    I worked at North Central College (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Awesome non-medical benefits, nice work, life balance, people are friendly and welcoming. Discounts on sporting events, performances and college tuition.

    Cons

    Because it is a not for profit, salaries are extremely low and medical expenses are on the higher side. Work load is very heavy during certain times of the year

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees. Cross train employees when the employee is interested in other aspects of the workings of the college. Offer discounted linches.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus, most faculty and staff are very pleasant to work with, benefits and perks are nice.

    Cons

    Composition is way below average unless you are a Director or above. Some of these Directors and those in higher positions, do not act in the best interest of the college, or it's students or staff.

    Advice to Management

    While running a fine tuned business is important, you have to remember that the Students, Faculty and Staff are the heart of NCC. If they are unhappy, then the business is failing, and the numbers will soon show that.
