    I have been working at Fresno Pacific University full-time

    Pros

    The people and culture here are incredible: the values and collegiality are filled with grace. I truly love where I work. Students receive individual attention from faculty and are truly mentored here at Fresno Pacific University.

    Cons

    Those not used to higher ed may find it a difficult transition from the business world, which is much faster-paced.

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to develop more competitive compensation as some areas are under the industry standard. We often cannot retain talent because they receive better offers elsewhere. The benefits package is nice, although the health insurance cost is higher for individuals or couples without children than a lot of other industries.

    Pros

    Sense of community on campus really has a connection between everyone you serve a day.

    Cons

    School always being a pressure, many people call out all the time or flake on covering your shift and you have to take the fall for that

    Advice to Management

    take into consideration how much a team can do at a shift time and realistically give tasks with appropiate time limits on it.

    Pros

    Wonderful people, supportive & encouraging office culture, opportunity for increased responsibility, job training, weekly devotionals, work life balance

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that I was not allowed to stay longer. The position I held was only available for students. Because I graduated, I was no longer eligible for employment in that position.

    Pros

    Investing in student lives, Department supervisors supportive of adjuncts, lots of opportunities in degree completion. Opportunities to build both professional and personal contacts. A good "second" job for adjuncts to give back...

    Cons

    salary is probably on average for private university adjuncts, but is a bit low....

    Pros

    There is always something fun happening on campus. The benefits are good and the school is continuing to grow.

    Cons

    Base salaries are low, like most non-profit organizations. However, between the Holidays and generous leave plans there is plenty of time off to manage work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on more career development opportunities for current employees.

    Pros

    A Christian environment with opportunities to further your education, nice co-workers, beautiful grounds, holidays off, non-smoking environment, and the opportunity to meet people from different cultures

    Cons

    The college pays very poorly and requires every employee to work not only their own job, but adds "other duties as assigned" to your job description, which ultimately means you are required to hold several other people's job duties as well.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how poorly your middle management treats other staff. You are losing the best and brightest to other employers. Install an anonymous way for complaints to move from lower levels to people in positions to change.
