    major learning experience

    Cons

    Management is scattered across 4 campuses

    Advice to Management

    Check in with some of your lower staff once in awhile. Setup some meetings get their feed back. Many times we see things that.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, outgoing work environment, lots of diversity in the job. While career opportunities within this area are limited, there are a lot of opportunities available college wide. I really enjoyed working for Seneca, overall. It was really interesting to work with a wide variety of academic programs. Being around students adds to the work dynamic.

    Cons

    Constantly working on projects outside of my "digital" job description. This wasn't necessarily a con, but it ended up straying far from what I was hired to do and what I had expected to be doing with my skill set. As a contract employee, I could not apply for "Internal job postings" (even my own), until they went external.
