What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

I enjoy working with my coworkers. There is a real sense of community here that cannot be found just anywhere. Leadership takes a genuine interest in staff well-being, and this is good to experience. I also know that my thoughts and ideas are respected and will be considered when making decisions. WDTC also does a great job of promoting a healthy balance between life and work.
