    I have been working at Carroll Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are student-centered
    Customer service mentality
    Current President is a strong leader, down to earth but with vision, always keeps the students first and foremost
    Great employees with a common mission
    Fantastic holidays off (1 week for Spring Break, 2 weeks Winter, etc.) and vacation days

    Cons

    Broken, out-of-date internal systems result in inefficiencies, duplication of effort, and frustration among staff
    Lack of diversity (not CCC's fault, it's the location)
    Depressingly low pay rates
    Healthcare and other insurance used to be superior but is now only average

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the employees, technology and new, innovative programming that will raise the bar

    The college cares deeply about their nursing program.

    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.
