    Pros

    Great educational benefits package. Above average medical benefits. Great Vacation accrual if your salary

    Lots of interoffice politics, outdated and inefficient helpdesk/IT practices. Seperation of work and home life leaves something to be desired.

    I have been working at Renton Technical College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice benefits and good compensation packages, if you manage to get hired for a FT position. The people are all wonderful to work with, and the students are great, as well!

    Cons

    There's some slow turn-around in the HR department. Also, it's really hard to get a FT position here, which means you don't qualify for all the benefits that a Full-Timer gets.

    Innovation and funding limited because of being a part of State governance

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Renton Technical College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intellectual freedom. Students provide a constant influx of "new" coworkers. Curriculum development is developed by the instructors so, it is easily adapted and updated. You can hide and get your work done with little interference.

    Cons

    No raises unless the state government says so. They are rare. Management is too hands-off. Leadership is not very transparent. It is hard to know how and why things are done. The unions have no teeth and leadership lacks focus.

    Advice to Management

    Cut programs before you cut staffing. Student service support is being restored (2013) but the burnout factor is high.


  9. "Very fulfilling"

    Pros

    It is very fulfilling to teach and rewarding. I worked with professional employees and it was an intellectual growth around such diversity of subjects taught.

    Cons

    The only feedback recieved was from the students, which is only OK if you don't mind working without direct supervision and lead.

    Advice to Management

    More communication and development of the staff.

    It is a little bit far from where I live.
