    I have been working at Front Range Community College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great faculty (adjunct and full time), Good hands on experience in a various departments as a work study, encouraging and enriching environment to work in while pursuing a degree. Overall, just a wonderful community of diverse individuals who are there to help each other succeed.

    Cons

    The cafeteria could be better (need more vegetarian/vegan options), would also be nice if work study was not limited to 20 hours a week. Perhaps look into expanding the amount of work study positions within individual departments (i.e. Chemistry, biology, geology, physics, astronomy) to compensate for an ever expanding science program at FRCC

    Advice to Management

    Hold more open forum sessions to allow work study students and staff to get better acquainted with one another. This could help to encourage healthy dialogues with in departments as well as across discipline.

    I believe in FRCC and I believe management is doing a great job! I feel connected and represented. With the increase in living in Colorado, I think it would be nice to see a re-evaluation of salaries.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    There are absolutely no pros for this organization, steer clear

    Cons

    Abusive and hostile work environment. Committee selections are based on a desired outcome with absolutely no goal of objectivity and independence which is why they are called bobblehead committees. If you voice an independent opinion you are accused of failure to collaborate. Do not trust human resources staff.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Make sure curriculum rigor is maintained and not simplified just to increase graduation rates.
