    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Reduced tuition, help others succeed in pursuing education. Flexible work schedule. Close-knit employee community.

    Cons

    Low pay/benefits, major budget cuts/restrictions. Language barrier with students. Low language skills/education requirements for student enrollment into critical medical care programs.

    Raise requirements/qualifications for students entering medical nursing fields. Stricter language/communication requirements for students entering medical/care giving programs.

    Pros

    Working in a learning environment was fantastic. I loved seeing the excitement in the students as well as coworkers as the students achieved their educational goals to improve their lives.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College full-time

    Pros

    The Application Development Services team is very good. The network department is a work in progress.

    Cons

    Edmonds is a small college and the compensation is lower than other community colleges and much lower than the general IT industry.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be based on actual employee performance and contribution rather than just longevity.

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

    Pros

    If your are currently a student at EdCC, there is little better you could do than tutor. I suggest tutoring the subject that you are interested in continuing your education for. Nothing helps you understand a subject like teaching it.

    Cons

    The role of the tutor is not always well defined - this is potentially problematic if a tutor is over-eager to help a student, or if the student is looking for an inappropriate level of assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Clear up the limits of what tutors can and cannot help with. Also, consider adding more group sessions as this can give people interested in education experience.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful teachers, administrators, & staff who were all really supportive and helpful. They have a lead teacher who will help you prepare for everything, from the syllabus and curriculum, to lesson plans and activities!

    Cons

    The shared common work room was a new concept for me. Although I fully understand why they need that (so many teachers throughout the day and no way to provide personal computers for everyone), it was annoying and time consuming to put all of your stuff away and take it out before/after every class (if they can find you room in a cupboard). Also, some computers may or may not be actually hooked up correctly to printers, etc. Other than that, I felt attendance was an issue (perhaps because it is a community college and not a university?) more so than other places I've taught. Next time, I would be stricter.

    Pros

    Amazing management, people, and everyone is passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee it's hard to know when/what classes you are teaching until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the younger generation and their ideas of making a department better.

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

    Pros

    Very laid-back, easygoing work environment. My supervisor was very adapt at both running her department but not over-working or stepping on the staff.

    Cons

    Pay was low at the time, but it was part-time student work. I felt like there was no room for growth without first finishing my studies.

    Advice to Management

    No real advice here, everything seemed to run like a well-oiled, if large, machine.

    Pros

    The job is easy, positive environment, great work balance. Lots of vacation time and I am free to use it whenever I want. That is Great!!

    Cons

    Procedures and computer software are antiquated. Circa 1988. They still have documents that need to be “typed”
