    I worked at Lee College

    Pros

    Great environment, great people, and opportunities to teach your style!

    Cons

    Not enough classes, in many areas instructors are clique-ish, and departments do not mix much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More opportunities for adjuncts tho become full timers and more socializing among departments Shi they know each other.

    I have been working at Lee College full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lee College is a school that freely allows a teacher to implement learning strategies and practices with little, if any, interference from the administration. It is a faculty driven campus. Program creation and change depends only on a person's willingness to devote the time and effort to make it happen. Administrators do not tell faculty no, but rather encourage innovation and creativity. The school enjoys a wonderful reputation as a result of being faculty driven with faculty who, therefore can practice innovative and the successes and failures that are inherent for the uncertain pathway. I doubt there can be any better college for faculty job satisfaction than Lee College. The faculty of this school are awesome and way beyond what you would expect at any college, much less an ancient and small college in an industrial corridor.

    Cons

    Lee College does not produce enough income to fund curriculum development and projects. The entire load of curriculum is dumped on faculty as if curriculum development is a simple matter. Faculty ought to be dedicated to teaching by use of excellent methods and, although this faculty is up to the challenge in terms of teaching excellence, the lack of curriculum clerks results in less structure than ought to be the case. True, a lack of a curriculum generation group does allow complete teaching freedom, it also puts curriculum chores on the faculty which makes the job require longer hours than one might expect as a member of faculty. Freedom comes at a cost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administration is well advised to back off doing for the sake of doing and start being the administrative clerks they are hired to be. Management of Lee College is way too preoccupied achieving goals to make it appear they are busy. This management is rather new. This means they hired into a job working for a college that is a pacesetter of success in terms of academic and technical education. Sadly, instead of taking upfront time to review what leads to our success, the new managers simply set about revamping policies and procedures in order to have done something for their resume. Sadly again, these managers do not understand the adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. What would be brilliant? Take a great system, analyze success, then research ideas and practices to build upon success. So, while trying out ways to fix things that are not broken, they bring other administrators in who are unqualified to do a job. Lee College has inefficiencies in management. I do not want to fault Lee College as if it is unique. All education administrations attempt to mushroom admin growth which robs the income dollars from the point of need, students and faculty in the classroom.

    Lee College does not grow because of the Board of Regent's dull leadership in the community. A problem with Lee College is that its Board of Regents are rather dull in finding and following direction for the college to thrive. The Board is driven by a single person who is willing to be rude and brag about longevity to get accomplished personal outcomes that rarely are good for the college's need to grow. The Board ought to grow a backbone and, as well, invest the time necessary to do studies to see what the local economy is doing, while interfacing with the local government to see the plans for local growth.

    Pros

    Lee College is very professional. I had no problems at all while working there. I always worked with very courteous and helpful people.

    Cons

    A downside to working at Lee College is the area of Baytown in which it is located. The area is not the safest at night, although the Lee campus itself has security 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at all. Great place to work for.

    I have been working at Lee College full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work schedule of 4 days for faculty and 4-1/2 days for others

    Cons

    Academic environment is controlled tightly by unethical administrative practices. Diversity is not appreciated or practiced among all levels in spite of serving a diverse student population.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's unfortunate that "Several bad seeds spoil the whole grapevine" at this college.

    I have been working at Lee College

    Pros

    Best reasons to work here are the people you get to work with and the benefits are incredible--time off, flexibility, and stability of state employment (for now)...also, I high degree of satisfaction and some opportunities for travel/professional development...

    Cons

    No raises generally, due to state budget being tight. Older buildings, lack of office space, etc

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional and visable. Oftentimes it's not clear where directives are coming from--we can't blame everything on "the state"
