New administration has cracked the once strong foundation of the campus community.

I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

At this time I see no pros. Used to be the people, the campus community.

Cons

The "one big family" feeling is gone. Working with fewer and fewer resources but expected to continue to grow and improve. Employees are burning out fast. Current administration is not transparent in decision making or implementation of changes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a wealth of experience and knowledge in your long time staff as well as ideas from existing and new staff. Listen to them and make sure you are really hearing them. Don't change just for changes sake. The foundation of trust and respect need to be rebuilt for the campus to grow and succeed.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Get a chance to meet people, and help them with their studies.
    Get the opportunity to encourage students and monitor their progress in their classes.
    Get a chance to review materials from some classes, so that those materials are fresh at all times.

    Cons

    Sometimes there are limited students, so it is more time to commute for tutoring, than the actual pay.
    There are some students that don't want to try harder, which is demoralizing; especially because you do your best, and they just don't have any progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to assign more students to the tutors. Make the hassle of going to the campus worthwhile.
