    Pros

    Great benefits and time off. Coworkers are very caring.

    Cons

    Absolutely impossible to move up, apparently even if you're well qualified for a position. SEVERE micromanaging issues among management and professors on the IAs. I can't take my 15 minute breaks without someone assuming I do nothing all day and reporting it to my manager.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for employees to actually earn raises. Your "raises" are just the new base every year, and these 3% "raises" don't even match inflation taking place in north Texas. Give us actual raises that don't just become the new base line for all new employees. There is no incentive for IAs to stay longer-term, which is why there is such a high turnover rate.

    Pros

    Great hours, great pay, and a lot of time off for holidays!

    Cons

    It can be difficult to get a new position, especially if you don't network within the company. It doesn't seem to really matter if you're qualified or not as long as you know the right person.

    I have been working at Tarrant County College full-time

    Pros

    A lot of nice people work here.

    Cons

    Favoritism and ethnicity rule. More important to be PC than have worth.
    Little room for different views, experiences.
    Professionalism could be better.
    Benefits vary by location.
    Pay is low for most employees, way too high for leadership.
    Just another non-profit taking advantage of the Federal Education System. If you like to wear t-shirts and scandals on dress down day, you'll do great!

    Advice to Management

    Dump the deadwood.
    If I lived in that county, I would be mad that my tax dollars support this institution. Hire management who have past supervisory experience, stop making teachers supervisors/leadership. Don't push your politics on others.
