    I worked at Lakeland College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    co-workers, grounds are pretty, history of the school is interesting, benefits standard, nice woods to walk through during summer, spring and fall.

    Cons

    High turnover, business department run horribly by COO, very difficult drive in during bad winter weather, not enough parking spaces for all employees so you have to sometimes park on the other side of the university and walk across the entire campus, low moral due to management in some cases and stress is high

    Advice to Management

    Re-organize responsibilities and put somebody in charge with people skills instead of number skills. Treat your subordinates with respect and it might be a better place to work.

    I worked at Lakeland College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lakeland is an excellent college to work for. The support staff is excellent and very helpful if you have any questions or problems to resolve.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons to report. The staff does an excellent job on helping the instructor achieve the goals and objects of the college.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent job and continue to listen to both the students and instructors in order to make this a first class college.

    Pros

    There are many very intelligent, high-quality, hard working faculty and staff who are committed to the mission and the students. Pay is fair.

    Cons

    Recently, like many small colleges, the school has been facing serious financial challenges which has led to some people losing their jobs or people leaving. Progress under these conditions is hard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on communication with the college community. Make sure as many smart and creative people are included when trying to solve problems.

    I worked at Lakeland College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The interaction with every student and meeting new people every day was a thrill. It taught me different social lessons daily!

    Cons

    Mainly the hours and compensation being that it was a on campus job I really did not worry about it.

    Advice to Management

    Teach skills that would later on be developed in the work force.
