    I have been working at William Rainey Harper College full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Team environs, students, ability to think outside the box

    Cons

    Leadership has been lacking for so many years. Harper keeps hiring admins and not clerical staff, pro techs like myself, or faculty. We have too many generals and nto enough soldiers, so to speak. And, the current president is a joke, comes up with dozens of new initiatives every day, out of touch with students, very out of touch with workers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some more people to do actual work...not to manage initiatives that appear and disappear faster than they can be named...and waste a ton of taxpayer monies
