    I worked at Harford Community College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you are full-time you get free tuition. Most of the people who work there are very friendly. The campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    The cops are terrible. HR doesn't care about anything except their own agendas. The board of trustees are collectively a million years old, so the way they run the college matches that.

    Advice to Management

    PAY MORE ATTENTION TO THE COPS!!! When HR was notified of law being broken nothing was done.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, enthusiastic co-workers, proximity to surrounding town, support from upper administration, superior facilities, athletic department willing to spend money to improve

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations, uncooperative coaches, micromanaging athletic director, undercompensation for number of hours worked, favoritism in the workplace, not enough staff to meet expectations

    Advice to Management

    In order to give the sports information manager the best chance to successfully accomplish his job, be sure that all staff members are on the same wavelength. A sports information manager's work is directly influenced by the information that he is given, or not given.
