    You can teach extra classes and increase your take home salary. The work life balance is amazing depending on department.

    I worked at Daytona State College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can get free degrees. Health benefits are pretty good. Depending on the department and its leadership, there maybe room for growth.

    Cons

    Its not what you know, the education you have , nor the years you've been loyal... but who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a true diversity program and a willingness to change. Better yet, get get rid of the sitting board and president.

    I worked at Daytona State College full-time

    Pros

    One you can get hired you can grow and further education is encouraged

    When I was hired in 2006 it was a true family work environment. The Board changed everything and it was all about the bottom line in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices and get to know your employees and students

    I worked at Daytona State College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    3 weeks' paid vacation on top of public holidays. Health & fitness facilities. Annual preventive health care gives peace of mind. Reduced-price quality lunches/dinners provided by students in the hospitality college program.

    Cons

    Management was top-heavy, but may have changed since I left. Poverty line salaries for support staff. Prepare to have your embarrassingly low salary printed in the local paper for any one to see. Demoralizing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat each person equitably and offer rewards based on efforts.

    I worked at Daytona State College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    State pension and health/fitness benefits. In addition to the national paid holidays, employees get one week off during spring breach and two weeks' during the winter holidays...all paid. It's a great time to schedule annual appointments, take personal/family vacations, and recoup.

    Cons

    Volusia/Flagler are two of the lowest-paid counties in FL, which is reflected in the abysmally low salaries for support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and empower HR to listen to workers' ideas for improving the work environment.
