    I have been working at San Juan College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers, small campus and lots of programs for employees to grow. The institution is all about student success and our programs reflect that. Pay is competitive and this is definitely the best employer in the 4 corners area.

    Cons

    Some decisions have been controversial and upset a lot of employees. The board and leadership is either not aware or do not care. I hope it is the fact that they do not know. While things have been moving in the correct direction, some issues, such as transparency, have slowed us down and created an environment of paranoia that seems unnecessary.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees concerns and take them seriously. Keep up the good work in improving our wonderful campus.

    I worked at San Juan College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People usually work hard for the college. Good focus on students. Good benefits. Seems like they are bringing back the step increases with salary which will help with morale.

    Cons

    Low pay for the region. Starting to get more raises. We'll see if it sticks. Not sure that the upper management communicates why they make the decisions that they do adequately.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the step increases going. Explain the decisions you're making, especially if you're cutting positions.

    I have been working at San Juan College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and paid-time off, including 2-week Christmas break. Passionate employees with student-driven focus. Employees receive 4 credits a semester (free) for advancing education.

    Cons

    Low pay, especially for starting employees. No incentive for professional staff to receive advanced degrees. Unfair internal hiring practices.

    Advice to Management

    Provide incentive to professional staff for obtaining advanced degrees.

    I have been working at San Juan College full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great Staff and Faculty working here trying to make the place the great College it once was

    Cons

    Administration is very into micro management and plays favorites. Administration ignores the feedback and advice of its Deans, Faculty and Committees and makes decisions based upon their own personal preferences rather than what is best for the College

    Advice to Management

    Stop Micromanaging, be a leader and listen to the smart people around you.
