I have been working at City Colleges of Chicago full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Able to get promoted and work in various departments. Good benefits and the salary is decent.

Cons

You can make more with our degree if you work in the private sector, but it helps for you to love what you do.

Advice to Management

Spending more time taking into consideration ideas and suggestions from those working more directly with the students in changing policies and procedures which would help expedite various processes.

    I have been working at City Colleges of Chicago part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The students are terrific and 98% very appreciative of our efforts, knowledge, and resources.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is crazy nonsensical. The amount of paperwork is crazy. To physically watch it get shredded a week later is gut-wrenching.

    Advice to Management

    Really. Come up with a plan to improve things, stick with it and quit modifying in mid-stream.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at City Colleges of Chicago full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great i.e. vacation, breaks in between Pay decent A sense of purpose because of the students that you serve

    Cons

    Policies are extremely laxed therefore employees do whatever they want without any consequences. Maintaining integrity is frowned upon. High turnover-mostly created by the bad decisions of senior management Limited to no opportunity for promotion.....need not apply only if we like you- hint hint

    Advice to Management

    Place the right people in the right positions not because of who you know but because they are qualified and intelligent enough to do the job. Continuity-having a strategic plan that makes sense and is logical. Decisions are often made in this environment without having a well thought out plan and employees and students often suffer behind it.
