Great Employer

Career Specialist (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

Prosmanagement is supportive, great benefits and pay, good place to work if you want to teach or help people, they encourage professional development; strong union- job security (it is almost impossible to get fired if you have been around for a while)

ConsIt is hard to move up within the college if you do not have previous management experience, there are more opportunities for lateral moves; it is so big, sometimes it can get a bit bureaucratic - for example, it takes for ever to hire someone because of the lengthy HR process; because people do not get fired, some "long timers" are not as motivated as new hires are; it may be hard to get in - many staff work as part-time and temporary before getting full -time position

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more opportunities for staff to move within the college, especially between general fund and grant funded positions

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
