    I worked at Horry-Georgetown Technical College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Students are kind and respectful. They are engaging, making teaching easier on the Instructor

    Cons

    It is an environment of gossip and bureaucracy; nothing like they portray during the interview
    Unclear processes and procedures, they do as they go
    There is a disconnect between upper management, students and the employees as if they are detached.
    Very little salary for the excessive micromanaging

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees and their expertise
    Stop with the deceiving titles
    Include middle management on managerial decisions so that they carry themselves according to their titles
    Embrace change. Don't sweat the small stuff

    Pros

    The coworkers. I always felt like I had support from management and they treated me like family. Lots of opportunities to work on projects and with new technology.

    Cons

    The pay. Raises are hard to come by unless legislated by the state. Make sure you are happy with your initial salary because there probably won't be an opportunity to increase it without taking a different position.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be competitive with salaries to retain good talent.
