    Pros

    Many very good people. Management is fiscally conservative. This leads to our current "stable" financial status when many peers are struggling. Employees overall are not mean or "backstabbing". Tuition waiver for undergraduate classes.

    Cons

    Management avoids difficult decisions at times. Bad employees are not removed. This affects overall morale. In fact, morale is fairly low in most areas on campus. In addition, while the fiscally conservative model keeps the university in business, this also means few, if any, raises. Pay is also not tied to performance. Lastly, the staffing is not sufficient to do a good job. Too much work and too few people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people you hired. If there is a complaint, listen and respond. If you can't trust or depend on an employee, show them the door and find someone who can do the work. Moral suffers when obvious problems are not addressed.

    Pros

    It is a great Christian environment to work in.

    Cons

    Slow to change. Same issues observed over many years by people in my same position.

    Advice to Management

    An inability to move with the changing pace of higher education will see Bluffton fail. I hope something changes! I really LOVE Bluffton!
