I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Very bright students, great physical facilities and computers, supportive colleagues, fairly good technical support, freedom to develop course content, encouragement toward personal and professional growth

Cons

Capricious departmental leadership, over emphasis on student evaluations, some stifling of dissent, hypocritical "support" for teaching but true evaluation based on scholarship,

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more careful to ensure that department chairs receive training on how to administer an academic department, based more on consensus than on top-down fiat.

    Current Employee - Web Developer in Provo, UT

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The environment helps me learn new skills and the people are great. People here are very friendly. The challenges I faced allowed me to expand my understanding. My employer and coworkers are very easy to get along with. I set my own hours every four months and I can adjust them when necessary.

    Cons

    The culture here is obviously centered around the LDS Church and everyone who works here has to abide by the standards of the church. This could be seen as a con by some people.
