A mostly good community college with mostly good students but too much creeping bureaucracy.
College Instructor (Former Employee) – Slidell, LA; City Park, New Orleans – February 4, 2016
An overall good academic institution.
The teachers were mostly professional. The staff mostly friendly. The locations are centered around New Orleans, which is a bit far for some, but convenient for others.
From 1998 to about 2011, it was a great place to work. A good teacher who prepared well was essentially left alone. Approximately about 2011, a change occurred. Teachers were required to do more and more time-consuming (& unnecessary) paperwork/data entry that had little to nothing to do with our teaching or accountability. I put in 80 hrs/week, yet they kept adding busywork. We were becoming like public school teachers. We were mandated mindless "safety" videos on mosquito awareness & bbq safety.
I, as did others, taught extra classes to pick up extra money. When I didn't get paid for those extra classes, I tried for half a semester to find out why -- only to be stonewalled at every level. Finally, we parted ways after lies came from the top echelons. I didn't want to work for those kinds of leaders; they didn't like my push back.
That leader has since moved on (to LCTCS).
Hopefully, the school has gotten back to treating its teachers better. It was a good school to work for when they let the good teachers teach.
Good facilities; professional teachers
Mindless bureaucracy & leadership
