    Pros

    Words can’t even begin to describe how much I love working at SEU! SEU is a close community where I feel appreciated and immensely satisfied in what I do. The university cares very deeply about their employees and in fulfilling their mission to make quality education attainable for anyone regardless of background. SEU highly regards and promotes social justice, and I love being connected to a place aligned to my own personal values. SEU is also very faithful to their operating principles, and it shows in how they treat everyone: 1) We work through collaboration. 2) We treat each other respectfully. 3) We are a continually developing organization. 4) We each take responsibility for excellence. 5) We are dedicated to high standards of service. 6) We have open communication across the university. 7) We seek to understand and promote diversity. 8) We are good stewards of our organizational resources. SEU lives these principles every day; it’s not just lip service or empty mission statement talk. The campus is also absolutely beautiful and the benefits are generous as well.

    Cons

    The pay isn’t terrible by any means, but don’t expect to be paid at the same level as what you’d find in the for-profit world. The benefits, work/life balance, culture, and atmosphere more than make up for this. I think the pay is better than average for higher ed though. You’ll be paid decently here, but you most likely won’t get rich like you might working at a tech startup.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make the university run more efficiently. Decision-making by collaboration is definitely a hallmark to be commended, but sometimes this causes frustration and delays in the implementation of projects (especially when those projects touch every part of campus). Overall, it’s a phenomenal place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at St. Edward's (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by the assistant and associate members of the office of the Registrar. The interview was about half an hour to 45mins in duration. Standard questions were asked as well as some personality type questions, such as "If you found an elephant in your back yard, how would you react?" I also met with the Registrar of the office, and he asked me "Should higher education be a privilege or right?" I am not sure if this was specific to the office itself, but if it is keep those two questions in mind. Also, they do not upload a decision on your application after you're interviewed. I was not picked because I never got a call back.
