    I have been working at Gateway Technical College part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great staff, fantastic equipment, motivated students

    Cons

    Training was a little lacking, but after the first semester I was up to speed. Technology is acceptable but could be improved

    Advice to Management

    More mentoring for new instructors. Make it easier to find equipment.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Gateway Technical College full-time

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and WI Retirement System is the best state-funded retirement system in the nation. Generous time off.

    Cons

    The organization is very top heavy, and oftentimes staff are treated like children in which management does not know enough to make well thought-out decisions or respect the opinions of seasoned staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, show support, promote people with brains rather than those who kiss your backside.

    I have been working at Gateway Technical College part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Nice computer labs.

    Cons

    Students are disrespectful to instructors. Students expect you to do their work for them and will become rude if they are graded fairly. There is far too much work expected of adjuncts for the small pay compensated. If you have ten or more years to wait for a full time opening, it may be alright, but most people do not have time to invest a decade or more of their lives in the hopes of maybe being hired full time.

    Advice to Management

    Start siding with your instructors. Stand by your rules and do not take hearsay complaints at face value.

      Pros

      Open door policy with management.

      Cons

      No overall cons - you make your job what it is. Sure there might be some decisions I disagree with you - but get over it!

        Neutral Outlook

        I worked at Gateway Technical College part-time

        Pros

        You learn a lot and most the people are nice. Not as much pressure as a for-profit corporation.

        Cons

        Management hires friends from outside. No room to advance. Low salary for part-time non-salary employees.

        Advice to Management

        Your ideas stink. Don't act so high and mighty. It's just a school. The state has to give you money otherwise you'd be broke running a company like that.

        Negative Outlook

        I worked at Gateway Technical College full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Decent pay. Comp time. State benefits.

        Cons

        Many are there just for the paycheck. Good luck finding an instructor on their respective campus when their class is not in session. And, they completely disappear during the summer, not bothering to respond to emails or phone calls from or regarding the college.

        Advice to Management

        The president needs to focus on the college and not sit on dozens of Boards extraneous to the institution.
