I have been working at Cornerstone University full-time

Pros

Great people! Became close personal friends with many of my co-workers.

Strong identity. The mission, vision, and value are clearly defined and deeply incorporated in the work that everyone did.

Good communication through the university and a very supportive atmosphere

Cons

Being a smaller school you are required to wear many hats so work can at times be stressful. We often joked that the "other duties as assigned" portion of the job description took majority of our time!

Pay is on the lower end for what you do.

    Pros

    Personal satisfaction. Students make everything better. They are passionate about developing students, just not always staff. Faculty is strong in many departments.

    Cons

    Pay. Upward development. Seemed like the people on the "inside" could always advance, and assistants weren't always treated like they could be capable of more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to assess talent and potential on your employees. There is so much politics, and good communication could be helpful to staff.

    I have been working at Cornerstone University

    Pros

    Christian atmosphere with "good" people that work in my department. They have a good retirement plan, which after 1 year of service is 10% of salary is automatically put into your account. $1 lunches are also a great benefit, I would hate having to pack a lunch. Health benefits are a little above the norm, and meet my needs.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, little pay. You have to sign a contract stating you will obstain from alcohol. Personally I see nothing wrong with casual drinking and feel this policy should be revised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more decision making permissions to those down the pyramid.
