    I worked at Georgia Gwinnett College (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits depending on position. Management cares for employees. Very good place to work.

    Cons

    Hours can be improved upon. Quality of staff can also be improved. Management consistency can also be improved upon.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more quality employees.

    Pros

    Don't get me wrong, the people at GGC are great, the mission and vision is great and being such a small staff means you get the chance to take on a lot of new challenges. Good benefits just like any other university job. Great president.

    Cons

    Small staff means more work for everyone and it doesn't always pay off. Hardy anyone gets raises and there is no real career track. High staff turnover means you will start a project with someone and they will leave the college, leaving you back to square one. Pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Communication between departments is a real problem that needs to be addressed. More would get done if departments didn't keep to themselves.


  3. "Student Accounts Assistant - Easy Job"

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College part-time

    Pros

    The job is super easy. Set your own hours, come in when you want. Nice coworkers. Independent, relaxed, work environment. It is better than nothing. Would recommend it.

    Cons

    It is boring, mundane, confusing work. Cluttered, cold, depressing office. Mostly waiting watching time go by. Things could be done way better but they are not. Would not work here ever.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized. Cooperate better with sister departments. Fight for a renovated office. Don't allow yourself to be pushed around by slackers in other departments.

  5. "Skeleton crew"

    Pros

    Can work from home, decent benefits, plenty of PTO.

    Cons

    Staff has been running on a skeleton crew for several years now. Expected to put in a lot of hours to keep things running. Sometimes it feels like staff are not treated as well as faculty or athletics staff. Good luck trying to find parking.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff, make more staff parking spaces.

    Pros

    They work with your schedule in assigning classes. The job is very independent and no one hassels you for the most part.

    Cons

    Adjunct professors do not receive any type of pay increase regardless of the number of years that they have worked for the university.

    Advice to Management

    Adjunct professors should be given some type for pay increase incentive after being with the university for a certain period of time.

    Pros

    Easy commute, flexible hours, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Administration is somewhat disorganized, lots of meetings, not enough time to conduct research, classes getting bigger every semester

    I have been working at Georgia Gwinnett College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule
    Networking prospects
    Being involved with the school.

    Cons

    -Lots of red tape
    -ignoring students workers needs in departments.
    -too much focus on academics, they think anything not academics should get no budget or say.
    -improper use of student tuitions.
    -very disorganized, last minute events. Wasting students' funding.
    -student workers are students too and should have a right to know what their money is being spent on.
    - No evaluations on how student worker is doing.
    - no response to misconduct

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what students are using in the building. Dining hall and Game room are break places for students. the game room is a therapy for students stressing and wanting to belong on campus. Having broken equipment for years and no funding for it is unacceptable. Ignoring your workers and having budget meetings where they are not even on any of the meeting is disrespectful and sets a tone that students workers aren't valued.

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

    Pros

    You get plenty of time off.
    Newer equipment (when it works, but good luck getting help from IT)

    Cons

    The President does not have much control on his underlings
    They continuously try to re-invent the wheel with lackluster results
    Knee-jerk reactions to everything
    They allow anyone and everyone to attend. If a student can sign a financial aid form, they can attend

    Advice to Management

    Then the herd a bit and find VPs that work better together for the greater good of the school and not individual gains.

    I worked at Georgia Gwinnett College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I will say the vast majority of the people I worked with were great. The students were great to work with and most were enthusiastic about their education. Faculty outside my department were easy to work with and communicate with. There is a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement on the campus for its mission and goals.

    Cons

    The area I worked in was not very supportive of family, children, or single parents. Communication from further up the chain of command was slow to travel to others. Where the department I worked in was going, what the plans were for getting there, how I fit into those plans, and communication on my performance were highly lacking. Upper management left no recourse for filing grievances or seeing anything done to resolve issues.

    Advice to Management

    Support those with children. Understand they may be the only caretaker available. Younger children are more prone to illness when in daycare. Communicate plans for your departments and how those working there fit into these plans.
