    I have been working at Fox Valley Technical College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Helpful co-workers and engaging community. FVTC has very good benefits; although I do not purchase the insurance benefits. The Deans are fair and easy to work for.

    Cons

    None. If I had to list one area, it could be more communication from the Deans.

    I worked at Fox Valley Technical College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I never had an issue with my Work, co-workers, or my bosses. Everyone was pretty supportive.

    Cons

    My only regret was losing a grant, so they could not continue my employment there. They did not renew my contract. Job security could be better.

    Pros

    Opportunities for personal growth while helping others. The people strive to make everyone successful, students and staff alike.

    Cons

    My job ends when this school term ends. I am a recent graduate and will miss the experience of helping students follow their path to a better future.

    Advice to Management

    Treating students as a vital part of your workforce is one of your greatest strengths. Keep that as a priority.

    Pros

    I love tutoring math at the TLC at FVTC. I gives me a chance to help other people. It is very relaxing and helps me get a chance to actually make a little extra money while I am going to school. Everyone else that works at the TLC are awesome and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The only con I can even really see is that I can only get so many hours due to the fact that it is all paid for by grants.

    Advice to Management

    None. I think it is very well set up.

    Pros

    Fox Valley Technical College has great beneftis including tuition reimbursement for career advancement, excellent health insurance and a great retirement package! They also have a very positvie, very relaxed enviromnment. I got along with my co-workers very well and had a great working relationship with my boss. They understood when I needed time off and I was never hassled about it. I was encouraged to train myself to move into other positions within the company.

    Cons

    They are closed for the weeks of July 4th and Christmas for the holiday season. For people just looking for time off, this is great, but for people that need the pay, it's hard. You can use your vacation to be paid for the time off, but then you lack the freedome to take vacation when you want it.

    Advice to Management

    nothing

    Pros

    The people at FVTC are great, you can tell that most of them love their jobs. Job stability is huge here, many people are "lifers". Great benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Most likely need to use your PTO when the school shuts down.
