    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.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Program Director was great to work with. The team that I worked with to produce educational videos were committed, easy to communicate with and worked hard to meet deadlines.

    Cons

    Telecommuting presented some initial problems as was waiting for content from some of the educators. The resistance the project received from some of the participating educators was disappointing, as it left us with less content than we expected.

    Advice to Management

    Should the college attempt this type of enterprise again, please persuade participating educators that online learning does not mean the demise of their positions.
