    SCCC used to be a great place to work

    ProsProximity to home, friendly staff, flexible hours, time off (holidays, vacation, sick, snow days)

    ConsBoard was determined to cut positions and benefits, all staff feared termination, backstabbing became common

    Advice to Senior ManagementPresident and CFO are destroying the moral, loss of students is loss of income, not sure if Senior Admin understands mission or organization

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The downfall of a junior college

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Newton, NJ

    ProsThe small class sizes, beautiful intimate campus, and professor/staff loyalty and dedication to the overall success of the institution and its student body

    ConsPoor business management combined with a confused authority structure have left this institlution in shambles. The college is no longer a great value and lacks the facilities to offer top of the line educational services. Even after an attempted overall of staff and leadership, the institiution remains in debt (although it is the 11th fastest growing junior college in the country over the last ten years!) with no explanation for many of the seemingly bizarre decisions that are made in an attempt to improve the financial situation of the institution (cutting campus security for upper campus while the VP gets a raise of over 30k!!!)

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions that improve the success of the students instead of the wallets of the decision makers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
