Negative Outlook

I worked at Pacific Oaks College part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

the small size, proximity to DT Pasadena if on campus, some staff members are very warm, free parking lot if on campus, easy access to technology.

Cons

management, lack of clear organization, too many faculties are changing a lot, very little to no control over syllabus, difficult to manage conflicts.

Advice to Management

may wont to try to value all staff members.

    Pros

    The location of the school is great. You are right next to downtown Pasadena and their wonderful resturants and places to shop.

    Cons

    There is no room for advancement. They would tell people that they are being promoted and give them new job titles but people were forced to keep the same pay. The school was bought by the The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. TCS has just recently fired many employees and Pacific oaks has fired many of their employees also. Many new people were hired but are not qualified for their job. They run the school like telemarketing business not like a place school

    Advice to Management

    Try to bring up employee moral. Many people are not happy with their pay or benefits but there is other ways to make employees happy. Bring back the company parties to help bring moral and hire people who are capable of during their job.

    Pros

    In hopes that new blood can keep this great institution afloat, bring it back to the incredible history of many years gone by.

    Cons

    Unfortunately for the past 14+ yrs this incredible school has gone through some tragic transitions. The past admin dragged it through the mud. The future of this once great institution feels very unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Look back at 1990 when this school was shining, rich and busy with students trying to enroll. Bring back this foundation, this vision, this incredible model for early education that was known throughout the country.
