    I worked at Central Piedmont Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The benefits of being full time are amazing. You have paid leave/sick time, holiday, inclement weather, etc. The retirement plans are great as well. You really do feel like a big family. Dysfunctional, yes, but still a family.
    A lot of people wouldn’t agree with me but with the benefits that the state offers, the pay isn’t that bad.

    Cons

    Financial Services department only.

    Cons:
    1) you have to know upper management to get ahead. Doesn’t matter if you have the degree, good and ETHICAL work habits, or the skills to get a job in this department.
    2) There are only a few supervisors that actually lead and empower their employees.
    3)no proper training and makes it hard and inconsistent across the board. Everyone is doing something different.
    4) maternity) paternity leave is nonexistent but I believe that this is a state issue?

    Advice to Management

    I can’t stress enough... this department as a whole needs to be more aware of each other’s processes and respect everyone’s policies. Training needs to be consistent across the board. Cross train to eliminate assumptions and unfair judgements. All front end staff NEED to be trained in the exact same way to eliminate student frustration due to misinformation. Also, training will help with keeping everyone in lign with state policy.

    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.
