    Pros

    Flexible hours around schedule, able to do schoolwork and etc during slow hours, friendly coworkers, fun and engaging work environment

    I have been working at Gaston College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The greatest benefit of working here is being able to receive very good benefits. The benefits package is very accommodating with various options for everyone. The benefits package is only one of the reasons I am still here.

    Cons

    Nice company however very little room for growth or career transition. A lot of focus is not on developing or cross functional training that perhaps could help departments and employees as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Consider more conferences, training and development for all employees.

    Pros

    9-month work schedule, 30 hours/week, friendly staff, colleagues willing to help, benefits are excellent

    Cons

    like all state institutions there are a lot of initiatives - just wait them out and they'll pass only to make room for a new initiative!

    Advice to Management

    stay focused on educating students and worry less about state funding
