    I worked at Anderson University (IN) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good community, great students, beautiful campus. Certain departments are supportive of employees earning their advanced degree but you do not receive financial assistance.

    Cons

    Enrollment has seen a 10% decline over the last several years. While this is in part due to the economy, the executive leadership is lacking. The President announced his intention to retire next year, hopefully new leadership will bring change. Promotions are non-existent and they just cut $1.3 million from their staff support, eliminating 40 positions. Salaries are typically the lowest on the spectrum of pay in higher ed.

    Current Employee - Adjunct Professor in Anderson, IN

    I have been working at Anderson University (IN) part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Christian environment, not a lot of micro-managing, full-time staff receives tuition benefits for further education for you and family

    Cons

    Unorganized, barely meeting NASM standards, students pay way too much money for this style of education, part-time staff receives no tuition help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I cannot speak for each department, I can speak generally that you need to seriously evaluate your adjunct program. LOW salary, no annual pay increases, and zero benefits including any sort of tuition assistance for further education.

    I worked at Anderson University (IN) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and a lot of paid-time-off (starts at either 14 or 21 days per year), friendly co-workers, beautiful campus, good tuition waiver benefits (although graduate program choices are somewhat limited)

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for advancement due to small size of organization and upper management's preference for external hires over internal promotions. Upper management seem at a loss of ideas to respond to increasing market pressures in private higher education other than continuously tightening financial constraints. This basically translates directly to low or no raises, increasing co-pays and decreasing coverage for medical insurance, and not filling open positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Numerous expensive marketing campaigns cannot make up for poor fundamentals.
