Bad Management
Administrative & Office Specialist-II (Current Employee), Alexandria, VAAugust 30, 2014

I want to share with everyone. What NVCC are doing these days, they will hire you but they will not give you hours that we don't have budget so why are you hiring people and make their difficult .

Strong On-Line Experience
Adjunct Faculty Instructor (Current Employee), Annandale, VAAugust 21, 2014
I love teaching on-line and this job is a fully on-line platform. Terms are various lengths; I normally teach 8 week sessions, but also some 16 week sessions. 8 week sessions can be a lot of work, but students love them.

Strong support for you from college and division.

Education Support Specialist (Current Employee), Annandale, VAAugust 12, 2014
Pros: lots of downtime, paid break, closed for holidays
Cons: benefits, advancement
Spend the day answering phone calls and emails, but the staff and management make the job enjoyable. No room for advancement and there is no leg up on the competition for applying for other jobs within the college. Capped at 29 hours, which is unfortunate, but you get over it.

Large, Growing Institution with Quality People
Corporate Education Manager (Current Employee), Annandale, VAMay 29, 2014
Pros: autonomy
Cons: organizational structure
My typical day is self scheduled, with phone calls, meetings, proposal writing, presentations and emails.

What I have learned is primarily the organization's offerings, structure, order of operation and processes,

Management are some of the best leaders I have ever worked for.

My co-workers are friendly.

The hardest part of the job is in the back – more... office processing and support limitations, which inhibits the organization's progress.

The most enjoyable part of the job is in the interaction with people and in promoting the organization, as well as spear-heading impactful initiatives. – less
