    I have been working at Northern Essex Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love the students! They have a wide range of abilities and talents, and each is on their own path and timeline. Interacting with them is the best part of my day!

    Cons

    Jobs are being cut and those who stay are getting additional duties on top of what they already do. Being a public state institution means you're at the mercy of the budget and every penny is scrutinized. The place is getting very top-heavy.

    Advice to Management

    The current administration is running this place into the ground. I understand that we're in a recession and belts need to be tightened, but STOP HIRING UPPER MANAGEMENT and cutting student support services (and those with direct student contact) to fund it. And when you do dump all these additional jobs on people, please stop with the 'positive spin' BS you throw out to cover your behind. I realize that dead weight needs to be cut and things done differently moving forward, but be transparent with your employees, communicate truth, stop hiring/promoting your cronies, and please stop promoting people who have no people skills.
