    I have been working at Sussex County Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of nice people work for the college. There are many opportunities for creative and motivated individuals.

    Cons

    They are going through organizational and financial difficulties, so many people are concerned about their positions. Part time people receive no benefits at all!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Sussex County Community College full-time

    Pros

    When the highlight of your work environment is that administration doesn't interact with you (as was the claim of many of my co-workers) you know you are in trouble.

    Cons

    Money strapped, disorganized, with an administration unwilling to promote internally or get feedback from their staff. You can not grow a career here unless you are willing to take a 25% pay cut compared to those doing a similar job to you elsewhere, and survive by staying below the radar.

    Pros

    Rewarding work, some stellar co-workers

    Cons

    below average pay, a board of directors who can't be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Instill some confidence in your faculty. The administration needs to stand up to the board. Financial longevity is crucial, but we cannot

    I worked at Sussex County Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Sussex County Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 Management

    Make decisions that improve the success of the students instead of the wallets of the decision makers
