    I have been working at Fortis College full-time

    Pros

    Leadership, and staff, classrooms, and resources and benefits

    Cons

    We need more evening classes to accommodate work/school balance for single parents.
    Have more companies like Opportunity Inc to give grants to those who really need the help. The individuals who are living in poverty should have more outlets rather than one source so that they can balance work and school.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to press forward to build solid connections within the community.

    I worked at Fortis College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Faculty care about the students and are dedicated

    Cons

    Poor management that cannot be trusted, no raises for years, expect employees to work 60+ hours a week with no positive perks. Push ethical boundaries and are more interested in profit than a quality education for the students.

    Advice to Management

    If you want better outcomes, treat your employees with respect and value their expertise. Stop hiring bully VP's who micro manage in areas outside of their expertise.
