Pros

I would say that the best thing about working at LWTC in this position would be the salary and benefits, parking.

Cons

Hostile work environment. No regular performance reviews and frequent firings. A "clique-like" atmosphere among the senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus your attention on improving the quality of education at LWTC.

    I worked at Lake Washington Institute of Technology full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are good; hours for staff are good; compensation is fairly good.

    Cons

    Office culture is backbiting; personal growth not encouraged; company values look good on paper but are self-serving in practice. Too much power in the hands of too few people. Inconsistent expectations; constantly shifting priorities. Terrible communication! People fired without reviews or reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the"Old Boys" and get some new blood with commitment to fairness and collaboration, progressive attitudes, and desire to develop community support.
