up leaving for a much better paying job with higher earnings potential with a reputable and worldwide recognized company. This review only serves as a warning for others to just be careful and know what you are getting into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some leadership classes, Motivate instead of delegate, don't substitute former Marine Corps recruiter experience for ACTUAL training, make room for growth for employees, hire decent directors.
