Pros

Pride in mission and students.

Cons

Pay is very low for support staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is very obvious that admin looks out for admin. They all stick together, so there is no upper management to go to if there is problems with a current supervisor.

    Pros

    Diverse customers, got to learn about other aspects of the college,
    fairly laid back, nice co-workers. First 2 years of employment I enjoyed and looked forward to working each day. Then many changes occurred and my trust and loyalty toward management diminished.

    Cons

    Pay, benefits, absolutely no communication within the department, part time employees are not treated at as part of 'the team'. Feel uninformed about new developments. Never know when supervisor will be at work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that part time employees are the cornerstone of the institution. And reward them better, with pay, bonuses or benefits. This college does not like to hire within the organization and does show favoritism towards the younger work group.

    The first few years were good, then the polotics really started to take hold.

    Pros

    You do good for people who need a boost in life

    Cons

    Hierarchy often gets in the way of people doing what's right. Too many politics to play between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to what made it such a great place to work for
