    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Flexible with taking time off.

    Cons

    If you're not a 3rd generation Brenhamite, you're an outsider. Your suggestions for any improvements are not welcome. Don't rock the boat, or make any waves; you will be black listed. THE BATHROOMS ARE NEVER CLEAN. THEY ARE DISGUSTING.

    Advice to Management

    First, clean the bathrooms. Then set up an anonymous suggestion system. You will lose good people because they will quickly figure out they cannot effect any positive change.

    I worked at Blinn College part-time

    Pros

    A Great way to obtain teaching experience if you have a Masters degree.
    A good way to test and decide if teaching is the career pathway for you..
     If you like to work hard and earn your pay. Then, this is the job for you! There is never a dull moment with students or faculty.

    Cons

    Workload will spill into your weekends.
    To much politics and rumors in the workplace. Too many Instructors are competitive for a mythical or magical full time position.
    The pay is only once a month. NO Benefits. Very difficult to get promoted to full time. Part time workload feels like full time workload.

    More fairness , less politics.
