Tense and repressive atmosphere
Student Success Ctr, Testing Room Coord (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – November 9, 2016
Atmosphere of distrust and suspicion. Warmth and friendliness were replaced by paranoia and retaliation.I enjoyed the student interactions, didn't mind the paperwork, and the peer-to-peer relationships were good, but autonomy with problem-solving was discouraged, if not forbidden. We were not allowed to use our own judgment based on our considerable experience. Even the simplest decision was a 5-step, committee-driven experience. There was video surveillance in all but 2 offices. The interest of the student was secondary to the protection of the administration and its members. There was no flexibility; the rules were fixed and immovable.
At one time it was a pleasurable environment to work in. It is not anymore.
