    HR Enables a Toxic Workplace at PBS Charlotte

    Pros

    * State benefits * Respected in the community * Student focused

    Cons

    * Pay is low * HR doesn't support employees * Toxic manager allowed to mistreat employees at PBS Charlotte * CPCC seems to just care about meeting monetary targets at PBS Charlotte versus creating a great team environment.

    Great place to work, but compensation is below average (even for the higher ed sector)

    Jun 27, 2014 - Systems Analyst in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom to determine your own path at CPCC, but that is mostly because there is more work than qualified people. Management makes a strong effort to offset many of the negative aspects of working for the college by maintaining a functional balance of work and personal life. Because it tends to operate in an abnormal fashion (given the organizations size), CPCC has been able to establish pockets of unusually talented individuals, but those pockets are diminishing over time.

    Cons

    Salaries are an average of 20-40% less than comparable salaries in higher education (in Charlotte), and maybe half of what you would see for a comparable position in the private sector. There is also a staggering amount of bureaucracy and FUD that gets thrown around, mostly by long term employees who have little else to contribute.

    Adjunct Faculty - for the love, but no money

    Dec 14, 2012 - Adjunct Faculty in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Obtaining a part-time teaching position at CPCC was easy; they're glad to have outside business professionals teaching for them who are not necessarily academics. The students are the best part - they really respond to what you have to share with them and are generally grateful for any extra time you can give them. CPCC offers some of its adjunct faculty additional training in progressive teaching techniques.

    Cons

    The pay is embarrassingly low given the time and effort you must invest in teaching a course at CPCC. As a new adjunct, I was essentially on my own in terms of how I wanted to handle the coursework, writing my own tests, etc. The freedom to choose was nice, but more help and support from the full-time faculty would have been better.

    Friendly environment, but not a whole lot of advancement opportunities

    Sep 16, 2016 - PT Information Systems Analyst I in Charlotte, NC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The faculty and staff at CPCC are like a huge family. Everyone here is very friendly, and makes you feel welcome here. The work environment at CPCC is laid back and relaxing, provided you do your job. There are great benefits available for full-time employees, including bonuses with nearly every raise. The pay is good for a public institution, but could be better. Lots of available PT positions, and many of these positions offer great flexibility for those on tight schedules.

    Cons

    Too many part-time positions and too few full-time positions. PT employees receive little to no benefits, and cannot work than 25-29 hours a week. FT staff are paid at the beginning of the month, while PT staff must wait until around halfway through the month to receive their paychecks. While there are many PT employees here who intend to work PT, there are also many who are involuntary PT employees, meaning they wish to work FT, but cannot due to no FT positions being available. I personally have been working PT here for about 2 years, and have been wanting a FT position since the first time I walked in the door. I always hear that due to budgets and the ACA, there are few FT positions available. I also feel that a lot of times PT staff are left out from recognition for the hard work and service they provide
