    I have been working at Seneca College part-time

    Pros

    Working here can be great but it really depends on the department you work for. Some are well run, top-notch areas, who value their staff, while others do not.

    Cons

    Parking is a nightmare, and although there are bus routes that travel there, it's not as accessible as they market. And you really have to research the specific department you want to work for. Some are well run, top-notch areas, who value their staff, while others do not.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Seneca College part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good reputation in the marketplace and good teachers and curriculum.

    Cons

    There is a tremendous lack of responsiveness from management. It takes generally 3-4 business days to receive a response and then, answers are only general in nature. The culture encourages a cover your behind attitude as employees are working under management by fear.

    The President has no idea who he has working in senior management.

    Degrees are the only criteria to hiring employees with no thought to EI or experience.

    Advice to Management

    Provide leadership and help grow people. When employees need help, it is typically to help external people. By not responding, it impacts the reputation of the College and negatively impacts the character of the front facing employee.
