I worked at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I will say the vast majority of the people I worked with were great. The students were great to work with and most were enthusiastic about their education. Faculty outside my department were easy to work with and communicate with. There is a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement on the campus for its mission and goals.

Cons

The area I worked in was not very supportive of family, children, or single parents. Communication from further up the chain of command was slow to travel to others. Where the department I worked in was going, what the plans were for getting there, how I fit into those plans, and communication on my performance were highly lacking. Upper management left no recourse for filing grievances or seeing anything done to resolve issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support those with children. Understand they may be the only caretaker available. Younger children are more prone to illness when in daycare. Communicate plans for your departments and how those working there fit into these plans.

    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexibility in work time
    Ability to make a career change if desired
    Tuition assistance for extending your education
    The college has a good core mission and values. They operate much like a start-up which is refreshing to see for a college where things can be beaten down by bureaucracy.

    Cons

    The salaries aren't what you'd make in any corporate setting
    Raises are few and far between unless you change titles
    The college is very new, so some procedures that you may be used to may not exist yet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up more training opportunities for employees. Don't be afraid to let your employees have more of a direct impact on the student population.
