    I worked at Colorado Christian University full-time

    Pros

    The vast majority of people are really kind and fun to work with. The hours are usually flexible and you feel like you are part of a family. The location is also good.

    Cons

    Management seems to terminate people with little cause or review. There is almost no room for movement within the company and they solicit external candidates before offering positions to qualified internal candidates. The organization is far too "top down"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use and value the people you have, they are not disposable.

    Pros

    It is fulfilling to work with college students who are seeking to gain educational and professional training. CCU has great benefits and creates a strong community among the staff and faculty. There are several perks that make the job fun, like time off at Christmas,and unlimited tea and coffee. They are quick to provide the resources need to get the job done. The IT department is friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons of working at CCU.

    I worked at Colorado Christian University

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Watch 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.

  7.  

    Religious fundamentalism and rightwing politics constrain employees and education

    I worked at Colorado Christian University full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Parochial 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Doesn't Recommend
