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

    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.

    I worked at Central Texas College full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Decent insurance, out early on Fridays

    Cons

    Low pay. Poor fiscal management leads to the employees suffering. HR of no help to employees. CTC should investigate administration of departments with high turnover rates. It is a hostile work environment and good people have left. Workloads are higher for some than others and they just don't care about their employees. They exploit them for all they can get. DO NOT work for these people!

    Advice to Management

    Quit, so qualified people who have management training can do a better job. Train and mentor your employees. Stop blaming upper management for your inability to control your anger and harassment of employees.
