    Good job with some part-timer perks, if you are well-connected.

    I worked at Palmer College of Chiropractic part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stong company work ethic, values and supports the community. Makes you feel like you're making a contribution with the right mindset. Good leadership. Good hourly pay with perks for part-timers. Paid holidays off. Quarterly free lunches, phone plan discount, retirement plan automatically deducted from paychecks. Community involvement opportunities. Paid job training.

    Cons

    Impossible to obtain a full-time job internally unless extremely well connected. Little chance for advancing unless you are well-connected to upper management. Fierce competition for work and job tasks. Too many cliques. Full-time employees complain that they could be better appreciated. Strict uniform in clinic.

    Advice to Management

    Management could focus more on internal team-building, and less internal competition. Bring a little more fun back!

    I worked at Palmer College of Chiropractic full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits like healthcare, with partial payment, generous vacation and sick time, opportunity for scholarly activity and remuneration for such, travel abroad with chiropractic clinic abroad program, continuing education opportunities, literal hands on educating and free chiropractic care at each campus clinic.

    Cons

    Centralised control structure, such as the old USSR. Three different campuses, three different demographics venues. Demands of a uniform curriculum despite two schools operating on a 4 quarter plan and the main campus working in a trimester framework. A dishonest and disingenuous senior management layer. Very poor communication on the local and institutional level. Very poor technology infrastructure used in class and clinic environments for an institution that prides itself as "The trusted name in Chiropractic Education".

    Advice to Management

    If I had a dollar to the reference for each time I heard about the "Self Study" and the need to work on communication for over five years and it does just not happen. Talking & dictating is not communication. When a campus president tells an employee that "I can replace you with a Wal-Mart greeter" somebody should be thinking of retiring.

    I worked at Palmer College of Chiropractic full-time

    Pros

    1. Good vacation/sick pay benefits. 2. Type of work can benefit society. 3. Overall friendly people.

    Cons

    1. The company rarely fires employees. This means bad employees hang around and poison the environment for all. 2. No pay for performance. 3. Annual raises lower than cost of living increases. 4. Management seeks little input from employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show loyalty to your employees. Don't just demand theirs.
