    Pros

    At KCTCS I work with a supportive staff that care about student's success.

    Cons

    The pay for adjuncts isn't great. But that isn't just KCTCS, it runs rampant in academia.

    I have been working at Kentucky Community and Technical College System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most people are in it for the students

    Cons

    The system is too controlling of the colleges, way to burdened with administrative processes creating inefficiency band frustration. Low salaries means tons of turnover. Misleading HR practices. One of the worst funded Higher ed institutions in the US. Takes to long to make meaningful progress.

    Pros

    Great higher ed institution with an awesome mission. I love the people that I work with.

    Cons

    Like all things in higher ed things here move SLOWLY! Also, they don't promote from within because they don't want to lose positions but end up doing that anyway b/c their employees leave

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within and cut the hierarchy!

    I have been working at Kentucky Community and Technical College System full-time

    Pros

    The campuses are clean but outdated.

    Cons

    Advancement is non-existent. 37.5 hour work week is a myth. Each year inflation takes more from your wage than the occasional wage increase. Wage increases are not performance based. It is a great place to work if you just want to get by with a minimal investment or commitment.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advance. Management is aware of the situation but simply does not care.
