    amazing environment, no dog eat dog personalities, people are ready to work collaboratively, amazing bosses. amazing benefits, easy to be an influencer, beautiful campus.

    There is a lot that the university has to deal with in terms of religious freedoms and that comes in the way of it performing it's daily duties.

    Pros

    IWU is a great place to work. Free education, 12 days of vacation, 13 holidays, and lots of sick time.

    Cons

    It has been a great place, but you need an advanced to degree to move up.

    Pros

    There are no pros worth taking a job here

    Cons

    I hate it here. The enrollment leadership is gossipy, cliquish and lacking in integrity. I can't wait to find any job to get out of here.

    Advice to Management

    Retire and let someone who actually cares about people manage us.

    Pros

    Vacation and sick leave. (Basically any time you aren't at work.)

    Cons

    The pay is lousy. The bosses, the upper management, the complete lack of true concern for the student. Every department is out for themselves- to do the least work, to not give up any power and to resist anything that will make them do more work.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why we exist and start living up to it. If you can't do that, do us all a favor and leave.

    Pros

    I can't think of any pro that make it worth it except that I don't have to drive that far to get to work.

    Cons

    Middle management is just collecting a paycheck. They wish they were still in the 1990's- paper applications anyone? The senior management does nothing to make them change.

    Advice to Management

    Change for the better or I am afraid the university will keep going down the drain.

    Pros

    Adoption and Down Payment Benefits are good. My peers are good people and some of the AD's are great.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else. The pay is terrible compared to other schools in online enrollment and we've lost a ton of people to jobs that will pay them a lot more and they get to stay at home. The city has fallen apart and it is hard to see how bad it has gotten. We've had boss after boss after boss in AES enrollment and they can't keep someone in the job. The good old boys (and girls) club here is strong and if you come in from anywhere else you are treated like an outsider. If you want to change or improve anything you have to fight for it, knowing you probably won't win. We finally had a boss that taught us how to do our jobs and gave us support and today he's leaving for another job that will probably pay better and actually want to get better. We finally were going somewhere and now we're stuck with out-of-touch upper management who like to dress up as Santa to win points and a secretary who runs him.

    Advice to Management

    Stop gossiping in your little circle and recognize that those of us in the cubes have something to offer. Stop saying scripture and then not following it. It is embarrassing and a poor witness. One of my bosses' gave their notice and his boss immediately started intercepting our emails to him without our (or our bosses) knowledge even though he was still employed for almost a month. He got caught and fessed up, but it looked vindictive and insecure and frankly, it showed us the VP's true colors.

    Pros

    Flexible and great supervisors! Responsibilities are manageable and easy to complete. You can sometimes do homework if you have completed your other duties. Great environment to be in!

    Cons

    There aren't too many cons to a student assistant position. However, the other offices may be different, but my office is wonderful. Everyone is very friendly and helpful! The only con would be the low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.
