    I have been working at Los Angeles Community College District full-time

    Pros

    The collegiate education environment has its perks. Working for a good cause, casual dress, all in a positive environment. The Community College District knows their mission and sticks to it, and that filters all the way from the top to the bottom.

    Cons

    I've been around quite some time, and every year it seems as though there are more and more rules, and more and more red tape. It's not just the college, but true in any environment. It's just that the colleges seem to understand more and more the need for the dollar and have embraced a corporate mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Remember we're in the "people" business. Everyone knows about the business of education, but keep it subtle; don't scream it.

    I have been working at Los Angeles Community College District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package 100% paid for by the district. If you retire vested from LACCD you will get lifetime benefits.

    Cons

    LACCD does not operate like a private company so the challenge is to stay current and update on trending and new business practices. They are slow to change due to the older population. There are also 9 unions and change can be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to learn and progress with the changing business environment.

    I have been working at Los Angeles Community College District part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been here since March. The environment is really nice and I really enjoy the people that I work with. The building is always clean and the security here are really nice and always on the lookout for danger. Working here is a really great experience with some really great perks. I always feel safe knowing that we have armed security just in case a crazy gets in. The building is located in Downtown and there are a bunch of vagrants and solicitors that you have to steer clear from. Watch out for the panhandling people. They do not take no for an answer. The building has a great bunch of people, well the people that I encounter on a daily basis. The schedule I have allows me to be a full time student while still being able to work. I would definitely recommend this place to any college student or professional who is looking to start their career.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Good pay, good downtown location.

    Cons

    "Other duties as assigned" will usually be the case.

    Advice to Management

    You didn't listen then; why would it be different now?
