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

    Pros

    Faculty and staff are friendly and open to questions. Very easy to fit in. They are very flexible toward work-life balance issues and maintain enthusiasm for their mission. Staff works closely with the students, so strong interpersonal skills a must. The law professors are some of the best in town, and bring their expertise and passion inside and outside the classroom.

    Cons

    Could do more to foster professional development. There is little opportunity for advancement within the school, so people who want to move along their career path may have to leave in order to find more opportunities.

    Great place to work in a close knit community. Can be hard to make your way ahead here if you are not liked.

    I have been working at Campbell University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Campbell University is always growing always changing and especially with the opening of a new med school, pt school and nursing school so its great to get it on the ground floor. Small campus where everybody knows your name much like an episode of Cheers. Faculty member care about the students and each other and its a very warm environment.

    Cons

    Can be hard to get ahead if you don't know somebody who knows somebody. It's important to not step on anyone's toes in such a small community lest something you did on a Friday night prevent you getting a job on Monday morning. Pay isn't as competitive as a large research university would be for someone with a terminal degree.

    Pros

    Other faculty members genuinely care about and engage with students. The university also regularly reinvests in campus infrastructure and into growing flagship programs.

    Cons

    IT infrastructure is lagging - but also actively under renovation. Academic programs that are not high-profile seem to lag visibly behind other departments in facility quality and budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep lower profile departments' facilities more current. Also pay closer attention to how well some of the courses match with the university's stated values. I have kids attending Campbell, and am glad they are enrolled there - still, they do bring home some interesting stories about content from CUFS and CUW courses.

    management is supportive and does their best to take care of you.

    I worked at Campbell University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working with professional staff who become a team for the betterment of the university. Having a faculty that has the knowledge and experience to provide students with tools they need to become a success.

    Cons

    No follow through from management on promises to provide staff means for making campus a better place to work and provide students with vital resources needed to complete coursework.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staff who deals with situations daily. Stop having agendas against certain ideas.

    Pros

    small, homey college, friendly staff and students; I taught there for several years an an adjunct. Like most universities they are getting cheaper and cheaper in regard to paying their faculty. All the money is going to fancy new amenties for undergraduates.

    Cons

    below-average pay, remote location. This university is really in the middle of nowhere, Harnett County, NC. The students range from excellent to,mostly, mediocre and those who could not get accepted to any good state universities.

    I worked at Campbell University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are none to list. The blind seem to be leading the blind. There is no continuity within the management ranks. Everyone with a position has an agenda.

    Cons

    Don't have enough years left to list them all! however, a few are poor leadership, nepotism, good ole boy system, cronyism, etc. you should be getting the picture. There is absolutely no support for those who produce the day to day operational needs of this university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone and start over. The pay scale is nowhere near what other universities offer. Alumni are treated with disrespect unless they are large donors. This university needs a facelift in the worst way. I would never recommend Campbell University to anyone, ever.

    Pros

    The people that work at the school are excellent and some of the best that I have been around. Everyone is also very friendly and tries to be helpful. The facilities have been undergoing a major upgrade over the last five years.

    Cons

    It is located in a very small town without access to stores, restaurants or much nearby culture. It is just the way the school is set up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the people you hire do their jobs and don't micromanage. Plenty of good and competent people work at the school that just need a little guidance and need to be left on their own.

    I worked at Campbell University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great vacation, sick leave, and 401K. Faculty genuinley cares about students. Great staff members.

    Cons

    Very little pay raises - if you do get one, it's 1% of your gross annual salary - which a lot of times does not even equate to a gallon of gas or milk! If you're a salaried employee, plan on working 45-60 hours a week. It will not be an option; instead you will be told to 'do what you have to do to get the work done' attitude. Trust me, when you meet the students, you will do anything to help them, they are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises to those employees who go above and beyond in their positions. Don't give raises to employees who do not. If there is a management issue within a department, listen to the employees. When there is a great turn over in employees within one department; that should tell you there is a problem. Stop shrugging the problem off and address it. You are losing dedicated, caring, devoted employees from this behavior. Not every person is made to be able to relate to young adults... if you have the staff that is able to then value them and listen to them.
