Difficult place to work, employees form clicks that management listen to
Assistant (Former Employee) – Lynnwood, WA – August 6, 2016
I worked for Edmonds Community College for 15 years in their Head Start department. The most wonderful part of my job (and the only reason I stayed for so long) was the children. I finally left because the clicks among employees had gotten so bad, I couldn't stand it anymore. The icing on the cake was that management had their favored clicks and listened to them extensively. So if for some reason you weren't in with the "in crowd" (yes just like high school) your life could be very very miserable. The "in crowd" dictated who was hired and who was promoted. So you may get stuck in the same position, with no forward movement for your entire employment with Edmonds Community College. There is a union for classified employees and they work very hard for the employees, but there is only so much they can do when management is very crafty at pushing their agenda. I can only speak to one part of Edmonds Community College.... maybe things are different on campus. I just know that I dedicated myself to serving children and parents for 15 years....I worked day and night for that company and left crying most days.
