    I have been working at Palm Beach State College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great vacation during the year-- winter breaks and spring breaks are offered without having to use your own personal or vacation time. During Summer hours you have a 4 day work week (now 4.5 days). Great HMO offered for no cost to Full-time Exempt employee.

    Cons

    Many people just employed for a job and not student-focused. Low preforming employees are retained. Lack of awareness or focus on topics of diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR -- GET IT TOGETHER. Evaluate performance. Support your managers. Fire those who under perform. Stop being so afraid of lawsuits.

    Disappointing, very clickish, managment does not acknowledge original thinking and ideas or utilize common sense.

    I have been working at Palm Beach State College full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Look forward to spring break and Christmas breaks.

    Cons

    Management moves staff around or harrasses them in order to push them out of department or to leave college.
    Management supports management, but not employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave quality employees alone that are responsible and have an excellent work ethic and track record/ history. Keep an ear open to employee feedback from within the entire college to improve both personal and departmental management skills.

    Great opportunity for students to gain work experience but pay and opportunities at higher levels are slim.

    I have been working at Palm Beach State College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Affordable health care and generous holiday time. The majority of the staff and faculty are genuine and care about student success.

    Cons

    Apathy or resistance towards teamwork across departments. Many employees seem to be waiting out for retirement. There have been significant benefits cuts for existing and new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication and project planning. Reward community involvement for staff.
