    I worked at Community College of Philadelphia part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a nice, mostly pleasant work environment. Excellent value. They are very accommodating to special circumstances and genuinely want to help you with your career.

    Cons

    The office structure can sometimes be very disorganized and hard to navigate which complicates getting things done a bit, however once you get more familiar with the offices and administrators it gets easier.

    Advice to Management

    Make college policies and procedures outlined clearly for students

    I worked at Community College of Philadelphia part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Theskills I have benefited from was learning to proform clerical duties, maintaining cleaningliness of computers and organize the public area too. Best of all my experiences with Community College of Philadelphia is that they take pride in their students continuing their education in a diverse environment located within the college.

    Cons

    I am sad to report that I was not allowed as a work-study student, I could not work over twenty hours a week. I enjoyed assisting the Financial aid Administrative employees at Community College of Philadelphia. I had to move on because I had graduated from the college.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice at this time to management.

    I have been working at Community College of Philadelphia part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Great colleagues, new buildings and renovations on all campuses
    -Benefits: great if you are full-time, decent if you are part-time. Tuition remission, dental/medical are fully paid for full-time employees. Tuition remission is 1 class for part-time and 2 classes after 2 years and employees pay into their medical/dental - coverage is great for what you pay.
    -Fun events year-around that foster positive employee morale
    -Diverse staff, faculty, and student population
    -Professional development is there if you take advantage of it (online trainings and every semester on campus)
    -Some members of administration are very encouraging and supportive in helping you utilize your best skills - I feel valued by my supervisor and department
    -Some of the instructors are incredible educators with passion for their jobs

    Cons

    -Almost no opportunities to move up if you are entry level or part-time - I work 2 jobs to sustain myself. I can't get another job on campus because it would put me in full-time status and they would have to pay benefits - even if you have the skills and excellent performance reviews, if you don't have their narrow definition of "experience" you are stuck in your position.
    -I haven't had a raise in years due to a quarrel between the union and administration
    -Some departments lack communication skills and are not helpful to students
    -Some members of the union have been around for a long time and have grown comfortable with doing very little
    -Some students come to my office often frustrated from being shuffled around by other staff members without clear solutions to their problems.
    -Some instructors are not so passionate about teaching.

    Advice to Management

    -Make your best employees feel valuable and let their annual performance reviews be reflected in their pay or upward mobility within the company
    -Get a contract between the union and administration
