    Pros

    Tremendous environment. Students are eager to take instruction. Administration is transparent and fully vested in student success.

    Cons

    Some people who are holdovers from previous administrations harbor bitterness for being passed over for promotions. As with any organization, not everyone is on board for change. President is too nice because he allows those who are very negative and critical remain on staff. I'd fire them for insubordination.

    Advice to Management

    Some people who don't share the vision become toxic. When people are doing well, celebrate them. When they aren't doing well, sternly correct them. No passes given!

    Nepotism. Unprofressionalism. Disorganization. DO NOT WORK HERE.

    Pros

    Small school, so you really get to know your students and other staff members. Older alums had great experiences which let you know that at some point the school was great.

    Cons

    Huge lack of resources President expects results but does not provide tools for employees to be successful Nepotism at an ALL TIME high --- there are so many people employed here who are related. They meet NONE of the job qualifications. Which plays a role in the overall unsuccess of the College Employees are treated as though they are disposable President actually told the entire staff to "unplan their plans" and come in on a Saturday and work 12+ hours with absolutely NO comp time given. The vacation time is pitiful Check out the recruitment vehicles... The red beat up corollas that are never, EVER fixed or equip to be on the road Mismanagement of funds - example: Artist that came (famous) had to pay for his own gas when he came to Jarvis Fest because the Jarvis Exxon card declined.

    Advice to Management

    The entire cabinet is corrupt; this is no exaggeration. From the president, to his "Mississppi Mafia," to the other infamous VP's. I generally do not write reviews about former jobs, but I have absolutely never worked anywhere this ridiculous in my entire life; it's like a live circus. I would not suggest that anyone take a job here even if you are desperate. Stop bringing in friends and family, and actually hire people with credentials and experience.

    Pros

    Trying to help the kids

    Cons

    Getting projects approved for funding and unfair treatment

    Advice to Management

    Need to address the fair treatment of all employees no matter their race or religion; use the approved funds for the designated projects in a timely manner; don't force your students to vote for who you want them to vote for, they should have the right to select their own candidate;

    Pros

    Great opportunity to work across multiple divisions. It's such a small school, you can get lots of administrative experience while working as a faculty member.

    Cons

    Located in a microscopic town. Much of the work load is passed off to younger/newer employees.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employees "Thank you." Sometimes it's okay to help some people decide to retire by not renewing their contract.


  7. Challenging and rewarding experience.

    Pros

    The HR office is very helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    The payroll office needs to be more professional in dealing with the employee payments.

    Advice to Management

    They need to take a closer look at the student progresses and learning qualities, and provide the student success coaches.

    Pros

    Small social network of faculty and staff.

    Cons

    Poor pay, poor benefits. Incompetent management at ALL levels. Crumbling infrastructure. You will NEVER receive at raise at Jarvis Christian College. All of the administrators (including the Board of Directors, apparently) are fools!

    Advice to Management

    Give us a salary increase! The pay is PATHETIC. Get a grip! You guys do not know how to listen.

    Pros

    Small employer. Good co-worker relationships.

    Cons

    Just about everything else--awful salaries and benefits; poor physical facilities; bad management, and on and on and on. Employees have not had meaningful raises in years! Job evaluations are done so poorly that they are meaningless.

    Advice to Management

    Get a grip--try to get Jarvis Christian College up to the SECOND worst employer in the country!
