    I worked at Portland Community College part-time (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 Management

    Keep a rein on the union


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