    I have been working at Bay State College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The business is small and personal. It is easy to find anyone anytime. Faculty for the most part are very friendly and easy to work with.

    Cons

    room for growth seems limited. Salary increases seem non-existent.

    I have been working at Bay State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location, Able to directly facilitate students success

    Cons

    Some co-workers lack the ability to communicate, making other people's job much difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into students and employees. They should also work on student's work study position abilities. They should be treated as an actual part-time employee rather than ignored as an employee.

    I worked at Bay State College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Team oriented, clear goals were established by management. Events, helping students and families with the college admissions process. Small college easier to spend more individualized time with students.

    Cons

    Growth is limited, with being a small college. If you don't want to work for a profit college then this isn't the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great before I left!

    I have been working at Bay State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not much at the moment. BSC used to have a family feel and used to genuinely care for employees.

    Cons

    Nepotistic, money-hungry group of people that are making decisions to protect themselves, rather than protecting the students they are serving. Upper management is making hasty decisions to protect their own salary. Want to get promoted or move into other positions within the college? Just make sure that you connect with the right people and you will be fine - there is no need to actually have experience for what you are doing. It's amazing to see the turnover that is starting to increase due to these factors. Many of us are just waiting for these negative changes to start impacting our departments as well.

    Students face significant costs for programs that can easily be studied for much less at another institution. Definitely turning into a serious for-profit college as opposed to a for-profit that many students and families do not realize is a for-profit. Students should beware before they are suckered in.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house at the executive level and bring on actual professionals with experience in the fields that they represent.
