    USE to be a great place to work

    ITS (Former Employee)
    Williamsport, PA

    ProsIncredible benefits with plenty of vacation days (which you'll need)

    ConsMicro managed by too many managers. You'll spend your whole day doing nothing but filling out daily reports and explaining yourself to 3 managers, and assistant director and the director. For being a technology college can't understand why people would want to use anything but Windows and makes fun of linux and mac users behind their backs.

    Advice to Senior Managementtake some management courses

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    PCT is an up and coming competitor in Higher Ed.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Williamsport, PA

    ProsThe benefits are excellent and the president, Davie Gilmour, has done a terrific job of handling things with the tightening of the higher education budgets in PA and with communicating with employees to eliminate fear and concern. It is not a research school so it is great for those people more interested in teaching than research.

    ConsThere is still a stigma of the former community college environment surrounding the school which can make it difficult to get recognition outside of the college as a professor in a Bachelor's degree program. It is not a research school, so it could be difficult moving to another 4-yr institution in certain fields.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work in PA

    Computer Help Desk (Current Employee)

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication 101, do not take a week to get into contact with someone

    good for some

    Assistant Professor (Current Employee)

    Prosquiet atmosphere, not real challenging, union environment. Small town with easy access to things. One isn't required to produce research, can concentrate on teaching.

    Consopen enrollment, not real challenging, heavy teaching load, union environment, nepotism. Almost no diversity in the faculty, staff or student body. Small town attitudes. Not much culture beyond outdoors activities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think the management is aware of the problems facing Penn College and is trying to deal with them. Not much to add.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
