Positive Outlook

I have been working at Southwest Florida College full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Caring, student centered environment that is moving in the right direction. Academics and administration work well together and make decisions based on what will be best for the students and the right business decision.

Cons

Recently gone through some tough structural and administrative changes, but on the right track for positive growth.

Advice to Management

Continue to develop staff and work towards unity across all campus to the philosophy of the new leadership.

    Pros

    It is a small company where you will know everyone pretty quickly. If you have ADD then the admissions department is good, since most everyone in there has ADD as well.

    Cons

    Mananegment does not care what you did in the past, but only what you are doing now. I will admit that they let me go, but it was without warnign and no reason for it. They will fire anyone and everyone without advance notice. Women are promoted htere quicker then men since the majority of the men in power are sexist against men. The will hold you down and not try and promote anyone if they can get by with it.

    Advice to Management

    The top brass need to realize that if they treaated the sale speople bette rhten they would not have to worry about the constant turnover.


  2. "I been with them for almost three years as an adjunct. School is now Southern Technology College."

    I have been working at Southwest Florida College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Courses are only 10 weeks so get a break more frequently than a school that has 16 week courses. Most of the people who work there are friendly. I've had some very promising students.

    Cons

    Very little chance for advancement to full time and since new limit how many hours an adjunct can teach, dollar amount that can be made is now extremely limited as well.

    Since the school has low standards for who can attend, often get students who are not college material and who do not do well. However, the teachers are expected to get these students through. Other students who do care about good grades are discouraged because of how these bad students are coddled. Subsequently, a lot of the good students leave.

    Additionally, many students don't like the name change and what it implies: a regular college versus a technical school. The school is letting current students keep Southwest Florida College to be on their degrees when they graduate which is good but I predict enrollment will go down for future.

    Management is slow to handle problems/concerns. Requests for improvements are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the standards of qualifications for attending -- a better caliber of student will result in better results and attract more students. If at all possible, let the college go back to having their original name.
