    Pros

    Team environs, students, ability to think outside the box

    Cons

    Leadership has been lacking for so many years. Harper keeps hiring admins and not clerical staff, pro techs like myself, or faculty. We have too many generals and nto enough soldiers, so to speak. And, the current president is a joke, comes up with dozens of new initiatives every day, out of touch with students, very out of touch with workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some more people to do actual work...not to manage initiatives that appear and disappear faster than they can be named...and waste a ton of taxpayer monies

  3. Great opportunities along with great people and a safe environment.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Retirement and Flexiable with Scheduling.

    Cons

    They run this college like a corporation, they will do anything to get rid of long term employees to hirer cheaper paid salaries. Breuder is paid over 300k a year to be a president at a community college.

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate with employees better

  10. No vision and fifty shades of disrespect

    Pros

    Some are paid well. You get free continuing education courses.

    Cons

    HR is very nice but nothing is written down unless you are in a union. So, everything is up to the subjective nature of your supervisor. No lunchbreaks. Everyone is scared and overworked which means that they try to push their work on to you or blame you for delays.
