Negative Outlook

I worked at Palm Beach State College part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Clean, safe,helpful work environment. Professors are very caring and helpful.

Cons

There is a poor ratio of full time professors versus Adjunct instructors. 60% of college are adjunct employees. HR department responds to job inquiries very slowly.

Advice to Management

They need to evaluate the efficiency of there HR employees. Disability accomodations not provided to all employees, however the school was very good about providing these accomodations to students. Diversity in employees not well represented in there full time professors.

    Pros

    Great employees and a a flexible supervisor. Opportunities to learn new programs and continuous great professional development opportunities. The most enjoyable part of the job was having contact with students on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Advancement isn't something that happens often either and the college has no qualms hiring from outside their current staff. There is no seniority when it comes to a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Good people don't leave their jobs because of the task at hand, it's because of bad managers

    I have been working at Palm Beach State College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic and motivated faculty and staff who for the most part seek to collaboratively work toward common goals

    Cons

    Large institution that does not deliberately cultivate the career opportunties and professional development of its employees

    Advice to Management

    Expand the professional development department and give it the power to help employees network so they are known entity when applying for promotions and other positions
