    I worked at Edmonds Community College full-time

    Pros

    There are a number of gifted and dedicated employees at the College who work to improve the system for students, faculty, and staff. The goals are meaningful and the impact of your work can (generally) be seen.

    Cons

    With an organization this large, there is difficulty in crossing departmental units and budgets to get programs off the ground that will truly help students and the larger community.
    The workload is large; the pay is not (typical at state institutions).
    There are some difficulties with management in terms of follow-through on promises whether written or verbal which was ultimately the reason I left.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Small campus, good staff, decent pay and benefits

    Cons

    Faculty if very self entitled. Administration doesn't care about the little guys only themselves. Union work so you may or may not get a raise. Supervisors are very incompetent, not just in my department. Parking is terrible, good luck finding a place on campus sometimes.

    Cons

    Wish I can transfer to become a regular full time after graduation.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College full-time

    Pros

    The students tell me they feel EdCC is warm and welcoming. New students are often met with a smile. The majority of the staff are there for the right reasons and this shows in their work. People feel cared for and staff work to treat people with respect.

    Cons

    Typical Cons in Higher Ed:
    Too many interim positions has led to morale problems. But, people wanting to work in Higher Ed today do not always stay well beyond 1-2 yrs in their positions, for reasons I believe related to cost of living growth or desire for personal growth. On the other end, people who have been employed for a long time have trouble accepting new leadership and changes, which may also affect new employees deciding to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Improve interim terms and provide clearer timeline expectations.
