I have been working at Carson-Newman College
Pros – Carson Newman has provide me the opportunity to build an entire degree program with academic standards that supersede larger universities. My supervisor and dean have continually supported any changes I recommended for the curriculum, GPA standards and laboratory equipment requisite for me to provide an exemplary educational environment for my students.
Cons – Mirroring larger universities, it is blatantly apparent that athletic ventures (e.g., football) receive the preponderance of financial gifts and enjoy facilities that grossly exceed most academic classrooms.
Advice to Senior Management – Develop a pragmatic financial strategy to permit the university to maintain it's financial solvency without a significant reliance on donations from entities who wish to influential the religious principles championed by the university.

I have been working at Carson-Newman College full-time
Pros – Christian work environment, encouraged to share values and mentor students, other like-minded teachers who are true servants
Cons – School is in a tight financial spot right now so 401(k) matching benefits have been removed, have only had one 2% pay raise in 3 years that didn't even cover the health insurance cost increase, really have to see this as serving to come here
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Carson-Newman College
Pros – Lots of good people to work with. Solid academic reputation. Employees tend to come and stay a long time. Good sense of family.
Cons – Suffers from budget issues, lack of fund raising. Athletics is rarely affected by budget cuts but academic departments are affected nearly every year. Needs a strong administration with good leadership. Has a Provost that wants to run the college.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to the facutly.
