    Pros

    Benefits were good, hours were nice. There are a few hard working staff members who really care about the university.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low! Not a lot of upward mobility if you're not on the "A" list. Even then the opportunities are limited. Leadership isn't interested in employee concerns.

    Pros

    People can be friendly (most time just nosey), and there are great benefits (but perhaps thats compensating for the pay).

    Cons

    No room for upward mobility. Too many staff don't take the job serious enough so no progression is made overall.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, great values, and a beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Pay is not very competitive and sometimes, it takes times to get things done—I'm told it's a "higher ed" syndrome.

    Pros

    easy job. and they basically let me work unsupervised once I proved I was competent.

    Cons

    Sexual harrasment from superiors. (you just learn to ignore it) Laziness from your supervisors. Blame always placed on the lower employees even when they're undeniably not at fault.

    Advice to Management

    They need some efficiency and work ethic training. In my time working at La Sierra, In about 3 months I found myself doing 50% of my department's work.


  11. Not a bad place to work, but not somewhere to work forever.

    Pros

    It's close by my house.

    Cons

    The pay is considerably modest.

    Advice to Management

    Security officers and on-call supervisors can't expect not to be called during their time off.
