    Pros

    Friendly staff, solid leadership, good planning for the future.

    Cons

    Some financial conditions have prompted them to outsource some administrative functions like IT to outside vendors.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about your people at all levels, especially sub-60K, they are the ones who got you here, not just the high rollers.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Employees genuinely care about students. Cutting edge community college under outstanding leadership (President Starcevich). School very involved in community.

    Cons

    Because Kirkwood is such a great place to work, it can be tough to be promoted in the area you begin working.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Kirkwood Community College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Right on campus so it is a great place for students to work. Also very flexible with students courses.

    Cons

    Management isn't very great. They are doing some cut backs so less hours for students. And can't sit down or do Homework even while the store has absolutely no customers coming in.

    Advice to Management

    Give students the hours they ask for. And let them do Homework since it is a student job!
