    Good in spite of itself

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsPeople can be great, depending on what department, school, college or division you work in.

    ConsToo much variation in management style from place to place. Top-heavy - there are at least 100 kinds of provost, vice-presidents and executive directors. Ego is unavoidable, evidenced by a private bathroom for a VP, an executive director who claims to need three offices, deans who want Macs for clerical staff when Windows boxes would be have the cost, and so-called revenue producers who use corporate credit cards to get around policy. To be clear, nothing at all sketchy in a criminal sense. Just human nature running to petty excess, like leaks you decide to live with rather than fix.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI don't give money to Creighton because I won't see it wasted by under managed, competing, scheming, upper academic & business managers. Best advice: study how George C. Marshall managed his generals in WW2. Go and do likewise.

    I have enjoyed working at Creighton for over 20 years.

    Laboratory Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsGood coworkers.
    Good benefits, especially health care and tuition remission for self and family members.
    Able to take classes for a nominal fee.
    Able to attend Mass, bible study, and spiritual direction.
    Opportunities for employee/career development.

    ConsSalaries are a bit lower than other places.
    Workplace satisfaction varies depending on department, school, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communicating with employees; they are interested in what is going on in the institution, and prefer to find out from management rather than the news media.

    It wasn't what i thought it would be

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsAt least the benefits are decent.

    Great environment and community

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsNot too intense or competitive, focused on a family like environment, utilizing team work and efficiency through working smart rather than hard.

    ConsOnce people get a job here they stay for a long period of time so it may be difficult to move up, but tuition reimbursement program allows for one to gain more training and greater potential future payoff as well as a great amount of current value.

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

    The people are the reason that Creighton is a great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsClose community where people know and care about each other.
    Everyone seems to have a sense of purpose and are willing to throw in to make things work
    Family friendly work space where managers and co-workers understand that family some times have to come first.
    Benefits are ok

    ConsBig changes across campus have really dampened spirits
    Long time employees of the university have been fired giving the sense that there is a lack of loyalty
    growing divide between faculty and staff and between departments and divisions as money and budget play a larger roll in determining the future direction of the university.

    Great program for GRAs in the College of Business

    Graduate Research Assistant (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsYou get 1000/month for working 10 hours a week.
    You also get compensated for 9 credit hours per year.
    (These numbers could change by year, but you always get at least 6 credit hours paid for, and at least 500/month. It just depends on how many GRAs there are that year and how much money they have budgeted)
    You get to set your own schedule with the professor that you are an assistant for.

    ConsYou don't always have work to do.... I guess this can be a Pro depending on how you look at it.
    Really there are no cons.

    Pleasant work environment, a bit difficult to advance

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsCreighton is a nice university setting. Opportunities for employee development. People appreciate the Catholic and Jesuit identity of the university.

    ConsAdvancement plan for employees is non-existent. It really depends upon whether you can make connections on your own. HR doesn't help out much, but it's small enough that you can make connections if you try.
