Cons

So far, I haven't found any cons to working for Portland Community College

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My manager is very pleasant, but doesn't do any active supervising. I appreciate autonomy, but I also appreciate more feedback and involvement from management.

    I worked at Portland Community College part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    wide variety of positions, ability to change departments; good benefits; reasonable salaries for most positions. Working conditions are standard for office positions.

    Cons

    Politics are played. Many positions are filled by who you know, now what you know. Running afoul of the union can cause problems. Expansion and resources are decided for political benefit, not necessarily the benefit of students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a rein on the union

    For a large, public institution, it is a very pleasant place to work.
