    Pros

    Flexible, very helpful administration and hands on.

    Cons

    There are not too many negatives for this company. I feel that the program could have continued with a larger grant.

    I have been working at Southwest Tennessee Community College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits, generally the people that we work with are pretty good joes. Good family support if you or your spouse, kids etc. have any problems.

    Cons

    Saleries are pretty low, compared to the average pay for someone with my 31 years of computer/network/database manager experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you are determining the next raise to give the Client Services department (desktop support) think about all of the times you have called on us to get your computer operating.

    I worked at Southwest Tennessee Community College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed working conditions, Good co workers, Able to really assist people, great benefits including college tuition discount at any TBR School.

    Cons

    Office Politics, there is a constant struggle for influence among managers, Low pay, the ability of someone who has influence but no knowledge of your department to make major decisions affecting the entire dept and it's ability to provide service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base decisions on merit, not who's got your ear.

    Former Employee - Adjunct Instructor in Memphis, TN

    I worked at Southwest Tennessee Community College as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everything I needed for my teaching purposes was provided to me. Very good lines of communication between myself and department head and department secretary. Small class sizes so I could give individual attention to certain students when I had to.

    Cons

    Compensation was quite low even for just being an Adjunct Instructor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer higher compensation and more qualified teachers will want to work there, improving the overall quality of education students are receiving.
