    I have been working at Southeastern College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In my 4th Speech class I had only 5 students, all young women, who were bright and resulted in an average of 94.5! I love teaching this class and seeing the lights go on in the students' eyes about the importance of knowing how to communicate, properly, by using your voice to inform and persuade others to be conscious, active, and ethical!

    Cons

    Even though smaller classes give me the opportunity to work closely with each student, I would like more students in my class, simply because I so enjoy teaching!

    Advice to Management

    Offer the Speech Communication first because it will improve the skills of student to work with each other and with their professors.

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

    Pros

    The students, faculty and most staff are awesome. Great educational environment where everyone truly wants to see the students succeed.

    Cons

    The local admin leadership and corporate leadership are horrible. High pressure, poor moral, low respect and appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to effectively manage/encourage/lead staff to be successful. They want to be, but they need caring, respectful leaders.

    Pros

    Pay, co-workers, students and clean campus. Worked during the worse years of the recession when classes were packed. It was fast paced and fun.

    Cons

    Management can be tough. Telling instructors how to teach minute by minute. Admissions letting in people that aren't serious about the program and then being held accountable for their success.

    Advice to Management

    Actually do the things you say you'll do on Presidents' Day meeting. Let the people work. And listen to the faculty.

    I worked at Southeastern College full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work does not come home with you becasue of confidentiality reasons. Its a good foot in the door to sales and learning to deal with rejection repeatedly. Minor automony with scheduling your work day.

    Cons

    Everything. You live in a cubicle and make phone calls to people who did not request information. The pay and hours are awful and 6 day work weeks are no fun. It all starts out rosy and goes down hill from there. Communication with management is horrid and turnover is exteremely high due to poor training and high expectations amongst other things. No room for promotion or pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    communicate with your employees and treat them like intelligent adults. An improvement plan with someone who wants to win could do the department wonders instead of firing and re-hiring and hoping to hit targets.

    Pros

    Students, academic freedom to a degree

    Cons

    Micromanaged, not enough classes, not enough money for your degree or experience

    Advice to Management

    Raise the rate per class, stop micromanaging your instructors, create possible full time work for gen Ed instructors

    Pros

    I loved spending time with the students and getting to know them. The teachers there are really sweet and great to talk too. They were really there for the students.

    Cons

    This place is under horrible management. The constantly through admissions staff under the bus to save their own jobs. They were extremely rude and disrespectful. I would never work there again.

    Advice to Management

    You should never use other staffs shortcoming for training, such as, training a new admissions staff member with a phone call made by a member that was still present on the team. It unprofessional and disrespectful.

    I have been working at Southeastern College full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, diversity. Tuition reimbursement if you expect to be here two more years after graduation. Great students.

    Cons

    Small campus, ancient computers, no office space for instructor or program coordinators. No room for professional growth. If you are ambitious in life and want to keep growing, this is not the place. If you love to be in your comfort zone and do the job to keep also your managers in their comfort zone, then this is definitely the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks, appreciate the talent. Improve your leadership qualities.
