    I worked at Milwaukee Area Technical College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some really good people who work here who enjoy helping students

    Cons

    Communication between departments is horrible. There are a lot of lazy employees that don't care and don't work for the good pay they receive. Bad managers get shuffled off to other departments instead of being let go.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of managers who cause turnover in certain areas of the college. Knowledgeable, long time employees leave because of micro-management and just plan horrible managers. People want to be treated like adults and you lose good workers due to poor supervision!

      Pros

      -Friendly and positive atmosphere -Rewarding work -Staff is willing to help with any question or issue you might have

      Cons

      Not really a con, but the different schools within MATC expect that you are ready to hit the ground running and to do a good job in the role.

      Advice to Management

      Keep being transparent like you have been and put the trust in the employees to get the job done!
