    Pros

    Good pay for a part time job

    Cons

    Have to kiss booty to get scheduled. Most of the instructors are obviously there for financial gains and to bully students. Very few take the time to inspire and encourage. Program director appears to have some social interaction and possible dependence issues. Administration is clueless.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of picking lead instructors and program coordinators.

    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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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