    I worked at Orange Coast College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very low stress. People are very down to Earth, and people are extremely open about their worldviews. District IT staff is amazing!

    Cons

    No benefits for doing exceptional work. No motivation to due above and beyond. And when you do it might ruffle a couple of coworkers. People are afraid to take chances that might better assist the organization or can assist students.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage people within the organization in order to make the college a better place. Build up the unique staff that you have invested in. Lead by example and have clear and concise goals in others. Hold them to the standards you hold yourself. Provide them with the resources they need to succeed and invest in them as much as they have invested in you.
