    I worked at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) full-time

    Pros

    If you are in the right union you get pretty good benefits. A few of my coworkers turned into life long friends

    Cons

    There's a lot of shirking of responsibilities amongst departments. This results in many rightfully angry students. I received little back up from my manager in difficult situations.

    Advice to Management

    Take more of a customer service attitude towards the students. Encourage staff to do so. if they aren't able to then maybe try to find someone who can.

    I worked at Cambridge College (Massachusetts) full-time

    Pros

    I liked the benefits: Health insurance, vacation days, sick days
    I met great people as well

    Cons

    Some people in leadership positions are not ready to be leaders.

    Advice to Management

    1. Observe each department day to day activities for a week to get a sense of what front line really do
    2. More training for leaders and staff as well (Specially for leaders) - Good employees leave because of bad leaders.
