    SRJC is a fun and energetic place to work but the bureaucracy is cumbersome.

    I worked at Santa Rosa Junior College part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The campus is lovely and the students are great! A majority of the faculty is top notch and professional. It is one of the best Junior colleges in the state. The culinary program is excellent as is the child development program.

    Cons

    The paperwork is nuts and the protocols antiquated inefficient. Trying to get supplies ordered and space to work can be difficult. My office leaked for over a year and they never could fix it or find a place to move our department offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully examine the internal systems then fix them. The JC wastes so much time and energy that would be better spent serving the students and the community.

    I worked at Santa Rosa Junior College as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    The two supervisors that were there during my internship at SRJC were very supportive and brought differing perspectives to the work. The campus is a very beautiful and relaxed environment to work in. Working in the health center with a psychiatrist is a great well-rounded opportunity to grow as a therapist. Because it's a community college, you often end up with a wider range of incomes, ages and GAFs than you'd expect.

    Cons

    There was a certain amount of drama among the interns that was somewhat addressed by the supervisors, but may have been left to fester for a bit too long.

    I have been working at Santa Rosa Junior College

    Pros

    The support for this institution is unlike anything I have seen nationally towards 2 year colleges. This institution is as highly regarded in this community as any 4 year university.

    Cons

    The bureacracy here is a nightmare - endemic throughout the California system. There is a strong sense of pecking order and entitlement among older employees. The California budget crisis makes for a lot of uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to get people out of their silos and encourage campus-wide dialogue. There is not a sense of togetherness on this campus amongst faculty.

    Pros

    There is so much potential to make a difference and be a part of a positive community,. Santa Rosa Community College has great possibility to be a wonderful resource for the student population as well as the community.

    Cons

    When you are "in" your are a part of a team and when you are part of the"in" you are definitely not feeling party to the obvious difference as the "out". The facility is wrought with possiblity but try to get a decent shot at a job w/out the inside connection. Do not step in the ring unless you are tight with someone who can protect you from the inevitable nics and scratches you will receive as the newbie. There are so many pockets being padded here, fluff and waste particularly in the tenured staff and faculty, the who is sleeping with who crowd. It is a hideous waste of resources. Once you are"in" who is gonna touch you, it is a carpet ride to the end. Sad no real evaluations are done w/ re: to either the faculty or the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prune the dead limbs... stop restricting the employment possibilities and allow some fresh ideas and new people to put their mark on this nearly defunct old horse.

    I have been working at Santa Rosa Junior College

    Pros

    Once you have permanent status you have ability to apply for internal transfer to other positions
    Good benefits and paid holidays
    Nice campus to work on

    Cons

    Pay freezes for over 3 years now due to problems in educational funding
    Changing culture and shifts in workplace environment due to the hard times
    $120 per year for parking permit
    Increased workloads due to elimination of positions
    Union fee required -or user fee for those who wish to abstain
    Due to union contract that dominates hiring practices- there is little possibility to be promoted or receive an 'unscheduled' pay increase.
