Suggestions for improvement

  • Ensure ALL people are treated fairly (no reverse racism); Include benefits for all religions, not just Muslims; Hire people based on EXPERIENCE and EDUCATION, NOT color!

What I like about the company

They provide the best benefits including a pension; health/vision/dental insurance; tuition reimbursement; free tuition; plenty of paid time off and the most holidays you can get anywhere. I love working with the students - each day is different. I work independently and am often provided with new responsibilities that challenge me and make me grow.

What I dislike about the company

They are too liberal. They focus too much on diversity while excluding white, heterosexual, Christian, conservatives. They cater to the Middle-Eastern community by providing a prayer room and fountains to wash feet. Where are the prayer rooms for Christians; Jews; etc.? They advertise democratic events but never republican events; they advertised an appearance by Al Sharpton - Are you kidding me? This guy is a complete racist! They often hire minorities even when they are less qualified. They are TOO LIBERAL!!!!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire more staff and faculty (not adjunct faculty; full-time faculty); trim the jobs at the administration level....as far as I can tell, the majority of them are NOT needed; administration needs to work with staff and faculty before making decisions because administration doesn't have a clue of what goes on below them - get advice from the experts that deal with these things day in and day out; increase the pay grade of staff positions; offer more vacation time for employees when they hit 15 and 20 year marks - it is ridiculous that an employee has to wait 15 more years to earn more vacation time.

What I like about the company

I obtained my AAS, AS, BS, and MS almost 100% paid for by my employer; I am enrolled in the SERS retirement plan (one of the best around); I have lots of sick and vacation time; I work roughly 2-3 miles from my home; I have fairly flexible hours and a great work schedule (four 9 hour days; one 4 hour day); the job itself is motivating - working with students and watching them mature, graduate, and obtain a good job; the job, at times, can be challenging, but for the most part, it is a very laid-back environment; casual dress code (jeans). This is why I have stayed for over 17 years - I don't think there is another organization I would be as content with working.

What I dislike about the company

Our organization is too top-heavy. We have entirely too many managers and not enough staff and faculty. They continually 'invent' positions in administration but then ask staff and faculty to do more than just their job because they don't want to hire more staff/faculty. It is quite frustrating, and this has happened over the last few years. Administration sits in meetings all day and drain our budget while staff and faculty are trying to the job of two or three people. Doesn't make sense at all!

Suggestions for improvement

  • ~Better communication between administration and staff ~More support for ALL employees ~Higher Pay

What I like about the company

I have direct contact with students; I have a very diverse job (every day is different); I live close to where I work (within 5 minutes); I have a great schedule that suits my needs; I have outstanding benefits (lots of paid time off); and I have a supportive boss who allows me to work independently

What I dislike about the company

The primary issue I have with my company is it is too liberal. They talk about supporting diversity; however, if you are a white, conservative, Christian, heterosexual person, they tend to look down on you (as if you are racist and/or need a lot of training in diversity). I get tired of the double standard.
