    I have been working at Henry Ford Community College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-operative and helpful department where I teach.

    Cons

    Their HR department is not very good. Borderline incompetent.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smarter people and increase adjunct salaries. You have a lot of potential. You can increase your profile by hiring more qualified personnel who have their degrees from Tier 1 universities rather than the current Tier 3 and 4 degrees. You can do that by increasing salaries. You get what you pay for and students understand that too.

    I worked at Henry Ford Community College full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off.

    Cons

    Favoritism runs rampant at the college. People move up based on who they know and not what they know. Heavily unionized with unions working against each other and not with each other. Egos are high here.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Henry Ford Community College full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great staff, the people are awesome to work with. A solid infrastructure that can be built on in a higher education environment, and room to grow and learn new things.

    Cons

    Most of the IT Staff is contract employees. There is very very little training budget for learning new skills. They don't hire much in house currently. You may be working with someone who is a full time employee doing the same job as you with better benefits, yet less knowledge and more pay. If you're a contract employee they do not give you the option to take free classes though that is what was promised when we were hired in. The Vice Presidents don't listen. The help desk is a joke and causes significantly more issues than it fixes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire your employees from contract to full time within a 90 day period. Shift your priorities to make life easier for students to empower themselves. Hire the staff that's needed. If you don't have the budget, scrape and fight for it, don't roll over.

    I have been working at Henry Ford Community College full-time

    Pros

    Working with students is always interesting. Learn about pop-culture and social media trends that is quickly changing.

    Cons

    The college has little funding for training and does not financially support SSA employees' growth. Most training opportunities must be paid for by the staff member out-of-pocket.

    Pros

    You get to know new students and work with them...
    Tutor them and also ask them about their problems and concerns to help them with it

    Cons

    Well.. let's start at the hardness of the subject you are teaching... I am doing math and it is pretty hard to explain to others

    Advice to Management

    Well if they could add a bit more tutors
