    I have been working at Dallas County Community College District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Benefits, including free health insurance & vacation time.
    * Hours worked

    Cons

    *Employees who have been here long are extremely bitter, making for a hostel work environment. There is not a lot of room to promote within the branch of the college you are in. However, if you are willing to try a new department there are many opportunities. Many employees complain about pay, but refuse to change anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the bitter crew, and hire happy people who are excited about life.

    Pros

    Plenty of vacation being on the college calendar plus holidays. Community College tuition waiver after 1 year for full time employees.

    Cons

    Not many options for upward movement past director level; some processes are district wide while same are per individual campus, yet many students ‘swirl’ in between multiple campuses. Cross campus communication and collaboration not strong.
