  4. "Great people, tough place"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    I worked at Maricopa County Community College District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There isn't another community college district in all of Maricopa County, so people with a similar mission gravitate towards this employer.

    Cons

    Unfortunately a complete lack of transparency, and hires are primarily thru the 'friends and family' program. There are budget, vision and morale problems that plague the institution - with no time to address any of them.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your egos at the door and work collaboratively to solve the problems you're facing. You will put yourself out of business if you aren't open to change.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Great vacation, and sick time benefits.

    Cons

    No raises, have to move to different colleges and change departments to make more money. Salaries for staff are not good. Dept chairs can pass their work to others.

    Wake up

    I have been working at Maricopa County Community College District part-time

    Pros

    The college district provides many ways of supporting faculty and staff development. Each college has its own culture, and I enjoy being part of the community where I teach. There are many wonderful, passionate staff and faculty that work for the district.

    Cons

    Adjunct faculty are so valuable to the educational process; while there is great appreciation for what we do, it would be nice to have pay and perks that reflect that.
