    I have been working at Centennial College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great President who is passionate and caring, employees generally care about the students and each other. Many start at 8:30 and leave at 4:30.

    Cons

    HR is disorganized - poor follow through - possibly in part because of lack of sufficient staffing. Also PD offerings are just okay.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you are staffing your departments appropriately including academic schools, International, and HR. Overall there is poor morale where staff are overworked. Look at the increase in enrolment and translate that to an increase in staffing. Employees are feeling squeezed and stressed.

    Also continue to look at improving PD offerings for staff. Look at other colleges and universities for ideas.

    I have been working at Centennial College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great students , variety of cultural backgrounds, overall offer some good tools and courses available for teachers to understand teaching strategies and challenges .

    Cons

    As contract faculty you have no job security. You are at the mercy of the Chair and Dean of your School. There is little consistency from School to School on how staff is treated. School of Hospitality and Tourism in particularly shows little respect for staff.

    Advice to Management

    College Management needs to ensure that the respect and values that are touted as part of the College culture are actually used by and committed to by the Dean/Chair of each individual School/teaching department

    I have been working at Centennial College full-time

    Pros

    Teachers are good and very knowledgeable to there courses of teaching.

    Cons

    Canceling part time courses will definitely messing up student's time schedule especially those who have work. Canceling once is okay but three times in a row is totally ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Better not to offer the course anymore rather than canceling it 2 days before the class starts especially REVIT Courses.
