    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Reading Area Community College full-time

    Pros

    Low cost college degree, most employees really like their job and feel they are doing good for students. Serious students do very well.

    Cons

    Very negative environment, departments are run (with a few exceptions) very poorly, money is spent on frivolous things but the important items are left to rot. Student and employee turnover is very high.

    Advice to Management

    Watch where you spend your money, and who is spending it. It doesnt seem that the business office controls any of that. I believe the business manager position turns over quickly.

    Cons

    The administration is changing all the time; there is no vision for future development; there is little respect to faculty; recently, the morale and overall environment are getting worse, making the college an unpleasant work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Have a long-term plan for sustainability and development and trust the faculty's expertise.
