    I have been working at Carroll Community College full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly, before they knife you in the back
    Everybody, pats themselves on the backs
    incredible health benefits

    Cons

    Mayberry R.F.D. White and I mean white!
    A lot of talk of the Big Picture, but can't think out of the box
    Can't question the chain of command, because they do it right!

    Advice to Management

    "there are more ways than one to skin a cat". Meaning, just because you are in a high position, doesn't mean you know it all.

    I worked at Carroll Community College (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    One of the best if not the best executive management team I've worked under during my 40+ year career.

    Cons

    No real cons. As an educational institution they are subject to the same tensions and issues that face all colleges and universities. There are always tight budgets. Inclusiveness issues. Political Correctness issues.

    Pros

    Typical benefits provided by other educational institutions in the state.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a competitive salary and the stability of a public institution, look elsewhere. As a small institution located in Carroll County it's public funding is limited as well as its staff resources.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a culture of Leadership as opposed to simply managing workers.

    Pros

    The college is a great place to work. They understand the importance of a life/work balance and offer great benefits. This institution has a cohesive top-down leadership structure and offices work cohesively with each other, even outside of individual divisions.

    Cons

    There is currently not a lot of room for advancement and promotion. But job positions are secure.
