I worked at Palm Beach State College part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Clean, safe,helpful work environment. Professors are very caring and helpful.

Cons

There is a poor ratio of full time professors versus Adjunct instructors. 60% of college are adjunct employees. HR department responds to job inquiries very slowly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to evaluate the efficiency of there HR employees. Disability accomodations not provided to all employees, however the school was very good about providing these accomodations to students. Diversity in employees not well represented in there full time professors.

    Pros

    If you are full-time, the benefits and pay are very good. The college is a good one, but this campus is horribly managed. Besides management, the people and students at this campus are great.

    Cons

    Just be careful because management is petty and bureaucratic. Very frustrating, but hopefully it could improve. You will be evaluated in a negative way no matter how good a job you think you are doing. Make sure to keep written evidence of your performance or you will be crucified. Written evidence and numbers proving your worth are the main factor in performance reviews. The campus is in the middle of nowhere so most likely you will have a long commute. Communication and planning is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Basic skills in managing and communicating with people would be helpful. Avoiding confrontation at all costs is very ineffective. Respecting all staff could go a long way. Stop coasting and protecting yourself so that you can make it to retirement and have a little more pride in your work. Overall to management: you get back what you give. Respect and committ to every employee would go a long way too.
