    I worked at Cincinnati State Technical & Community College full-time

    Pros

    Great people, wonderful students, generally pays well

    Cons

    Human Resources wil interfere in your personal life, even if it has no relationship to the college whatsoever. You will find that HR is the most disliked office on that campus, and invite you to ask someone who works there what they think of HR. And if they advertise a job, be prepared to accept less money than they post. If possible, get yourself a job that is a unionized position, otherwise you have no protection against the regime.

    I have been working at Cincinnati State Technical & Community College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    diversity in staff and student body. beautiful outdoor grounds

    Cons

    Lack of resources that affect the upkeep of the facilities, including overall cleanliness. Facilities look in disrepair, they are dirty and grimy. Disorganization and lack of communication between departments, low morale of employees across the board, lack of up-to-date technology, lack of leadership and professional development support.

    Advice to Management

    Address these obvious issues to improve the morale of your employees, feelings of under appreciation coupled with the state of disrepair and overall drab and dirty environment is depressing and employees do not do their best work under these conditions.

    I worked at Cincinnati State Technical & Community College full-time

    Pros

    CSTATE's direct service employees are dedicated and knowledgeable. The geographic size of the campuses is idea for pre-collegiate programming. As a result, the college has won a number of federally funded college assess programs grants that serve the Greater Cincinnati community.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, greed and the lack of accountability has affected the quality of service the direct service to the grant participants.

    Advice to Management

    ALL administrative personnel should possess a business management credential.

    Pros

    Students are generally wonderful here. Cincinnati State, like many community colleges presents great opportunities for teaching centered classroom experience.

    Cons

    Don't expect to move up if you notice things. Emperors have clothes at Cincinnati State, and it's best that you remember that. Adjuncts are considered an unending pool of disposable employees, and the majority of classes are taught by adjuncts. Adjuncts are compensated poorly, though commensurate with a sort of regional adjunct collusive rate of pay. Seem to hire more "corporatized" adjuncts rather than more "academic" types of adjuncts for full time positions. Also, there is a 2 month pay lag, as term contracts are not delivered and signed until a few weeks into the term.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay, provide more facilities (to perform duties), present contracts before the term starts. Keep tabs on the climate of the individual departments without being invasive. Certain cliques seem to develop here, and not in a positive way.

    Staff is like family

    Cons

    Union Mentality and behaviors prevents the intitution from improving from within. Hr never updates site; job postings are more than likely already filled.

    They can't change anything since it's a union

    Pros

    The faculty are supportive of each other.

    Cons

    The management/administration does not respect the faculty.

    Advice to Management

    Trust people. Don't listen to the "old guard." Make opinions for yourself. The separation between management and faculty will break this college.

    Pros

    Students are great, and there are many teachers and staff who care deeply for the students and their success and well-being. If you can get a full-time job there, the benefits are supposed to be quite good.

    Cons

    No path to full-time employment for part-timers- no employee development, either. Communication there isn't the best, and consequently students can fall through the cracks despite good intentions and programs designed to monitor and help students along. Information is hard to get--the website is the worst, and it doesn't look like it will be launched soon.

    Advice to Management

    Develop the talent you have there--there are tons of great people languishing in part-time positions.
