    I have been working at Waubonsee Community College full-time

    Pros

    Because Waubosnee is a small campus, you get to know others quickly. Within a year, I was able to create a network of faculty, staff and administrators across campus. I serve on committees often and have been given opportunities to chair committees as well. Depending on your supervisor, you may have decent room for a lot of new ideas.

    Cons

    Waubonsee is a very hierarchical organization. Everything has to be approved by the next 2-3 people above you. It often feels like no one is trusted to do the job they were hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    The administration needs to be more transparent and less controlling. May of us have degrees and several years of experience in our fields. Trust us to do our jobs.

    I have been working at Waubonsee Community College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a spectacular organization with dynamic leadership and a brilliant support staff to back it up. I love working here!

    Cons

    If I had to say anything I would say that some departments need to collaborate with other departments more. In fairness though the management and administration works very hard to foster collaboration between departments

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all your efforts. We appreciate you engaging the support staff to encourage and inspire. You efforts are well recognized within the ranks!

    Pros

    Pros: Great leadership, consistent, works to involve the ideas of all stakeholders. One of their principles is employee engagement.

    Cons

    Sometimes the involvement of all stakeholders can delay the process, causes lots of meetings, but it is getting better. Beautiful campus, fiscally responsible (one of the few colleges not struggling in IL) and a solid job.
