    Pros

    The Application Development Services team is very good. The network department is a work in progress.

    Cons

    Edmonds is a small college and the compensation is lower than other community colleges and much lower than the general IT industry.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be based on actual employee performance and contribution rather than just longevity.

    Pros

    good benefits, and they are nice people.

    Cons

    some of them are very picky, they don't give challenges to worker, if you know how to do it don't do it unless you have experience.

  3. I really enjoyed being a tutor. There are many hard working people there.

    Pros

    If your are currently a student at EdCC, there is little better you could do than tutor. I suggest tutoring the subject that you are interested in continuing your education for. Nothing helps you understand a subject like teaching it.

    Cons

    The role of the tutor is not always well defined - this is potentially problematic if a tutor is over-eager to help a student, or if the student is looking for an inappropriate level of assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Clear up the limits of what tutors can and cannot help with. Also, consider adding more group sessions as this can give people interested in education experience.

    Pros

    Very easy, relaxed, good benefits, (almost) free class, decent pay

    Cons

    No incentives so nobody wants to improve, everyone is complacent--you will become like this.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are not in control of any of my complaints, so I don't really have any advice to give

  6. Friendly & helpful environment with lots of new teacher support & materials

    Pros

    Wonderful teachers, administrators, & staff who were all really supportive and helpful. They have a lead teacher who will help you prepare for everything, from the syllabus and curriculum, to lesson plans and activities!

    Cons

    The shared common work room was a new concept for me. Although I fully understand why they need that (so many teachers throughout the day and no way to provide personal computers for everyone), it was annoying and time consuming to put all of your stuff away and take it out before/after every class (if they can find you room in a cupboard). Also, some computers may or may not be actually hooked up correctly to printers, etc. Other than that, I felt attendance was an issue (perhaps because it is a community college and not a university?) more so than other places I've taught. Next time, I would be stricter.

  7. Great people to work with, I enjoyed working there very much. Management was the best. A great learning experience.

    Pros

    Great flexibility with scheduling, payroll was always on time and correct.. Knowing that I was a part of students success was very rewarding.

    Cons

    Very hard to get a permanent position due to the union. Lots of red tape. high turn over. you can end up feeling like a little fish in a big pond.

    Advice to Management

    Help employeeys understand ways to work around the red tape.

    Pros

    My contribution to the team; testing, documentation, procedural writing (publication). Communication as a group brought about new personalities and leadership.

    Cons

    Competition; loose sight of what the point actually was. insufficient amount of training; schedule timing learn as you go it was a benefit in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going; I believe in you.

    Pros

    Flexible and easy to schedule around your quarter classes, no pressure to work more hours than you can handle. Management is nice and easy to approach, no one will snap at you for getting sick last minute or lowering hours due to stress. Really great place.

    Cons

    Not so much Edmond's itself but coworkers aren't always the hardest working. I had to pick up the slack for other tutors a lot because they'd ignore the request board hoping someone else will take it up. Can't really report it and it makes the workload uneven at times. Not really a big con though, since I enjoyed talking with people and helping them out.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe be a bit more stern on lazy worker, because there are a few who will take advantage of the kindness of upper management.

    Pros

    Amazing management, people, and everyone is passionate about their job.

    Cons

    Being a part time employee it's hard to know when/what classes you are teaching until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to the younger generation and their ideas of making a department better.
