Pros

You can get another degree or graduate degree through tuition remission which is great. Supervisor is very approachable and flexible regarding time off.

Cons

Overall salaries are not as much compared to other similar positions at other colleges, and I think it prohibits those who would be a good match for positions (ex. professors, other positions).

Advice to Management

LMU will have it's first lay President, David Burcham who has been interim President and I feel has been a very good leader.

    Pros

    LMU understands that students have a hectic schedule outside work, and are very lenient when it comes to taking time off to complete academic work.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy at LMU means that it is very hard to work with financial aid when there is a problem on your account, and the e-time system is inefficient. Very often the immediate supervisor has to intervene when there is a problem with being paid. Also it is sometimes months before the first payment is received (of course you will still get all your pay, but it might all arrive at once). The fact that LMU forces you to choose between direct deposit and having the money paid into your tuition means that there is less personal control over funds. It is hard to know how much money you have in your bank account unless you query your bank itself.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a better system for one side of the university to talk to the other side. Even though LMU is a small school, it is hard to figure out what is going on in other departments.

    Pros

    Casual atmosphere and working with students is rewarding. Orientation to new employees is comprehensive. Beautiful campus and location. Lots of paid time off.

    Cons

    Politics within organization are overbearing. Success is not measurable in most positions. Ego of coworkers must be dealt with. Immature staff that act like they are the students. Underpaid and overworked staff with some people who are useless holding back the organization.

    Advice to Management

    After orientation it seems like a great place to work until reality sets in months later when you ask yourself, what am I working for? Recognize hard work and cut loose the people who have been there forever, do no work, and hold everyone back. Cut back on staff drinking activities, and focus more on wellbeing in the workplace. Also, budgets could be managed more efficiently so money isn't wasted on menial items and can be put to bettr use to improve the workplace as a whole.
