    Pros

    It is a very small liberal art college. The working condition is pretty relaxing and family oriented. It would be a good place for someone to get teaching experience before moving up.

    Cons

    The quality of students is pretty bad. Most of students can only understand middle school math. The working conditions were the worst.

    Advice to Management

    Professors are stacked in tiny cubes that small badly, yet these so called administration occupy nice single clean rooms.

    I worked at Lane College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, really close knit company. You have to apply yourself to progress, lots of travel included also. I really enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    The health benefits are expensive because most of the staff is old, the chances of promotion are slim unless someone gets fired.

    I worked at Lane College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Do not work during while students are out for Christmas, Spring and Summer breaks.

    Cons

    Only get a raise whenever minimum wage is increased. no pay (can't draw unemployment) while not working during breaks, verbal & physical attacks by students. If students say it happen, it did and you risk being terminated without defending yourself.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter, they don't care!

    Pros

    Lane is very commited to respect for the individual. Family and Health issues are an emphasized priority. I believe that they would like to help the economy by offering employment to many people if they they had funding and necessary work.

    Cons

    Not enough projects to keep temporary employees around longer.
    Sad to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work ..you are a fine group of individuals. I hope all the best to you and your familys. God Bless

    Pros

    Great to work with students who really need helps and assistance in many aspects. If you love teaching and enjoy helping, this is a great place for you.

    Cons

    Seems there are administrative management problems. The office spaces for professors are small and usually several professors have to share once small dirty office without a telephone.

    Advice to Management

    They are doing some jobs that fit the College's needs, it will be difficult to make any changes in the leadership team.
