I worked at Harrison College full-time

Pros

Harrison has a great mission and most of the people that I worked with were very committed to it. Everything revolved around how to best serve the students and around changing people's lives. This attitude of service extended beyond the job and into company sponsored service projects. If you want to feel like you are making a difference in the world, this is a great place to be.

Cons

At the time I worked there, the organization was going through tremendous change and I don't think they really had a clear vision of what kind of changes were going to produce the results they wanted. They hired a lot of people and laid off a lot of people within the time I worked there.

There wasn't good communication between different areas of the organization. With all the changes going on, often the left hand didn't know what the right was doing. There was desperate need for a better coordination of work between different functional areas.

Advice to Management

More communication, but not in the form of email. Meet with people face-to-face and ensure that different groups are working together toward common goals. Communication and alignment need to be improved.

    I worked at Harrison College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being in the classroom was the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Everything else. When I first started at Harrison College Ken Konesco was President. He preached, "Family, Faith, Health, Job" and lived by it. Then his so took over, the pyramid turned upside down and they no longer cared about your opinion or the quality of student they were enrolling. They also didn't care about their employees any longer.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Jason Konesco, go back to the values that made Harrison College great, and stick to your niche market. You cannot and will never be able to compete with other institutions they way you treat your employees.
