    I have been working at Central Texas College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Time off is the only thing they can hide behind.

    Cons

    Salaries are a joke (Walmart starting pay is higher), they are in no way competitive salary wise position for position. Expect to perform the work of three positions for less compensation than one, no raises unless you are of relation to the Chancellor (both of his daughters jobs were "reclassified" in order to obtain raises). HR/EEO (unethical and sometimes illegal), administration belittle and verbally abuse staff to include sexist remarks from top leadership (complaints have been made but HR buries them all).

    Advice to Management

    Take some leadership classes, you do not know everything like you think you do! The times have changed and you have been left behind. Most of you were born privileged and are completely out of touch with the reality of how your staff is living. Mismanagement is tearing apart your organization and your staff is upset about a few cents raise while you line your pockets. Your need for perpetual (yes your staff has a vocabulary that includes "perpetual") self gratification proves that you are only about yourselves and have no interest in growing this institution. In conclusion, I feel that you need to be reminded that most if not all of your staff is currently seeking employment.

    Pros

    There are no pros at this location.

    Cons

    The upper Management just cares about themselves. PERIOD!!!! No pay raises in three years ,but you build a dog park ,construction ,and signs Instead of raises. Employees at McDonalds and other fast food get better pay.

    Advice to Management

    Make pay better than local Fast Food Restaurants

    I worked at Central Texas College full-time

    Pros

    Half days on Fridays. Off on a lot of holidays.

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. Management is a joke. It's not WHAT you know, but WHO you know. A lot of nepotism going on from the chancellor down which breeds a lot of favoritism that should not be allowed. Some employees are allowed to get away with things that would get others in trouble. Everyone sees it but no one says anything about it.

    Also, how are you going to completely shut down one department after years of service? And only with a 30 day notice. Really? You think that was enough time for people to prepare? On top of that, no consideration was given to the displaced employees on being placed somewhere else in the college. Yes, they all had to apply to open positions but none of them were considered for any position....except one...the village idiot. He got a cushy position because again....it was who he knew, not what he knew. While everyone else was being rejected left and right, this idiot got the job description and requirements re-written just for him. Don't you need a Master's Degree to be a professor? Oh, but the people who had the credentials were automatically rejected so this idiot could get a position. Yeah, fishy. After seeing how the people in this department were treated, there is no way that I can in good conscious recommend this place to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spending money on "beautifying" the campus when you should spend that money on paying the employees what they are worth. You should have used that $250,000 spent on building that ugly concrete sign on your employees.

    Also, if everyone can't have a raise, then why can the chancellor, the board, and the chancellor's step daughter get one? Two years without a cost of living increase due to money shortage yet the higher ups get themselves raises. Sounds very fishy to me.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance and colleagues that have to create their own support systems because the institution has none.

    Cons

    Pay and ironically educational benefits, upper management belittles staff on a daily basis and we "lucky to have jobs". Ruled by fear not respect.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for, and those of us that stick around have our own agenda. Pay us a respectable wage and let us do our jobs. Us, the pee-ons/go-fors run this institution not the "elite" that don't know their left from their right hand.

    Pros

    You are allowed to lead however, opinions and ideals are not heeded until it's to late. Good retirement plan and you get all majors holidays, spring break and Christmas break.

    Cons

    Favoritism is obvious. Some of the Senior Leadership have been there for many years and need to pass the mantle to new Leadership. Senior leadership is reactionary and not visionary.

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen more to mid-level managers and the people in the trenches. Visit campus offices more during registration.
