    I worked at Blinn College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company cares for its employees. Supervisors and co-workers are eager to help each other at the drop of a hat.

    Cons

    There are no cons to speak of. It is the best place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Blinn College part-time

    Pros

    Most of the faculty and staff that I have encountered while working there seems to be dedicated to helping students succeed, and will work together to meet that goal.

    Cons

    I was told when I started working there that there was little growth opportunities in my area. The college will not allow full time tutors because they cannot (will not?) pay for the benefits

    I worked at Blinn College part-time

    Pros

    Parking is always available and the campus is quiet.

    Cons

    Nepotism is a disease on campus. Everyone there has a job because a family member works there. Some departments even have entire families working there that are all unqualified to work but they make it happen either way. They also take kickbacks from other universities to send students there.

    Pros

    I love my job and what I did as being a custodial and meeting new people and helping others as needed through out the day and assisting them with assignments

    Cons

    When it rained and the water flooded the buildings

    Advice to Management

    I would always be on time and get the job done

    I worked at Blinn College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - So many good benefits like health insurance
    -Friendly and nice coleagues

    Cons

    - I would say some of the meetings were a little too frequent

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do! I loved working there

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment with a tight connection to the Texas A & M system giving a level of academic rigor not usually seen in a 2 yr college math department.

    Cons

    The salary is on the low side for 2 yr colleges in the state of Texas and real raises are pretty much non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop trying to micro manage the classrooms and allow the hire professionals to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Administration is very supportive of faculty. The facilities are very nice.

    They hire many adjuncts to fill positions instead of hiring full-time faculty.

    I worked at Blinn College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work with great people! The smaller class size and caliber of students was outstanding. Students were there to learn and gain knowledge prior to transferring to their 4 year institution of choice.

    Cons

    Smaller town that has a relatively high cost of living in regards to either rent or land purchase. The smaller atmosphere lends itself to everyone being involved in each activity.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and don't lose the personal one on one touch that your institution can provide. The people make the program and don't let that slide.
