Pros

Maricopa Community Colleges have a large network of colleges and skill centers, so there is variety and ability to move around. The benefits are good, paid time off, professional development, state retirement among others

Cons

The organization as a whole is top heavy and also bows to faculty desires which isn't always best for business. It is a large organization so you need to learn the politics and procedures to initiate change. Also, each campus has a totally different working structure based upon the college president's personality, that isn't good for a cohesive system there are too many variables.

Advice to Management

Realize the value in the workforce in addition to the value of faculty - systems don't run themselves you need people

  1. Top heavy organization; too many managers who keep adding to employees' workloads without benefiting the organization.

    Pros

    Professional growth opportunities and tuition waivers for classes

    Cons

    Top heavy administration at most campus and District headquarters and bureaucratic processes that make it incredibly difficult to do anything creative in education.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding vice presidents, senior deans, deans, associate deans, etc. We have budget problems, and you keep adding more. What do all these people do? Are the *really* necessary to the organization?

    Pros

    Good student programs and service. Currently good people who would like to see things get better!

    Cons

    No pay increases for faculty, managers and staff for YEARS. Work contracts are changing so fast it will make your head spin. Horrible politics fueled by extremely low morale of employees. All employees are doing far more and making much less in compensation.

    Advice to Management

    The District needs to wake up before a mass exodus hits. Maybe they don't mind losing a large number of employees now that the real estate has improved. I really have no advice, as I've never seen a place fall apart so quickly on such a large scale. It's an awful shame.
