    I worked at San Juan College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People usually work hard for the college. Good focus on students. Good benefits. Seems like they are bringing back the step increases with salary which will help with morale.

    Cons

    Low pay for the region. Starting to get more raises. We'll see if it sticks. Not sure that the upper management communicates why they make the decisions that they do adequately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the step increases going. Explain the decisions you're making, especially if you're cutting positions.

    I have been working at San Juan College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and paid-time off, including 2-week Christmas break. Passionate employees with student-driven focus. Employees receive 4 credits a semester (free) for advancing education.

    Cons

    Low pay, especially for starting employees. No incentive for professional staff to receive advanced degrees. Unfair internal hiring practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide incentive to professional staff for obtaining advanced degrees.

    I have been working at San Juan College full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    There are some great Staff and Faculty working here trying to make the place the great College it once was

    Cons

    Administration is very into micro management and plays favorites. Administration ignores the feedback and advice of its Deans, Faculty and Committees and makes decisions based upon their own personal preferences rather than what is best for the College

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop Micromanaging, be a leader and listen to the smart people around you.

    Good benefits, nice environment. A good way to get experience when you have limited job history.

    Pay is not inline with other companies. Can be difficult to advance if you do not have an advanced education degree.

    Be more open to experience vs education level!

    I have been working at San Juan College

    Pros

    Really pretty buildings and grounds. Great people to work with. Important mission in community. Diverse student body.

    Cons

    Not an open environment. Processes are mysterious. Priorities in odd places. Lacks strong leadership in most areas. No school paper.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk around. Talk to people. Respect opinions other than your own. Notice things like morale (low) and take it seriously.
