    I have been working at COCC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    A lot of upwards movement
    Promote from within
    Clued in executive management that reward the staff
    Top workplaces each year

    Cons

    Pay sometimes might be below market, but with the added benefits I believe it all evens out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting from within and sticking to the culture that has created a great atmosphere!

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

    Pros

    Positive attitude and family atmosphere in company that tries to give a good work/life balance.
    Start with 20 PTO days which is great.
    Not in Hartford, lots of free parking, nice new building.
    Flexible schedule.
    Gym and subsidized meals on premises.

    Cons

    Salaries are below standard which used to be offset by benefits but now that has gone down hill as well. Insurance benefits are getting very expensive. Raises are abysmal.
    Initial training was sink or swim with not much documentation for backup.
    Management rules are different for each employee. Work at home is allowed for some 100% but others can even get a random day here and there which is unfair and causes resentment within departments.
    Lots of nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Start giving better raises to your existing proven employees and be consistent on the WAH policies.

    For a company its size, COCC offers very competitive benefit plans and generous subsidies to HSA accounts and health plan costs. Like most employers, we have had to move away from expensive co-pay... More

    I worked at COCC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful building, recently done over. Not sure there was much more, worked way too much and was not fairly paid.

    Cons

    Over worked and underpaid by a boss who had a 1950's mindset yet managed a team if almost all women! WFH was chosen for random employees, there was no rhyme or reason. HR help was non existent if there was a problem. Unless you were willing to work extra and not be paid for it you were looked down upon

    I have been working at COCC full-time

    Pros

    They offer a variety of resources to their employees & provide an opportunity to gain a lot of real world experience. Company strives to make employees feel good (casual attire in the workplace, free food days, giveaways, social events, etc).

    Cons

    Can be clique oriented at times, some individuals shouldn't be in management, sometimes HR picks and chooses what it wants to discipline, don't expect to get paid your market value, projects can be overwhelming when your staff is limited in numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees financially

    I have been working at COCC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Great atmosphere.
    -Worklife balance
    -Remote access as needed
    -Company is growing fast but won't allow itself to grow too fast.
    -Quality over quantity.

    Cons

    -The pay is well below average and it take a lot to get raises.
    -Starting to reach the size where getting anything to change is very slow and borderline impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better out the gate. It would stop people from getting disheartened earlier in their career.
