Reviews

Internal Communication

Adjunct instructors are often out of the loop

Suggestions for improvement

  • Include adjunct instructors in convocations and all KCBusiness meetings. Learning about policy changes second-hand is unsettling.

What I like about the company

I feel quite loyal to KC. If a competing offer came my way, I would be more inclined to stay where I am working with our current leadership and my colleagues. The workplace culture is excellent.

What I dislike about the company

We could consider environmental concerns more carefully. For example, we ought to have some sort of recycling program on campus.

My coworkers are all supportive and collaborative. We genuinely care about each of our students and make educating personal.

Adjunct Instructor scheduling is unreliable, but that quandary is everywhere.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Office personal needs to stay up front and not get involved with educators. Educators need to be more involved with the spending revenue of our building or supplies.

What I like about the company

Working at my job has been the most rewarding experience during my career as a teacher. I am very proud of my position and very proud of my students. My work environment is very rewarding and I can not think of another place to work that provides me with all of my benefits.

What I dislike about the company

With any company there is and will be room for improvements. In education we as educators need raises for the hours we put into our jobs. More say so in office personal arrangment issues that arise. Other than that my work place is awesome.
