Administrator/Manager (Current Employee) – Columbia, MO – December 9, 2018
No trust between administration and faculty or staff. Starts right at the top! People are afraid to offer suggestions, say anything for fear they will be the next to be let go. Lots of people leaving on their own, too!
Building Engineer (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 9, 2018
A vastly diverse culture, within this institution of the arts. A great energy in the student body, with a strong and structured support system from the faculty, and staff. Most of the faculty, and staff; have been around for at least 10+ years, and are heavily invested into the growth, and culture of Columbia College.
Admissions and Records Technician/Temp (Current Employee) – Sonora, CA – October 11, 2018
Everybody knows everybody. Small beautiful campus surrounded by trees and wildlife. Management is good and the workplace feels relaxed in a professional setting. Coworkers are kind and genuinely care and want to see you succeed in whatever position you are in.
Snack Bar and Deli Cashier (Former Employee) – Sonora, CA – August 11, 2018
Was a nice place to have my first job. The atmosphere was always friendly, and the coworkers were a treat. However, if you are looking for any sort of long term career, forget about it. The pay is low, and there isn't much room for career advancement through this job.

Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – August 1, 2018
At one time, Columbia College was a great place to work. Those days are long gone. When a new president came in, he completely dismantled the "Adult Higher Education" department by firing and running out many of the excellent people who had worked there for decades and replaced them with yes-men who would not voice any opposition to the new direction he intended on taking the college in.
CC is a not-for-profit private institution that once focused on low-cost classes and catered to working adults, as well as its traditional day campus program. After the regime change, CC began to look more and more like a for-profit college. The culture changed almost overnight, with long-time employees afraid of losing their jobs and fleeing en mass.
Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – June 19, 2018
The atmosphere and collaborative community to grow and and benefit from education is strong and pervasive. For students looking to augment their education, I highly recommend. As an instructor, I share the same passion that the staff does to help educate and empower lives.
