    Pros

    flexible schedule, great people to work with, freedom to do your job without management hovering, value your input and feedback, supportive coworkers

    Cons

    not enough hours, slow at times, minimum wage, high employee and customer turnover, no training-just assumed you knew what you were doing

    Advice to Management

    The tutoring program has potential to grow, but tutors should be compensated better and empowered to do a good job.


  2. Stay away from Financial Aid or Cashiers office!

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Lots of paid time off and medical insurance is free.

    Cons

    Money is horrible!!! No raise in 2 years. Enrollment has gone way down!! Lay offs will come soon!

    Advice to Management

    Demote some of the supervisors. In a department with 9 reps and 6 supervisors, that is way too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Instead of focusing on negatives, please praise workers too. It would boost the morale!

    Pros

    Great family environment. Good benefits if you're a full-time employee.

    Cons

    They pick favorites. If you're not a supervisor favorite, be prepared to be spat on by someone or blamed for something you had nothing to deal with.

    Pros

    Amazing faculty and staff. Healthcare paid by college. Great atmosphere.

    Cons

    Lower pay than expected but they make up for it with benefits package.


  6. Great launching place or a place to end career; be ready to move on to other opportunities within 2 years.

    Pros

    Small environment. This can be positive so that you can learn and meet people.

    Good for the students because the pay is not good so most Professors and instructors really love their job, or they would not be there.

    Cons

    Good place if management likes you. If you are not in the good graces of the "key people", you may not be aware of opportunities nor allowed to participate.

    Also, Pensacola State College is not culturally aware and do not actively encourage diversity and tolerance. Minorities tend to deal with lots of microagression. Microaggression is a form of unintended discrimination. It is depicted by the use of known social norms of behavior and/or expression that, while without conscious choice of the user, has the same effect as conscious, intended discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Value the differences and talents that individuals can bring; individuals that come from a different environment, culture, socioeconomic status, age ranges, genders, sexual orientations, etc.

    This is when PSC will grow because they will be able to recruit AND maintain students. Students will connect because they will find that they feel they belong.

    Pros

    Working with Career and Technical students

    Cons

    Current leadership is lacking in just that, no real leadership. No mentoring. No helping to grow and develop employee as a professional. No loyalty to employees. Would quickly hire outside before promoting strong, qualified current employee with in the department. Happened to multiple individuals.


  8. The beginning was GREAT - wonderful, intelligent people/faculty/admin to work with, but it changed with the new admin.

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits, college lifestyle. The promotion system is pretty fair due to the college being unionized. The art center is fantastic. There are a lot of smart folks that work at this college. They are a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    However, when a new college president took over a few years ago, things got really unpleasant. There is a feeling of constantly being "watched and evaluated." Even tenured faculty aren't safe. Either you're "on board" with the plan or don't expect to have any favors tossed your way in terms of scheduling, raises, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to former admin (former president in particular who was wonderful) and believe in your professional, educated faculty. They care much more than you think.

    Pros

    PSC is full of great, helpful coworkers. This is a great job for a household that needs a worker's hours to be in line with school schedules, but provide only a supplemental income. They have a large number of loyal, long-time career employees, which speaks well to the culture of the school. They do a good job of recognizing and providing awards to employees, and the work schedule (Holiday and Spring breaks, Fridays off in the summer) is a strong selling point for working there. Employees participate in FL state insurance and benefits plans, which are decent but not exceptional.

    Cons

    Salaries are low for the type of work and level of responsibility, in comparison with other states. While considered full time, the calculated hourly wage does not pay on a full 40 hours per week. There were no plans or schedules for advancement or increase in pay grade available to participate in; pay is stagnant and expected to remain so for the forseeable future. They rely on the lifestyle advantages of work schedule as compensation, which would be sufficient, if the household had an additional income; mine did not.

    Advice to Management

    Providing even a little flexibility in the range of pay would be an improvement.
