    Very understanding

    Marketing and Communications (Current Employee) Waco, TX

    ProsAll my bosses have been incredibly willing to talk to me and always make sure I put school first. Sometimes that meant working 4 hours a week, instead of 12.

    ConsBecause I am a student, the hourly pay was relatively low. However, it looks good on a resume.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your interns well and set expectations.

    Good teaching and learning. Campus improvements

There is development in campus, new stadium coming Fall 2014

    ConsLong working hours, although mostly by choice not necessarily a requirement.

    True Learning Experience

    Student (Current Employee) Waco, TX

    ProsGreat facilities, professors, and quality of education. There are plenty of activities to do around campus like kayaking, basketball, running, working out, volleyball etc.

    ConsThe campus is not as diversified as it could be and there seems to be a plethora of white fraternities and sororities. And the christianity of the individual professors and students can get to be too overbearing. Oh and the required religion classes are hard as heck.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the required religion classes an chapel.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
