    I have been working at Buena Vista University part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is so nice and we all work together well. Also, a lot of alumni work there, which it's nice to see them coming back. I am only a student, but if I wanted to find a job in Western Iowa I would definitely go to BVU as a first choice. It's so diverse and I really cannot get over how friendly everyone is.

    Cons

    A lot of alumni work there. There are quite a few people who did not get their undergraduate from BVU though and everyone still gets along. I have little complaints.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your long-term adjuncts a decent wage; also adjuncts should have some hope of getting a full time position. As of now, adjuncts are good enough to teach a class, but not good enough to hire full time.
