I worked at College of Western Idaho full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent compensation. Convient work hours. Some really great departments. Convenient locations. Paid twice a month.

Cons

Constantly changing. The departments are constantly being reorganized so you never know who you report to when there is a problem. Know one ever has any answers when you need them. Poor communication.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communication needs to be improved

    Pros

    some faculty are still hopeful

    Cons

    The president is the realization of the antagonist from, "Despicable Me." He truly is despicable in every essential and nuanced definition. The Board of Trustees, like the president, incapable of administering a functional institution. They have poured millions of poorly managed funds into projects and programs without a plan.
    It is truly unbelievable that a conservative community like Boise has let this nonsense go on as long as it has.
    Tried working there and had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Board of Trustees - resign
    President - retire

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at College of Western Idaho

    Pros

    The work has some intrinsic value.
    You actively add to a new College, ie. processes, culture
    The people you work with are great.
    The students are understanding and very helpful.
    The growth potential is exciting

    Cons

    This is a new school that is publicly funded. It is not established and lacks the ability to pay up to market wages.
    There is also a lack of resources, facilities and staffing.
    The lack of policies makes for a wild west atmosphere at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tough decisions are required and most understand the need for them. Keeping everyone informed would alleviate the constant uncertainty that most employees feel.
