    Slow paced staff focused on status quo, not innovation.

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

    Pros

    Because you're not expected to do much, it gives you time to pursue hobbies and be involved in the community. There are a few people who genuinely work for and care about the students.

    Cons

    Don't work here if you want to be pushing boundaries, implementing best practices, or evading favoritism. While many are good intentioned, the staff seems burnt out and bored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know that there is a whole world outside of Belmont, stop just hiring your own and look to other schools (and maybe even business?!) to create real change. Your student population has changed; pay attention.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work I was able to perform.

    Cons

    Too many people (including students) who act like they are better than you.
    Money is wasted through and through and yet the raises are the same for all (at least in my department) no matter what your performance was or the quality of work you performed. Many people in management positions with no interpersonal skills.
    No job training or advancement opportunities (at least in my department).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees and listen to their suggestions (even if you look down on that department, but sing their praises when you are addressing them). ALL your employees are key to a successful organization, so they are just as important as the students are.

    Decent education but Curb College is very misleading

    I worked at Belmont University

    Pros

    Belmont has a great location, decent professors, and appears to be growing and expanding its reach and influence around Nashville and the Tennessee area.

    Cons

    Provides potential students with unrealistic job expectations, and does not do enough to give its students an accurate depiction of the post-collegiate job market. Much of the student body is also privileged and entitled which does not promote a learning environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make promises to 18 year old kids and their parents that you know won't come true. Every Belmont music business major is not simply handed a high-paying, interesting music industry job with their diploma.

    Belmont is an amazing place to work. Student centered staff and faculty. Great benefits for earning a degree.

    I worked at Belmont University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and amazing students in the Art Department. A great place to be as an adjunct and starting a career. Everyone is really welcoming and helpful across the board. Faculty seems genuinely committed to the students as a whole.

    Cons

    The school is always growing so the need for full-time is always there, but unfortunately the funds don't always meet the need. But they're always looking and trying. They honestly do a good job of trying to meet student needs in faculty / teacher ratios but like all schools it takes time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
