    Pros

    Received a paycheck.
    Enjoyed working with people that were not from Dyersburg.

    Cons

    Strong armed by executives to pass everyone. "If you don't pass them, you will not have a job"
    Never change anything, we have always done it that way.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason this college has the lowest graduation rate in the state. No leadership, poorly managed.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    state funded position, so retirement package is good;
    some nice coworkers;
    decent opportunities to network with people outside of the college.

    Cons

    president is an extreme, micro-manager;
    "spy" culture --- no loyalties among peers;
    moderate turnover.

    Advice to Management

    This place will never improve until the the president retires. She is a micro-manager who has no patience for employees' commitments (such as families) outside the job. Once you get on her bad side, pack your bags. Your time is short. Vindictive, cruel.
