    I have been working at San Diego Community College District part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a dynamic community with motivated and happy employees and students. Resources on campus for students and faculty are excellent.

    Cons

    Classes are impacted since 4-yr schools have become so expensive, and money for education is still tight, so SDCCD has a tremendous growth in # of students. This is good, but it means classes are very full.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time.

    Great benefits, diverse student population, direct involvement in committees and initiatives, doing what you love

    As in any large corporation, some areas are managed better than others. Nightmare? Dream job? Either available here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Difference of opinion does not equal a challenge to your credibility. The best rulers are servants.
