Coach/Mentor (Former Employee) –  Valhalla, NYJanuary 11, 2017
Not a friendly place to work -- there seems to be little, if any, feeling of 'community' at this college. Most offices are very territorial.
Inaccurate job descriptions.
Pros
Students are great! Diverse and enthusiastic!
Cons
No communication.

part time help desk, assistant
Technical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Valhalla, NYDecember 28, 2016
The beginning of the shift consists of checking work orders to be attended to within the various computer labs, running routine maintenance and updates if necessary and generally making sure the equipment and the network are running smoothly. The management taught me how to research solutions to problems along the network and to be diligent in execution of solutions. the hardest part of the job was learning a solution for the various things that could go wrong within a network. The most enjoyable part of the job was correcting a network problem in order for a student to resume their workload unimpeded by faulty equipment

A Day in the Life
Workstation Engineer II (Current Employee) –  Valhalla, NYAugust 29, 2016
A typical day can consist of receiving equipment, checking the order, and scheduling the installation.

There are deadlines that must be met due to the start of the semester, and there are times when projects can't be completed on time due to outside factors, like budget reviews and VIPs needing immediate assistance.

Co-workers care about the work they're doing and want to help each other succeed.
Pros
The schedule.
Cons
The contract.

Used to be a great place to work
IT (Current Employee) –  Valhalla, NYJune 27, 2016
WCC used to have a great working atmosphere, but the changes in management have taken staff morale to an incredible low point. Most people agree that the working environment is now toxic since management throws their own staff under the bus in order to make themselves look good to the new president and new deans. Policies and procedures are tossed aside regularly by IT management. Staff remain dedicated to helping each other and the students despite the disconnect with management, and WCC seems to be on the cutting edge of technology.
Pros
Campus environment, technology, grounds, health care, NYS retirement
Cons
Management, excessive/unnecessary amount of new Deans without increasing support staff
