    I have been working at Central Piedmont Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've enjoyed working with the faculty and administrative staff in my division. I've also enjoyed having Fridays off during the summer and extended time off during December. Witnessing college students in our division succeed is rewarding as well.

    Cons

    Answering phone calls from angry or frustrated students, sometimes being able to assist them, but other times not. My division recently "merged" with another division. It's been an adjustment for everyone involved and we're still trying to figure out how to continue our yearly events under a new director. Decision was made by higher administration and I don't think they thought things through.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how your decision affects others.
