    I have been working at Garden City Community College full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity for Advancement, Free Tuition, Passes to all athletic events, and holiday and time off.

    Cons

    Very reactive versus being proactive to issues.
    Behind the times with computer software and processes.
    Not willing to change much.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive and try going outside your comfort zone. Maybe try paperless processes.
