    I have been working at Pepperdine University full-time for more than a year


    Great people, wonderful mission statement that the university strives hard to fulfill for its students, faculty, and staff. Encourages a very healthy work / life balance with resources for extra-curricular physical exercise and academic learning / lectures. Beautiful location. Supervisor is nice and flexible with hours. I really feel the positive Christian influence permeating throughout the organization.


    Not a lot of room for advancement / promotion or pay raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Award promotion / pay raises based on performance, not on seniority or favoritism.

    Positive Outlook
