    I have been working at Moraine Valley Community College

    Pros

    Moraine offers the support, training, and flexibility I to be an effective instructor for my student.

    Cons

    None to speak of except I would love to be there full time.

    Family vibe, sort of....

    I have been working at Moraine Valley Community College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most everyone is welcoming and happy to be at the College. The vibe can feel almost like family. Many people actually talk about the work community as family, though some are not cut out to fit in to that family.

    Cons

    "South-side" mindset is stifling sometimes. The mission is to embrace diversity and be open-minded, yet many just play that lip service and continue to act with a narrow world view.

    I have been working at Moraine Valley Community College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good coworkers, many are like a family. Health benefits are the best I've ever had. Plenty of vacation time, and many holidays off.

    Cons

    Work/life balance not considered, no permission at all to work from home, many times too concerned with looking good to the public rather than doing good for the students, often ideas are not approved based on a failure of a single element many years prior. Enrollment declining, leading to budget cuts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider work from home scenarios. Not all jobs are equal in responsibility, and thus "fairness" should not be based on the work of a single area versus the responsibilities of another. Hold individuals accountable for their work/actions instead of shuffling them around to another area. Recognize the talents in your employees and let them do their jobs to help the college, rather than put them down based on some prior experience someone else had that didn't even understand the nature of the work.

    Cons

    It is humanly impossible to please everyone, so I am sure some people found some cons while working there, but I did not. I felt that the school had great direction and will continue to move in a great direction.
