I worked at Lake Land College

Pros

Good place to work for entry level experience within a college setting. 4 day work week in the summer and two weeks off at Christmas.

Cons

No room for advancement unless you are one of the "chosen ones". Most upper-level jobs that open up are already going to someone who has been picked out in advance. Most positions are filled from within. Often, management is not willing to listen to issues/concerns. Frequently turn a blind eye until the problem gets out of hand.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to employees.

    I have been working at Lake Land College

    Pros

    It's a small feeling work environment. Some departments are better than others and mine is better than most. Most supervisors are understanding about personal needs for time off, etc. There is an abundance of paid time off such as, 4-day work weeks in the summer, 2 weeks at Christmas break, etc.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement, usually someone is already hand-picked for a job when it's posted, little or no diversity, insurance coverage is expensive and not very comprehensive, the pay is substandard, tuition reimbursement for bachelor's degree and above is limited to $600 per year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to work with existing employees on a career track. Make room for advancement from within for everyone who is interested.
