    I worked at Southern Technical College full-time

    Pros

    STC placed a high emphasis on providing students with a high quality education. The staff & faculty really do care about the student's success and most are willing to go above and beyond to help someone be successful.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pressure in the industry right now and the company has been forced to lean out the staff quite a bit, almost to point of detriment. Staff are asked to take on a lot and often are not adequately thanked for their efforts. There is also not a lot of room for growth within the company. Once you are hired you are stuck in that position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on student success but don't forget that it takes caring, dedicated, and compassionate staff to get you there.

    I have been working at Southern Technical College part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This school has gone so far down hill that the only pro is being able to help your students.

    Cons

    Everything. The school does NOT care about the he students, only money. They constantly breech student contracts and deny student what they have a right too. Now they micromanage everything but blame all the instructors for their failings. They have a pay scale based on education and experience but do not follow it. This is the lowest paying school in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for your own actions without blaming your instructors. Do not accuse instructors of anything without sp along to them first. Start actually caring about the students and not only the money.

    I worked at Southern Technical College (More than a year)

    Pros

    From the CEO (whom I've known for years) on down. It's ALL about helping students achieve success.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize the admissions contact system from MDT/CVue to 5/9 and Salesforce. Get all data within 10 mi range of each campus and have offshore center qualify and transfer to admissions.

    Pros

    Provides opportunity to do didactic teaching and work with students on an interpersonal level.

    Cons

    The screening process for students is poor, unrealistic expectations for student's success and progress. Company is for-profit and more concerned about finances than aiding students and staff. The directors are either leaving or being fired on annual or semi-annual basis.

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

    Pros

    Some employee are great . U learn a lot it is a stepping stone..

    Cons

    The staff lacks discipline in correcting mistakes. They brush things under the rug... Fault you for all the wrong. Never see good you do. Quit turn over. There users, Careers services is a joke at some campuses. Most are concerns about there own personal needs and a pay check.

    Pros

    None, company should work on transitioning their students and employees to better opportunities outside the company

    Cons

    For-profit are the key words here, only interested in making money and not in quality education or being an employer of choice in the community. Management is proud of getting rid of people and sets unrealistic expectations on their staff in order to keep the doors open

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your students and your employees
