    I have been working at Long Beach City College as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    LBCC is a great community with lots of diversity. People are encouraged to get higher degrees and the college supports them.

    Cons

    People aren't always promoted because of skill or contribution. It can be hard to work with the professors who are a clique.

    I worked at Long Beach City College as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very informal & easy going atmosphere. I loved my students and everyday was rewarding.

    Cons

    LACK OF ORGANIZATION: Files were mislabeled or weren;t labeled at all; staff worked off of a scattered shared filing system which made it difficult to find info. LACK OF PROPER COMMUNICATION: Director never answered my calls or emails and she didn't listen messages either. She seemed to communicate only through text messaging. I often received 3-5 text msgs after work where she'd be asking for info that made for a lengthly response. LACK OF SPACE: I often found 1-3 students sitting at my desk because there wasn't anywhere for them to do their studies. Very annoying but I'm always accomodating.

    Advice to Management

    Expand and communicate better. Answer calls & emails and don't text asking for info that requires a long response.

    I worked at Long Beach City College (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Amazing faculty and staff at the ITDC.
    Easy workload depending on what time of the term is currently was, but certainly nothing a full time student couldn't handle.

    Cons

    One that comes to mind would be the lack of a consistent schedule of what work needs to be completed. Often found myself coming in some days without anything to do.

    Advice to Management

    Continue treating employees as you do but make an attempt to ensure that they always have something on their schedule when they arrive at work.

    Pros

    Benefits, camraderie, very stable if you're in the union - but overall job security is good.

    Cons

    Very politically driven environment - it's not about the students it's about who in the city of local governments want - so they can do favors for the college someday.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so full of yourselves.
