    I worked at Pima Community College full-time

    Pros

    Lots of PTO, regular work hours, nice coworkers, easy going atmosphere.

    Cons

    No raises or bonuses. If I hadn't of worked "Out of Class" I would have been at the same rate the entire time I worked here. Medical insurance is really good but dental is not great. Their are few opportunities for advancement at Pima. When they open a position it usually is opened to everyone that applies. They do not take your experience with the college very seriously.
