Got paid well while earning a degree. Good job experience and something to put on my resume long-term. Worked as IT work-study. Had good management and provided a valuable service.
CWI has grown unsustainably fast since its inception, and it has not valued its faculty or recognized their role in keeping the college afloat. They rely too heavily on adjunct workers to save money. Full-time faculty do not have options for tenure, and the promotion process is laughable. Starting pay is below local K-12 salary and full-time faculty workload is 15/15 plus service and professional development obligations. The president and board have historically not supported faculty and have created a culture of fear and distrust. But, CWI is full of incredible colleagues and direct-report managers like dept chairs and deans. The students are wonderful and faculty have a great deal of autonomy and opportunity for innovation in the classroom.
Work study at CWI paid just enough to help keep bills paid while I was in school without taking on more hours at another job. It was good to build experience in an office environment so I could add that to my resume after graduating.
I’d avoid working here. Especially if you are a minority. Zero incentive to go for rank promotion or go above and beyond with how they fail to recognize faculty. Morale is abysmal. It’s overall a hostile environment for people of diversity. I was literally asked why I felt sharing that I hiked Table Rock with my same-gender partner over the weekend was “appropriate”. I guess it’s only acceptable to talk about what you do with your family if you are straight? Unprofessional leadership at every level.
CWI has capitalized on how to treat their employees. I can not praise the administration enough. The managers assigned to my courses always made your well being a top priority followed by the students. I have boasted to many friends just how good we are treated, I enjoy my time teaching for CWI as fun, not work. Take a moment and think about what it takes to make that statement about an employer. I have been in the professional setting for over 37 years, and no other employer has made teaching this much fun. One of the best parts of my job is knowing that you made an impact on so many young lives venturing out into the world on their own. Watching students succeed is what CWI is all about. What a great place to be this late in my life.
