I have been working at College of Western Idaho full-time (more than 3 years)

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

    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.

    Pros

    CWI has a VERY GOOD atmosphere with the staff and faculty. We really do work together very well. Pay is okay, not the best, but okay. Many of us do know we are here for the students, and the students are most important to us. We also put out quality.

    Cons

    Sure some students have negative comments, but the success stories way out number any negatives. Sometimes it's the student, not the staff/faculty. There is a sense of entitlement with some of the younger students, and that goes for the entire U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with other companies in the area, as far as pay. Need positive feedback; HR stop training like "What type of animal personality are you?" Customer Service training must be continual for success and student satisfaction, but don't pound the workers on the phones....they looked wiped out sometimes!
