    Great people who love students and want to help them succeed in life.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThere are some really great opportunities at DBU to network and grow personally.
    Easy for students to work on campus.

    ConsPoor management from the top down.
    Many dual personalities - Jeckle and Hyde.
    My director is terrible about being consistent and rarely stays at work for a full day.
    Also, I never truly felt appreciated - management seems fake and flaky.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider showing more appreciation for employees - both full and part time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Awarding Universty to work for

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe heart the University for its mission statement is evident. Co-workers are great to work with and feels so much like a family. Very family oriented which allows for great work/life balance. Also very reasonable when it comes to vacation and sick leave. They know how to take care of their employees and you feel like you are really a part of something.

    ConsSome departments can be stressful especially when it comes to communication but things normally get resolved and a timely manner.

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

    Student Worker

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDepending what department you work with, they are VERY flexible with classes. If you get the right boss you will really love your job and most likely be promoted after school.

    ConsThe pay here is terrible, expect minimum wage, no if's, and, or butts. They expect you to have little to no life throughout your time here.

    Whatever they'd have you do

    Anything As A New Graduate (Current Employee)

    Prossome of the leadership is good, benefits are above average, if you're in with the higher-ups you're set

    Consa lot of rules and they expect you to abide by them - Legalistic
    The pres is completely against certain churches and pastors and if you go to a church that he doesn't like... good luck.
    pay is horrible and some positions paid more 15 years ago - they try and get new grads to "get a free masters" while they join the staff and make 22-24K a year while the some student workers who are "connected" make the equivalent to 40K

    Advice to Senior Managementenough with the micro-management
    reward people

    One learns to be a servant leader for the world.

    Adjunct Professor (Current Employee) Arlington, TX

    ProsThe school boasts of servant leadership-oriented faculty and staff, a Christ-centered and Bible-centered atmosphere. It also offers many activities from which students can choose.

    ConsThere's some noise in the quiet zone when one tries to focus on studying. Another area for improvement is lack of books and study area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEnlarge the library, especially study areas.

    All talk, no walk

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe campus is nice. They spend a lot of money on making the place look pretty, and it certainly is.

    ConsMicromanagement is the motto of the higher ups. Lower Level employees are treated like untrustworthy children. Hypocrisy and favoritism abounds. Harassment is quietly tolerated, letting lower level employees be treated like sub-humans. If you aren't in with the big wigs, who are the worst of all, you're a nobody. No room for advancement and the pay is absurdly lower than the average all in the name of humbly doing God's work. This place is about as non - Christ like as it gets.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a decent human being and treat lower level employees like they are people too. Stop paying the execs ridiculous salaries and start giving your other employees a livable wage instead of using Jesus as a cop out.
