    I have been working at Abilene Christian University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close group of co-workers that value family. Education discount is very appealing as well as the quality of the university.

    Cons

    Due to a lot of changes and consolidating going on right now, the environment at ACU is unstable. In the long run, these changes will help the university, but as it stands right now, job security is shaky. No raises even with increases in workloads due to layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciation of work goes a long way. A LONG way. Show that your employees are valued by encouraging them regularly. The university is going through a transition, so encouraging words to reassure people is a good thing. Especially if money is tight and you can't reward for good work with a raise.

    However, base salary is becoming more and more of a strain. Also, pay attention when an entire department loses almost all of it's very talented employees. If salaries don't increase in staff and you lose employees that have excellent experience, you will be stuck with a lot of green workers and will take years to get back to the level of production you were at.

    Pros

    This job is fantastic! My boss is great and the work is very reasonable for a student worker position. The pay is phenomenal.

    Cons

    Sometimes the callers are ridiculous. You will get complaints that are not really your department. People will also distract you by coming by to chat.
