    It's a community college, so there's that, but still some of my best memories where here.

    The facilities could be much better. I spent a lot time at Dennys because there was no 24 hour study location on campus.

    Pros

    People work well together; The college leadership seems to know what it's doing on a very very broad scale.

    Cons

    Too much politics sometimes; Business Areas stumble and step on each other's toes because of lack of concrete business processes; HR is dysfunctional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Draft concrete goals top down and define business processes for all areas so that every single employee knows what they are supposed to be doing and how everything flows together

    I worked at Long Beach City College

    Pros

    Depending on your department, the work atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed. Supervisors (library department) are considerate flexible when scheduling work hours. This is especially beneficial for working students.

    Cons

    Major budget cuts. Departments are short on money and understaffed. This leads to an increase work load and greater stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, leadership is competent. However, they can do better by improve by reducing bureaucracy, and providing better on the job training.

    Long hiring process and problematic management

    I worked at Long Beach City College

    Pros

    I loved the students at this campus and did have a great relationship with the director of my department and colleagues.

    Cons

    My direct supervisor did not have the education, skills, and maturity to be an effective leader. I have a masters degree and felt like I was working with/for someone still in high school. She would often gossip and blame our director for her own shortcomings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Though some staff have been loyal and have been grandfathered in, supervisors should possess an adequate level of education, training, good people skills, be organized, and have the ability to problem solve.
