    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Pennsylvania College of Technology part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The management are very accommodating to class schedules and other school related activities in relation to work schedules.

    Cons

    Not the highest pay, but is something.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep hiring both students and full-time in order to accommodate finals and midterm schedules.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, one of the best paying computer programmer jobs in the area.

    Cons

    Recent changes in benefits have made it pretty good instead of awesome. Lack of communication from management about employee compensation changes make for some weirdness.

    Pros

    Working at Penn College is very rewarding, the students create a lot of energy and the benefits are wonderful. It is a great place to work and earn your degree!

    Cons

    It is difficult to compete with other internal candidates when hoping to move into another position within the institution.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Pennsylvania College of Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with students and other employees in a fast paced setting

    Cons

    Never felt appreciated by management, never discreet with confidential matters, and employee evaluations made you feel like crap when any other place I have ever worked believed in pumping you up, not making you feel mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe everything you hear. Sometimes the biggest complainer is the one that needs the most attention focused on them, for their lack of team effort.

    Pros

    Administration supports profs, listens to scheduling requests.

    Cons

    The town where the college is located has lousy amenities.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Pennsylvania College of Technology full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great group of fellow employees.

    Cons

    Promotion is difficult. Unless you are one of the "selected" ones, forget about advancing. Many positions are never announced. Inconsistent practices and procedures. Some people receive special treatment. Too much favoritism. It's great for those who are liked or are removed from the politics. Consistently eliminating positions. Use fear of losing one's job as a motivator.

    Advice to Management

    This could be a great place to work if not for the favoritism and politics.

    I have been working at Pennsylvania College of Technology (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work in dining services, so my previous experience has been in restaurants. working at Penn College I love the fact that I do not have to put up with the normal harassment that goes on at most restaurants. there is no sexual harassment from cooks, no catty nastiness from management. the management team are all very team conscious and handle problems that do arise very quickly and respectfully. most of the staff is working moms just trying to have a good day.

    Cons

    There is very little hope for full time employment & benefits.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Pennsylvania College of Technology (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    being around the students is fun, they keep you young. Benefits such as free college for your children is a plus

    Cons

    Top management has no idea what middle management is doing. It all who you know, not your job performance that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Work all shifts to know whats going on in you place of business. Talk to employees
