    I worked at Fresno Pacific University part-time (more than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at Fresno Pacific University part-time (more than 5 years)

    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....

    I have been working at Fresno Pacific University

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Fresno Pacific University

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
