    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Very easy, relaxed, good benefits, (almost) free class, decent pay

    Cons

    No incentives so nobody wants to improve, everyone is complacent--you will become like this.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are not in control of any of my complaints, so I don't really have any advice to give
