    Very nice people work at the Shuhaw Hall Mathlab! A supportive group of friends. Flexible hours, and someone can always cover for you if something comes up.

    No school-wide benefits other than pay.

    I have been working at Santa Rosa Junior College part-time

    Pros

    Nice-looking campus located in wine country. Many qualified, dedicated staff and instructors. Lots of programs and community involvement. Amazing benefits for full-time instructors--many "earn" about $100K annually in retirement--and full-time instructors and staff pay very little for their generous benefits.

    Cons

    Obsession with buildings to the detriment of students and staff. Constantly trolling for money in the community and planning for growth even though enrollment is shrinking. Poor counseling process--insufficient access, guidance, etc. for student success. This was once a strength; now raising money and getting community recognition seems more important than academic excellence. Now a Hispanic-serving institution, and many students still struggling with English; however, most instructors still monolingual.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on students and student success, not on buildings! If you must build, build, build your monuments, hire enough people to clean and maintain buildings. Exercise more oversight on the construction process, don't waste money rebuilding shoddy construction (Race, Maggini, etc.). The grounds used to be beautiful but now look somewhat neglected. Get rid of duplicate administration in Petaluma and hire people who actually DO something constructive.

    I worked at Santa Rosa Junior College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Works around school schedule if you're a student, unless it's full-time. Friendly staff.

    Cons

    Student employees don't really make anything, just barely a dollar over the minimum wage. I get it, it is to get experience. I've known people who had full time jobs and they love it.
