    Pros

    Not too intense or competitive, focused on a family like environment, utilizing team work and efficiency through working smart rather than hard.

    Cons

    Once people get a job here they stay for a long period of time so it may be difficult to move up, but tuition reimbursement program allows for one to gain more training and greater potential future payoff as well as a great amount of current value.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Close community where people know and care about each other.
    Everyone seems to have a sense of purpose and are willing to throw in to make things work
    Family friendly work space where managers and co-workers understand that family some times have to come first.
    Benefits are ok

    Cons

    Big changes across campus have really dampened spirits
    Long time employees of the university have been fired giving the sense that there is a lack of loyalty
    growing divide between faculty and staff and between departments and divisions as money and budget play a larger roll in determining the future direction of the university.

    Pros

    Caring atmosphere that feels like a family. May be the Jesuit influence as it's a kinder/gentler place to work. Thanks CU!!!

    Cons

    Working out of a budget crunch (signs of the time), but they are getting back on track. Wish benefit package a bit stronger, but so fortunate to have what I've got in these hard times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've got great management -- provides feedback, constructive critisim, provides leadership, and fosters my growth. Couldn't ask for more. Thanks CU!!!

    Great co-workers, Good Opportunities, low pay

    Pros

    Overall Creighton is a great place to work. Co-workers treat each other like family, most managers reward employees for hard work, recognition is common across the campus, there are opportunities for advancement within most departments and across the university. The environment is very collaborative and innovative. The benefits are very good- especially the vacation time, retirement contributions, and tuition remission.

    Cons

    - For some positions, the pay is below the market rate for the Omaha area- taking advantage of tuition remission is a good way to make up for the lower wages.
    - You also have to pay for parking.
    - Some policies are from the turn of the century and need to be updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Make the pay competitive with the Omaha area
    - Make sure you are keeping the good employees and not driving them away
    - Continue to encourage collaboration and innovation
