    I worked at Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits were great. The faculty and staff were excellent to work with. Everyone was caring and seemed to enjoy their job. The environment was drama free.

    Cons

    Every semester is under contract and depending upon funding you are not guaranteed a job. The hours are limited and usually under 35 hours a week.

    I worked at Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible schedule to fit your everyday life. Pay is great and being in an out of classroom setting is awesome.

    Cons

    The Con-Ed Coordinators are very lax about their instructors. They have a few favorites that get by with doing whatever they want, and then the rest are scrutinized.

    Advice to Management

    Consider roles of your coordinators and the way they treat others that work under them.

    I worked at Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with and mentoring the students in the Culinary program. I also enjoyed working with Brenda Dietz the founder and former director of the program. It is unfortunate that she retired after my first year of teaching at CCC&TI. I believe that together we could have taken the program to new heights.

    Cons

    I thought it was very impersonal and unprofessional for the new director to inform me that I was "no longer needed" as an instructor at CCC&TI by email without even having a chance to meet her in person to discuss my qualifications for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be so hung up over degrees. Past experience and professional development count for a great deal. Sometimes practical experience is worth far more than a piece of paper.

  8. "Close-knit group of employees with lots of respect for others."

    Pros

    Great working environment with lots of employee autonomy. They respect your work and are open to new ideas.

    Cons

    Parking situation can be difficult in fall and spring semesters. Not really a con if you don't mind walking a bit!

    Pros

    Get away from the Aviation Department, and you have a "Great" place to be associated with.

    Cons

    Aviation Department Instructors and some of the students are a bunch of "Backstabbing and Untrustworthy People." I have every laid my eyes on or talked to.

    Advice to Management

    Review your Aviation Department Instructors and replace them. They will lie to authorities and stab people in the back. They are not to be trusted. Some of the students are even worse than the instructors.
