    I have been working at Heartland Community College full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and open atmosphere. Receptive to criticism from employees. Fairly tight knit employee groups, as a result you are familiar with people in areas all over the college.

    Cons

    Pay is not always competitive and the ability to move up is restricted. There is not a structure for upward movement in current position, generally need a title change to get a pay bump for experience, education, etc.

    Stop ignoring your secretaries. They make the college go, and yet they are dumped on.

    I worked at Heartland Community College part-time

    Pros

    I loved working at HCC, and I enjoyed the people I got to know in the Adult Education Program. Things happen and change quickly and the staff were always making the most of every situation. I appreciated how professionally they treated their part time staff and the professional development offered throughout the college.

    Cons

    State budget cuts put our department at risk and eliminated parts of the Adult Education summer program. It's no fault of the college, but rather Illinois' tumultuous budget issues.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and keep recognizing the importance of Adult Ed in the community!

    Pros

    Got to build relationships with staff, being in a leadership role, making a difference in the lives of students, and getting very solid in subjects you tutor.

    The pay was low and you couldn't get many hours because of work-study limitations.

    Organizational structure could be streamlined.
