Support from management
Never could get materials for IT or otherwise.
Management was never truthful about anything.
Empty promises. I'm sure this being related to executive bonuses.
Management never realized that the student were the customers.
Very understaffed and overworked. I held 3 positions for 2 years.
Freedom to work independently
I didn't have any choice. Once again I served as Campus IT,Maintenance and Audio Visual Technician.
No Communication with the Campus President and the Dean is a Bully.
Very Unprofessional to say the least.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Campus President had no respect for the students and or faculty. We were always looked down on. I have heard many times from faculty that they felt like 2nd class citizens.
Some of the faculty were Master Degree, PHD's and MD's. The Management was almost like a cult of some sort.
Great Instructors who really care about the success of the students.
Overall compensation for your work
For IT I would say FAIR. But as I mentioned I wore 3 hats so to speak.
Office / Work Environment
Had no office space when repairing electronic devices. Conducted all business calls in the break room or the Library (LRC). The friendliness among faculty and or departments were very divided.
Read the online reviews.
If your Part time your very dispensable. Very few Full timers for obvious popular reasons.
Big turnover usually because of Management treatment of faculty.
No Cameras inside or out. Security very seldom on Campus. No Active shooter plan by Management. A JOKE !
No room for growth as far as a IT employee.
Suggestions for improvement
- Treat your employees with respect. Offer incentives maybe. Actually meet and learn your employees names as I did. Don't lock yourself in your office all day with a Conference call Do not disturb sign posted. Don't be afraid to interact with your employees and please treat them with respect.
What I like about the company
I loved serving the Students (Customers). Student have very difficult challenges in their personal lives while trying to better themselves in a very selfish Greedy world show some compassion. Yes ! I'm talking about the Campus President and the Dean.
And most of the Faculty were very professional caring individuals.
What I dislike about the company
Poor Management, not enough space for growth or to even function.
But then what do you expect within a Strip Mall.
