Pros: There are a lot of very passionate people working at BTC who put the students first which can make it a great place to work. The benefits are pretty good and through the state (BTC is a WA state community college)
Conts: The pay is low for union positions. There can be a bit interdepartmental tension as well as intradepartmental tension that is overlooked and sometimes provoked by management. There is definite tension between union and non-union upper management.
