    Pros

    High Point University offers its employees many different incentives to work hard. There is a constant push for innovation and a strong focus on providing a consistent brand through positive customer service.

    Cons

    Within my office, there is a strong divide between some of the supervisors and other staff. Sometimes there are challenges in explaining expectations for position that can later create tension between employees and their supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on more professional development opportunities for all staff members.

    Pros

    Great perks of traveling is that you can keep your hotel, rental car, & airline points. Have the opportunity to visit places you would not have gone to otherwise. If you are a graduate of the school, it is easy to talk about and connect with students.

    Cons

    Can have poor communication within the office. They are attempting to work on that and are improving on office morale. The group of people I work with now are the best we've ever had in this office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Include communication earlier to your staff so we can relay that message to our students.

    I worked at High Point University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to grow within an organization, is an environment I THRIVE in. At High Point University that is the exact work environment I was a part of. Unfortunately my significant other got accepted to Law School in another state, so we had to move. I am currently looking for a job, but not in Higher Education because I KNOW that it won't be anything like High Point University! The way the President is hands on with all of the projects within the University is unreal, I am not quite sure the man is human. President Qubein is an Extraordinary Leader for all of High Point. I was just glad to be a part of it. At High Point I felt like I was part of a family, and more importantly a team with one goal...the students.

    Cons

    The only con...is if you can't keep up in the fast paced environment that is and makes High Point University the Higher Education institution that it is today!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to ask for help, there are plenty of offices and resources that are available, you just have to know who to ask.
