    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.

  2.  

    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
