    In some positions the pay scale is low. Sometimes the Administrative leadership is not completely connected with the workforce.

    Always try to stay connected with the workforce, because those are the people who make the greatest contributions to the excellent reputation of Lake Land College.

    Pros

    Good place to work for entry level experience within a college setting. 4 day work week in the summer and two weeks off at Christmas.

    Cons

    No room for advancement unless you are one of the "chosen ones". Most upper-level jobs that open up are already going to someone who has been picked out in advance. Most positions are filled from within. Often, management is not willing to listen to issues/concerns. Frequently turn a blind eye until the problem gets out of hand.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees.

    Pros

    It's a small feeling work environment. Some departments are better than others and mine is better than most. Most supervisors are understanding about personal needs for time off, etc. There is an abundance of paid time off such as, 4-day work weeks in the summer, 2 weeks at Christmas break, etc.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement, usually someone is already hand-picked for a job when it's posted, little or no diversity, insurance coverage is expensive and not very comprehensive, the pay is substandard, tuition reimbursement for bachelor's degree and above is limited to $600 per year.

    Advice to Management

    They need to work with existing employees on a career track. Make room for advancement from within for everyone who is interested.
