    I have been working at Merced College

    Pros

    The health, dental, and retirement benefits and the generous vacation allowance (24 days for management, 12 or more for classified staff depending on time in) are wonderful. The pay is competitive for the area, especially for management.

    Cons

    The current administration is out of touch with reality. Their complacence has led to us being put on warning with our accreditation agency and it remains to be seen whether they will do what is necessary to ensure our continuing accreditation. The administration seems more concerned with covering their own hides, defending their territories, and preparing for their next jobs than they do in responsibly managing the college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit denying the problems we have and deal with them head on. Try to come up with real solutions and not vague "strategic plans" that have no meaning, no actionable goals, and only a tenuous connection to our current problems. Real solutions require thought and sweat, not buzz words.
