    I have been working at Midlands Technical College as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is nice, depending on your level of education. Co-workers are very friendly and seem to enjoy what they do.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement. Competition for classes amongst adjunct faulty can be high, especially during the summer term when the number of classes offered decreases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, some of the best management I have ever encountered.

    Pros

    People, family atmosphere, challenge & they care about you. Talented hires make a great team of committed workforce and fine leadership that is in touch with what is going on. There is no greater mission than education especially in these challenging times

    Cons

    Big college so have to stay up on changes. Large business with several campuses make communication a challenge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Good people are key and staying up on current trends for good planning purposes. Keep the lines of communication open to be able to address any concerns or needs in the various areas.

    I have been working at Midlands Technical College

    Pros

    I've been given the opportunity to try new things. I've been given the opportunity to take chances and implement new processes. I can see the impact of my job on the day to day operations of the college. That means a lot to me.

    Cons

    It's state government. Things move slower and more deliberately than the private industry. Therefore, you've got to have patience - something I'm having to learn each day.

    I worked at Midlands Technical College

    Pros

    Pay was good. Location was great.

    Cons

    If this were a business and not a state funded technical college, it would have gone under a long time ago. Very inefficient business processes. Management is horrendous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to students complaints. Then use this as initiative to make positive changes via technology. I tried to do this, and was severely beaten down.
