    Pros

    Benefits were untouchable (at the time, before Act 10)
    Decent pay for job requirements

    Cons

    Internal candidates need not apply

    Advice to Management

    Look at the talent you have and be willing to promote those individuals who are good fits to new or open positions.

    Pros

    I work with wonderful people who truly care about the work that they do. The environment is student-success focused. We are constantly looking or ways to enhance the learner's experience. Strong team dynamic. Mission is evident in outcomes.

    Cons

    Some fear with employees post Act 10. Quite a bit of uncertainty--mostly self-induced.

    Pros

    Reasonable to high salaries. Benefits for full time employees are fantastic. Benefits for part time employees exist, but are prohibitively expensive for most part time employees.

    Cons

    Inappropriately low expectations of students and faculty. Too tolerant of negative or inappropriate behaviors, attitudes, and comments.

    Pros

    Lax on uniforms. I could wear my Converse, jeans, and nice shirts. They didn't care if I showed up at 6:00am or 6:05am. The building I worked in was nice, too, since it had just been rebuilt over this past summer. No weekends, and I met some cool people whom I could tease (gently!) about not getting coffee when they came over for food.

    Cons

    HAIRNETS! UGH! I'm sorry, but they made me feel like a grumpy old lunch lady when I wore them.

    DISORGANIZATION GALORE! The cafe is new, so rules change all the time, which is annoying. There were no aprons, STILL, for me and my coworker by the time I was fired (6 weeks!). Signs for the menu took WAY too long to come in, and I was always made to cashier, as if my coworker couldn't stop slicing up chicken or carrots for whatever she was making, EVER.

    Poor communication skills, and they don't give you chances to improve if you do something wrong. You just get barked at or talked to a few times, then boom, you get fired. Messy! Not worth accepting an offer!

    Advice to Management

    You guys need to stop changing your minds so much about the rules and where things go. You guys also need to have ACTUAL REVIEWS of performance with your future employees, not just barking or yelling at them here and there. Give people a chance to catch on to new procedures and stop accusing them of not listening just because they're not grinning like crazy and writing things down. Don't accuse your next barista of not being happy or interested in people because they're not grinning and waltzing around like Cinderella doing her chores as drinks are being made. I got that and it was SO unfair.

    Pros

    Some team members are quite bright and generous with their talent and smarts.

    Cons

    Critical information wasn't disclosed during interview process leading to a poor fit upon joining.

    Advice to Management

    Consider being more transparent during the interview process.
