    I have been working at Valencia College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Valencia won best community college in the nation for a reason. They care about their students and about their employees a great deal. There are always workshops for employees to grow and better themselves in some aspect, if they so wish. There is a newsletter, and plenty of meetings and get togethers that make you feel like you're a part of the community. They care about your thoughts and opinions. They acknowledge when you've reached a milestone with the company, etc. You feel valued, which, to me, is very important in a job.

    Cons

    I've only had one bad experience with Valencia, and it was at the east campus. This specific group of higher-ups were very clicky and did not treat their employees very well. I choose to think that was an exception, not a rule.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly management across all campuses have been doing the right thing, because Valencia is amazing. My only advice is for deans to make sure the people who answer to them don't get clicky, or aren't sweeping problems under the rug, hiding them and not dealing with them properly in order to make themselves look good, which is what happened to me. It felt like the dean was far too removed and the management under him did as they pleased and did not deal with issues like a mature management would have. We are all adults and I'd like to see that reflected across all departments and campuses at Valencia.
