    Health insurance and retirement benefits. Room for advancement and raises are disseminated properly. Treated like a human being by higher up.

    The only way to add to your class list is by commuting to other campuses, or wait for another instructor in your department to leave.

    No advice.

    I have been working at Front Range Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Front Range Community College is a place where all employees work for the good of the students! The atmosphere here is one of learning and collaboration. Overall, it is one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say about Front Range Community College as a whole. There is a saying that most people leave their current position because of their immediate supervisor. Yes, that happens here...but you can move on to another position within, which is a good thing working for the State and FRCC.

    Advice to Management

    Make your supervisors accountable. Listen to subordinates when they discuss their supervisors - without retaliation. Let subordinates send in questionnaires on their supervisors anonymously if possible and listen to what they have to say. FRCC overall is awesome, but I know many unhappy employees because of their immediate supervisors inadequacies as a supervisor!!

    I worked at Front Range Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can set your own hours, as long as you work a minimum number of hours per week. Students are great to work with - what a variety!!

    Cons

    Pay could be better, but who wouldn't say that about their jobs??

    Advice to Management

    My supervisor was the best. My only advice that management would be to keep people like her around!!

    I have been working at Front Range Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    At FRCC people have tremendous respect for one another, and everyone's input is heard. Most people are deeply committed to the mission of our college, and is motivated to help students and each other any way they can. The current movement to become a "Pathways" college is especially inspiring. It's refreshing to see a college change quickly and prudently.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility and pay isn't great. However no one works in education for the pay!

    I have been working at Front Range Community College part-time

    Pros

    Small classes allow more one on one instruction with students.
    No committees to serve on or grant acquisition required for employment

    Cons

    If class isn't halfway registered with students by attendance day, instructor only paid on a by-student basis....making it guilt driven to still teach class barely break even wages.
    Part time employees don't have access to health care benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Turnover would be lower if instructors were compensated better (with guaranteed base for class prep) and have option to purchase health care benefits even if below federal 30 hour employee classification.

    Glad you enjoyed your time here! It sounds like you may have meant to give more than a two star review - can you check and maybe adjust the rating if I'm right?
