Company Culture

loved my collageues. Loved my role. Terrible director.

Support from management

This boss is very supportive and receptive to my abilities and growth

Teamwork

Colleagues work well together but our director was very out of touch

Freedom to work independently

To an extent-there is expecattions that need to be met. Sometimes they are clear, sometimes not. But most of my role required independent work as I managed events.

Internal Communication

We often do not know of chenges until after they are decided on

Gender Equality

The college is all for diversity. They strive for it

Attitude towards older colleagues

They treat 45 and up employees very well. Some have been there too long though and struggle with new ideas

Career Development

Theer is a constant push to do on the job training. Opportunities are always available to do career growth.

Overall compensation for your work

I feel i could be paid more. I work hard and am reliable.

Office / Work Environment

I had a corner office with a lot of natural light and an openable window. They encourage you to walk to meetings to get fresh air.

Environmental Friendliness

The College is very aware of recycling efforts and goes out of their way to encourage and educate employees to do so.

Work-Life Balance

Here the college is excellent. Very fair regarding work life balance.

Company Image

The current employer i have is respectful, encouraging and provides growth

Job Security

My role deals with contract work now, and these contracts are always coming.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are accessible entrances everywhere, and there are working elevators, restrooms and such for disabilities.

Challenging Work

Had to be perfect as i worked with the trustees and high level donors

Inclusive / Diverse

The college welcomes diversity. They have a passion for making sure all feel welcomed

Suggestions for improvement

  • Look hard at those in Director positions to see if they should be moved out. Reward hard workers. Be mindful of those who 'phone it in'. Be more in touch with employees who strive to work hard.

What I like about the company

I loved working Advancement events. The work was challenging but rewarding as you saw how much the invitees enjoyed themselves. The Director I worked for was very out of touch and extremely disappointing as a leader. My colleagues were wonderful, and I left mainly due to the Director and the inability to trust in her leadership and she was not very good at recognition and promotion. The college does an excellent job with work life balance, and as a parent that is huge. They also embrace diversity and work hard to be socially conscious.

What I dislike about the company

The Director position at the college tends to be a middle management position. They should look at that particular role to see if those working on that role should be there. Accountability at the level is very sporadic. Better wages is also something that should be looked at.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There is often too much bureaucracy. Trying to get a check to pay a vendor can be a real hassle. Policies are put in place that make contacts with coworkers feel impersonal. IT support has declined in quality and help desk questions are sometimes outsourced.

What I like about the company

There are good health and wellness programs. The benefits package is really good.

What I dislike about the company

My office is in a basement with poor lighting. We don’t have access to a real kitchenette in the building and have to wash dishes in the bathroom sink.

  • I think we could do a research with the intention to find ways to motivate the workers.

What I like about the company

They're very supportive, in every way I need. They're so warm, you can talk to the boss and he will do whatever is in his hands to help you.

What I dislike about the company

They should do more meetings where the employees could speak up their minds.
