    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Northampton Community College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Friendly staff, great health benefits, 401K, flexible supervisor, work/life balance, most staff have genuine interest in student success

    Cons

    Management is disloyal to loyal employees, don't promote within, low pay, very little room for growth, clerical staff is boxed-in and stereotyped ,focus is on numbers but don't want to invest

    Advice to Management

    Don't box-in your clerical staff, be inclusive of part-timers, part-timers should be valued and given some benefits (at least paid bereavement leave)
