    I worked at Monroe Community College full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free housing and utilities, tuition reimbursement, professional development funds, great benefits

    Cons

    Overwork their employees. You are getting paid for 40 hours/week but you'll be working 50 hours. They do not have enough staff for the size of the campus. RDs are on-call for emergencies 25% of the time. You'll regularly work nights, weekends, and holidays. You will often be up until 5am dealing with resident problems, fights, parties, medical emergencies, and suicidal residents. You will not be properly trained to... handle these incidents. Sexual harassment is not taken seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Fire everyone. Start over. Hire more staff (at least 7 RDs).

    I have been working at Monroe Community College full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the pros are now gone. Once was a flexible, nimble, caring institution.

    Cons

    Severe and unnecessary changes so that the current president controls everything. She's hired yes men and women to do what she wants. This has led to a disastrous decline in enrollment.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Kress
