A great opportunity to grow and meet some good people, but limited in terms of upward mobility.

College Worker (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Capital University full-time for more than 3 years

Pros- great people
- good benefits
- opportunity to get a lot of varied experiences
- transferable skills that you can take into professions outside of higher education

Cons- depending on your position, there is a limited amount of opportunity to advance
- more of a general higher education concern, but there is lower compensation

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to vary some of the experiences of the employees. It's easy to fall into the same routines and give people the same assignments, but that leads to boredom and doesn't keep people engaged. Work to challenge your employees more and reward them accordingly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

An employer straight out of the Stone Age

Adjunct (Former Employee)

I worked at Capital University part-time for more than 10 years

ProsIt's a great location. The campus is very attractive. The hours are reasonable compared to a lot of other employers.

ConsIt is a culture that does not seek, value or tolerate open communication or different points of view. Compensation is below average.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Student Job

Customer Service Analyst (Former Employee)
Columbus, OH

I worked at Capital University part-time for more than 3 years

ProsI learned a lot and made lifelong connections. Many students have been hired on later and they offer great recommendations when you move on to the next step in life.

ConsAs a student job there is only so far up in pay you can go. There is a lot of work done and responsibilities gained, however, the pay is set on a university level.

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

Lack of professional and financial support from department and administration

Assistant Professor (Former Employee)

I worked at Capital University

ProsGood benefits package for faculty members.

ConsNo funding opportunities. All departments lack equipment and technology comparable to other universities in the region. Very low diversity and no strategies to encourage diversity among students or faculty. No support from department chairs with concerns to students. No help from IT or Public Safety when dealing with any issues. If you are looking for a research institution, look elsewhere.
The salary is low and students are unmotivated.
Would not recommend working here as a faculty member or a staff member.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
