    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Engineering department head focused on making engineers (or at least the first stage of the process).

    Cons

    Pay is abysmal, but the position is P/T, so that's the reality. One needs at least TWO sections to survive in this area. Teaching philosophy is very supportive of the students, but - in my opinion - coddles them. When these students transfer to University, they are going to meet ugly realities. On the other hand, the engineering department is painfully aware of all this. They do the best they can.

    I worked at Edmonds Community College part-time

    Pros

    Working on campus at EdCC is great for students because of the 'School Comes First' attitude. The Green Team position provides excellent experience for coordinating events, engaging with the general public, improving customer service skills, and of course, learning about sustainability. The atmosphere of the office was nice.

    Cons

    If you aren't taking the bus onto campus, parking can be a bit difficult to find at times. While you can usually match your work schedule to classes, sometimes making an extra trip for a meeting or special event is required.

    Advice to Management

    Sustainability is important. Please continue to support the Green Team and develop new ways to include sustainability in as many facets of EdCC's culture as possible.

    I have been working at Edmonds Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as both a part-time instructor and as part of a curriculum development team (on a different contract). I got to work with a lot of excellent people and to be part of an exciting cutting edge team. My did a great job of ensuring that the teams received the resources that were needed and did a good job of overall support for the group.

    Cons

    Unsure future while working as a part-time instructor. Part-time instructor pay was not the best. There seems to be a high degree of turn-over in the administration.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the turn-over, do more to keep part-time instructors engaged in the college.

    Pros

    Student-centered and focus is on resilience and retention. Strong core of long-term employees and tradition of 'can do it."

    Cons

    Budget subject to Legislative appropriation. Declining enrollments with improved economy. Formula for budget is antiquated and limits capacity to invest in staff and long term planning. Strategic initiatives are flavor of the year and are not strung together or linked well with goals and mission.
