    Saddleback has been a wonderful place to work. Excellent facilities, hardworking students, and the support of my administration has been solid. I have enjoyed working here for the past few years.

    I have been working at Saddleback College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Saddleback recruits faculty from the community and, as in any community college, I would imagine, both allows some freedom to teach according to passions (even if a little unorthodox) and with flexibility.

    Cons

    I was surprised at the amount of bureaucracy a school could generate. Sometime this is very encumbering. Salaries are particularly low compared to similar work at almost any other venue.

    Pros

    You have interaction with students of all ages, faculty, professors, and lifetime learners. I am an NBU but I understand that if a permanent employee, the health insurance is fantastic.

    Cons

    As a large school, there is lots of bureaucracy. It can be difficult to move up. They seem to hire more and more staff without ensuring there is room, and there is staff literally working in closets-turned-semi offices.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and be more loyal to those who have worked hard in their positions.

    Pros

    Your gaining experience while attending school.
    Your helping others while improving your skills (When your able to explain and help others it really means you know your stuff).
    You get access to Schools First FCU, awesome bank.
    Looks amazing on Resumes/CV, always a good conversation starter in Interviews, perfect for SAR questions.

    Cons

    Had to work for free until i became a senior tech to make some money and very little at that.

    Pros

    Very supportive! Great student job. You can get a raise in following semesters. The director is supportive of taking initiatives.

    Cons

    Obviously a student job so no benefits package.
