    I worked at Creighton University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. They are like family. Creighton does a lot for the employees with professional development opportunities, lunches, and opportunities to volunteer for causes. Great flexibility for work-life balance. The cost of insurance is less than others that I have had or seen.

    Cons

    This is education - do not expect to make a lot of money. If you want to park in the parking lots, you have to pay for parking. Only get paid once a month. It takes forever (it seems like) for change to happen within the organization. Silos between divisions which is frustrating to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Deal with the silos between divisions. Explain why you make the decisions you make. You will gain more support if you do. The staff - faculty division is getting larger. The staff support and often times do the work of faculty and upper management. Reward them for it.

    I have been working at Creighton University full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good coworkers.
    Good benefits, especially health care and tuition remission for self and family members.
    Able to take classes for a nominal fee.
    Able to attend Mass, bible study, and spiritual direction.
    Opportunities for employee/career development.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit lower than other places.
    Workplace satisfaction varies depending on department, school, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating with employees; they are interested in what is going on in the institution, and prefer to find out from management rather than the news media.

    Great program for GRAs in the College of Business

    Former Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Creighton University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get 1000/month for working 10 hours a week.
    You also get compensated for 9 credit hours per year.
    (These numbers could change by year, but you always get at least 6 credit hours paid for, and at least 500/month. It just depends on how many GRAs there are that year and how much money they have budgeted)
    You get to set your own schedule with the professor that you are an assistant for.

    Cons

    You don't always have work to do.... I guess this can be a Pro depending on how you look at it.
    Really there are no cons.

    Pleasant work environment, a bit difficult to advance

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Omaha, NE
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Omaha, NE

    I worked at Creighton University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Creighton is a nice university setting. Opportunities for employee development. People appreciate the Catholic and Jesuit identity of the university.

    Cons

    Advancement plan for employees is non-existent. It really depends upon whether you can make connections on your own. HR doesn't help out much, but it's small enough that you can make connections if you try.

    I worked at Creighton University

    Pros

    It is a fun place to work. I was only an intern while I was a student so my experiences may differ compared to a full time employee.

    Cons

    As an intern, you were responsible for all the grunt work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the athletic department, it is easy to communicate with management. They are always open for ideas.
