    I have been working at Santa Rosa Junior College full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, employee sponsored health benefits that covers up to family of 4 with no deduction from paycheck. The retirement is a state pension system which is uncommon and really good. Employee development opportunities, health and wellness program. 14 holidays a year!

    Cons

    Since its a state job, you get paid once a month, tough if you don't know how to manage your money, but if you do then its nice to pay all your bills and then have the rest for spending money.

    Advice to Management

    I had a great manager, but I heard not so great things about others, its a hit and miss.

    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.
