I have been working at Culver

Pros

Great enviroment. Plenty of time spent on learning.

Cons

None to think of. Perhaps as being owern operated focus on diffrent ways to inspire team members as the latter tends to stop with being a G.M.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay focused.Don't spend all your money on G.M. Remember that the team members and asst managers are the the next ones to run the operation.

    Current Employee - Lower Staff Position in Culver, IN

    I have been working at Culver full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment in a relaxed atmosphere. It is an educational campus and generally everyone is there pulling the rope in the same direction--for the students.

    Cons

    As a non-profit educational organization the faculty and administrators tend to earn income at the expense of the lower staff positions. Income inequality is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know lower staff better. The lower staff is an important part of the culture of the organization.

    Callous, mismanaged, poorly run labor camp -- stay away from summer camp at Culver!

    I worked at Culver

    Pros

    This review is not a reflection of the highly esteemed Winter Boarding School, but instead Summer Schools and Camps. Culver has an amazing alumni network that can be leveraged to find a job elsewhere. Use it, and get out! Economic times are tough, but it is not worth it to sink to this level.

    Cons

    The summer camp is run by old men who are out of touch with today's youth, and as such, are out of touch with the young staffers who make the camp what it is. The pay is an insult -- $2,050 for 7 weeks of hard labor. There is no air conditioning, and extra duties get sprung on people at the last minute. The pay is appears to be based on age -- I knew someone who made $4,000 his first summer there as an instructor with no prior teaching/camp experience (he was about 40 years old) whereas college students get paid half that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is an extremely high rate of turnover. It does not have to be this way. If you would value your employees, take time to get to know them, and be appreciative of their willing efforts, people would be much happier and more likely to work there again. The pay isn't even that big of a deal, if you would just treat your adult staff like adults and not like high school kids at a military academy. Management unfortunately treats employees as expendable peons.
