    High Point University strives to provide the best experience for students inside and outside of the classroom.

    Assistant Director of Greek Life and Resident Director (Current Employee) High Point, NC

    ProsHigh 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.

    ConsWithin 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 Senior ManagementFocus on more professional development opportunities for all staff members.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsCan 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 Senior ManagementInclude communication earlier to your staff so we can relay that message to our students.

    Sad to leave. But I had to go.

    Assistant (Former Employee) High Point, NC

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementDon'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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
