Suggestions for improvement

  • The company could provide minutes to those involved after meetings. When incidents occur, there should be a mass communication system that should be used to notify employees at all campuses. It should not just be sent to those at the campus where the incident occurs.

What I like about the company

The company goes to great lengths to constantly improve. There is great effort to encourage feedback, evaluations and make changes based on results. The company also does a great deal to focus on the main goal of student success. There are many opportunities to have input in decisions that affect employees, students, prospective students and the Milwaukee community as a whole.

What I dislike about the company

There are many opportunities for the company to improve in the area of communication. Because the institution is so large, there are often times when communication is slow or non existent. Following up after meetings is also an opportunity to improve communication. With 5 different campuses, the information does not always make it to the outlying campuses as quickly as it should.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Administration needs to collaborate with staff when making decisions that affect the overall performance of the school. Sometimes the expectations set by administration are not achievable with the equipment/procedures currently in place. Administration is not always willing to change the equipment/procedures in order to achieve the desired end result, thus causing a rift between administration and staff.

What I like about the company

It is a warm, inviting atmosphere that promotes the educational and socio-economic needs of the community at large.

What I dislike about the company

Administration does not always take into consideration the amount of work staff will have to do in order to achieve an end result.

Company Culture

The company culture is discrimination, intimidation, and retaliation. However, privilege, politics and favoritism makes it a great place for some.

Support from management

If you're in the in crowd, the support is bountiful, if you are not, it's minimal if there at all.

Teamwork

It depends on the Team. If you're in the in crowd, I can give this 5 stars; I gave it one because only 10% of the staff is in the in crowd.

Freedom to work independently

Not happening unless you're in the in crowd -- and even they do as told.

Internal Communication

It's horrible. The company boasts collaboration but makes all decisions behind closed doors and shoves them down to employees.

Gender Equality

The company employees predominantly white individuals and people of color are usually in service positions (clerical support, building and food service, e.g.)

Attitude towards older colleagues

They push out the older colleagues to move in younger whites.

Career Development

Career prospects for growth and development are unavailable to me.

Overall compensation for your work

As I stated, the pay is great! And about the only thing great about this company.

Office / Work Environment

It's pretty and comfortable, but technology is lacking..which is an embarrassment at a technical college.

Environmental Friendliness

There are containers throughout in the common areas. However, they're not provided company-wide (so it's not really encouraged). If a department purchases recycling containers, they're emptied by building service staff.

Work-Life Balance

Some employees are stressed, overworked, and afraid to lose their jobs, while others sit around doing nothing all day.

Company Image

I am not proud to work for this company as it has deservedly lost support in the community as is often referred to negatively in the public.

Job Security

Serving the poor has its benefits.

Handicapped Accessibility

Thousands of dollars was spent on renovating offices that do not have handicapped doors. When the VP of Student Services was notified the doors weren't handicapped accessible, he simply said they were and refused to change them. Doors have to be opened for customers in wheelchairs to enter these departments. There are doors on the company entrances and bathrooms.

Workplace Safety

The workplace safety rules are written down but poorly followed. In instances where employee safety was at risk, administration often failed to act timely.

Challenging Work

I have been. Not anymore.

Inclusive / Diverse

This company has a culture of discrimination and privilege.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Administration needs to be replaced. They perpetuate discrimination and unfairness and it is becoming more and more detrimental to the college.

What I like about the company

Why it's here --- to provide services to the most needy people in the community.

What I dislike about the company

The culture of discrimination, retaliation, and intimidation that exists.
