    I worked at Jamestown Community College part-time

    Pros

    Everyone is a true professional, at all staff levels (faculty, staff, and administration included). Everyone seems to teamwork very well together and share responsibilities as needed, and all know they are responsible for the face of this higher-ed institution.

    Many individuals go the extra mile to care for and support the students, and the staff who maintain the technology and physical infrastructure are always looking for ways to both do their own jobs better and to save the college's money and resources.

    Cons

    Both perceived and actual disconnect from central Jamestown administration; however, this did not affect daily job performance or outlook.

    I worked at Jamestown Community College as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    See above. Very education/quality focused, everyone very nice and easy to work with. Nice mix of those who'd been there a long time, and younger, new people. Very qualified and diverse group. I was a graphic designer there but I got to interact with staff, faculty and students.

    Cons

    Union school. I was part-time, 14 hrs a week, contract for 8 months (later extended). I was eligible for NO BENEFITS, but somehow, union dues were still greedily siphoned off my paychecks. No way to opt-out (trust me, I fought this and called MANY people to dispute this). Got to the union steward or whatever his title was, and even HE didn't like the union, he was just defaulted/grandfathered into the position. No one could tell me what my dues went toward, which is absolute thievery, since I could not get any benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the ridiculous union optional. Other than that, great place to work.

    I have been working at Jamestown Community College

    Pros

    Great collegial atmosphere, beautiful campus, supportive Deans,

    Cons

    For me the lack of tenured positions, often feel disrespected by full time faculty outside of my own department, unable to make a full contribution to the life of the college

    I worked at Jamestown Community College

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, very good about caring for students (many employees generally believe in and care for their work)

    Cons

    3 warring unions on campus stifle all competitiveness and advancement
