    I have been working at Central Piedmont Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and department and work hours

    Cons

    The new president surrounds herself with yes men/women and leads by fear/intimidation. If the board wanted a polar opposite of the previous leadership, they got their wish. Hope is she will be moving on to her next conquest soon. Many good people at all levels left the college once she arrived. Some by choice others not. I’ve seen great peoples careers destroyed.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking for a better leader

    I worked at Central Piedmont Community College full-time

    Pros

    My position provided me with the ability to balance my work and home life quite well. The administrators are understanding if a personal emergency arises. The benefits are very good.

    Cons

    At times I felt as if other employees wouldn't help students with administrative issues such as scheduling classes, lifting course blocks, etc. as much as they should have. Sometimes I felt as if I were doing things that other employees should have been doing.

    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.
