    I have been working at Joliet Junior College

    Pros

    - Great salary and benefits (compared to the region, not for comparable colleges)
    - Good location for commuting
    - Lots of generally nice and well-meaning people

    Cons

    - Toxic and negative work environment.
    - Board is clearly dysfunctional, patronizing, negative, and publicly criticizes and shows no appreciation for admins on a regular basis (see the online videos)
    - HIghly politicized atmosphere. Those who are plugged into the Joliet political network get rewarded (a small group of 150 or so people who were born, raised, and continue to interact socially in Joliet). Those who are not plugged in get pushed our or are fired
    - High leadership turnover - no one lasts too long
    - Little to no job security
    - Very little student success and bad learning results - the college exists to satisfy various individual and constituent political agends, not help students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    JJC is a very challenging place to work and I would not recommend it. However, if all you care about is a paycheck and things like making a difference, having a purpose, working with teams, etc. don't matter to you, JJC would be a good fit.

    The college does not focus on their employees or their students, they seem to only worry about their reputation.
