    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking at the way the employees are being treated by managers. If you receive complaints from people saying they were screamed at and degraded as well as others backing up their claims, you have a serious problem on your hands. Most employees are looking for ways to post out of their departments and into others.

    I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia

    Pros

    Huge student body across an age/abilities spectrum including a large and highly motivated immigrant population along with significant numbers of part time continuing ed professionals seeking career advancement training. If you can teach to this widely varied population then YOU CAN TEACH ANYWHERE!

    Cons

    College is poorly funded by a bloated city government and main campus is located in a high crime area. Administrators are largely pencil pushing bureaucrats with extremely poor people skills who spend most of their time hiding in their offices so no one will notice their incompetence and lack of knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should immediately take some of the college's own courses in psychology, sociology, and elementary business management. Middle echelon management consists largely of fairly knowledgeable and motivated faculty whose advice is largely ignored by the imbeciles flying the plane. These folks should immediately return to the classroom where they'll be more appreciated and better utilized.
