What you should know to work for CCU.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Colorado Christian University

ProsYou are impacting the future of the world. It is a ministry to work for Colorado Christian University and you have to be willing to work for less than the same position would pay in the private sector.

ConsSome of the decisions which are made seem to go around in circles. Things change on a regular basis and if you wait long enough, they will come back to being the same.

Advice to Senior ManagementWatch what you say to everyone. Word gets around in the small workplace and if you tell anyone something in confidence, it probably won't be that way for long.

Religious fundamentalism and rightwing politics constrain employees and education

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Colorado Christian University full-time

ProsFaculty commitment to student achievement is strong
Staff is courteous, friendly, and committed
Work environment is safe and stress free
Institution is relatively stable

ConsParochial beliefs perpetuate discrimination against women and certain other groups
Employment contingent upon conformity to narrow and regressive religious and political views
Lack of tenure for faculty limits open discussion of alternative views and academic rigor
Salary structure average at best, endowment is modest, and campus clean but uninspiring

Advice to Senior ManagementBroaden ideological perspective to improve course content and thus better serve students
Increase faculty freedom, voice, and compensation to attract and retain better faculty

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
