    Pros

    The one best thing is having the freedom to create your own intellectual design for teaching studio art and music classes.

    Cons

    Mostly scheduling hourly weekly music lessons as students schedules change and or drop classes later in the semester due to financial issues.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to keep employing teachers that will have the opportunity to apply an intellectual freedom approach to their classes.

    I have been working at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy my work and working with my co-workers. I don't have to be worried about working weekends or evenings.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to watch as I see the administration and others use taxpayer funds in ways that I think are wasteful or unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Show more concern about our lowest paid employees (housekeeping & grounds) and pay them an honest wage so they won't have to work two or three jobs.

    The best reason to work here is, the interaction between students currently and applying new students.

    Pros

    The higher up administrators are excellent. There really is a great attitude of helping people succeed with their dreams, which is the point of any institute of higher learning. Some newer hires have really made some great improvements, and it'll be good to see more of that as time goes on.

    Cons

    The different departments are really separated, and communication seems to be a problem. After a middle-management level, something breaks down. People who are just there to get a paycheck are rampant, and it's frustrating when you see so many small things that could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    It's okay to set reasonable expectations and then if people don't meet them, it's okay to have some sort of repercussions for that. It's okay to fire people who are truly ineffectual.
