    I worked at Metropolitan Community College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They had the best benefits anywhere. If I needed to leave for an appt. or emergency, all I had to do was work it out with my supervisor. I never had a problem with this. No one was looking over my shoulder. The students were my evaluated me. They had a certain number of training hours you had to complete during the year. It was reasonable and very helpful.

    Cons

    None. I loved working there. I wish I could teach online. I resign to leave due to a disability years ago. I have never gone a day without missing my best job ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe Metro gives internal promotions before giving it to the outside applicants. The leadership was excellent. Someone created a very intensive benefits brochure and the school values are those that I believe in wholehearterdly.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Community College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you are a student there is often a lot of time that you can do homework and still be on the clock with no problem.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get an answer about a raise. They do not want to give raises at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the service is of great benefits to students then you should consider doing more to keep talented people around.

    Pros

    Free tuition. Sick time and vacation.

    Cons

    They rely heavily on part time temps. It's very hard to become full time.

    Pros

    In a lot of ways class structure is quite flexible. You are more or less trusted with creating almost any lesson plan you want. Nice and informal.

    Cons

    There are lots of weird things that have to go through huge bureaucratic death loops in order to get ironed out or forgotten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel in my limited roll things are pretty good for a lumbering institution such as a school. The IT/backend is always in a state of chaos but tends to work OK when needed.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working for Darrel Meyer and Domenick Brouillette.

    Cons

    former contract employee

    I worked at Metropolitan Community College part-time

    Pros

    Metropolitan Community Colleges has a good work environment. Flexible schedules and good college atmosphere. Good teams depending on which department of work for.

    Cons

    Budget restrictions are leading several people to retire and be replaced with contract labor. Contract labor in the other hand is not as valued and respected as tenured employees - long term this will create an impact on morale.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Community College part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of downtime.
    Steady hours.
    Free software due to MSDNAA.

    Cons

    Limited to maximum of 1000 hours worked per year.
    No benefits at all.
    Downtime can get very boring at points.
    Students can have unreal expectations of what you are actually supposed to do in regards to their homework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This job is supposed to teach you troubleshooting and help desk skills, yet there is very little of that. We basically just babysit the computer labs day in and day out. We occasionally help students and faculty with minor issues and try to avoid being forced to do their homework for them.

    I have been working at Metropolitan Community College part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    All of my supervisors were very open and welcoming.

    No one there is any kind of discriminatory.

    My supervisors are very good about being straight forward when I'm doing something wrong, and also give many praises when I'm doing well.

    When I was having personal problems, they understood, listened, and were lenient enough to let me figure it all out. I was almost certain that I would be fired because of how much my issues were affecting my work ethic.

    Cons

    The pay could definitely be better, but I love my job and it's such a great experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on making us feel valued with a better compensation.
