    I have been working at Champlain College full-time

    Pros

    Many great people across campus to work with. Beautiful campus and great benefits.

    Cons

    Very top heavy and many micro managers. No trust in the employees in some departments even though it is said.

    Advice to Management

    Really need to dive into the reason people are leaving cause it is usually the good hard workers getting burnt out from lack of recognition.

    I worked at Champlain College part-time

    Pros

    Everyone seems friendly and welcoming, at first. Everyone means well on the outside.

    Cons

    There are a lot of back deals going on, no on is ever sure of where they stand or what their role is. When they step out of their role, without it even being clearly laid out to them, they get the cold shoulder from administration or their higher-ups in a very passive-aggressive way. If you challenge or go against the grain in any way, you will be shunned. At the end of the day, they don't seem to care about student safety or progressiveness, and really care the most about saving face, no matter what that means.

    Advice to Management

    Be more direct in your style of communication, admit when you are wrong (it's okay! Everyone is wrong sometimes!), and try to see issues holistically instead of just through the private college lens. This will allow you to make the college a better place for students,staff, and faculty.
