    I worked at Miami Dade College full-time

    Pros

    Miami Dade College offers good benefits, flexibility, and time off for full time employees. Some of employees and supervisors were very nice, and it was a pleasure assisting the students. The school is also very active in the community and offers various programs to help students grow and succeed.

    Cons

    Although it was a pleasure working with my colleagues and supervisor, some employees were extremely rude, unprofessional, and a bit incompetent. It is difficult to assist students when you have to work with people who have “checked out” on the students and spend more time gossiping then doing their job. Some departments have a lack of direction and guidance, which makes it difficult for employees to function and provide the best service to students.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your processes, get rid of redundant steps, and make information more accessible and transparent for students and employees. Ensure that employees have guidance and procedures that will allow them to be on the same page so they can provide accurate information to students.
