    I worked at Lake Washington Institute of Technology full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are good; hours for staff are good; compensation is fairly good.

    Cons

    Office culture is backbiting; personal growth not encouraged; company values look good on paper but are self-serving in practice. Too much power in the hands of too few people. Inconsistent expectations; constantly shifting priorities. Terrible communication! People fired without reviews or reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the"Old Boys" and get some new blood with commitment to fairness and collaboration, progressive attitudes, and desire to develop community support.

    I have been working at Lake Washington Institute of Technology full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefit package is decent with good healthcare and education benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for employees. Constant undermining of efforts with lots of sneaky politics. Good o'l Boy club meets the Good o'l Girl club. If you are caught supporting the wrong camp - watch out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a less dysfunctional administration, quit the politics and get down to the work of promoting a great ideal.

    I worked at Lake Washington Institute of Technology

    Pros

    I would say that the best thing about working at LWTC in this position would be the salary and benefits, parking.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment. No regular performance reviews and frequent firings. A "clique-like" atmosphere among the senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus your attention on improving the quality of education at LWTC.
