Pros

slower pace, people friendly, plenty of interactions with people, especially with students. Can make a difference in the lives of students.

Cons

Not so dynamic, somewhat inefficient

Advice to Management

Have to run it more efficiently so as to lower tuitions for students. It rises all the time.

    Pros

    Public service and job security.

    Cons

    Politics and "siloing" of resources can be overwhelming. The institution loves to always take "low bid" and usually then finds the product/service does not meet needs.

    Advice to Management

    Do things right or not at all. Finish what is started before moving on to the next project(s).


  2. "Poor management"

    I worked at Portland Community College full-time

    Pros

    Benefits were good and affordable.

    Cons

    Management at all levels in does not support AP level employees adequately. Despite HR hiring processes, nepotism is alive and well (a campus president's partner was hired over more qualified candidates). There are also a lot of interdepartmental power struggles that reduce overall efficiency and often put students in difficult situations.
