    While the pay is good for at LU and Lynchburg, the pay is less than average against the IT industry.

    Pros

    good Christian atmosphere reasonable work load, good benefits

    Cons

    the only con that I can think of is the pay is fairly mediocre

    Advice to Management

    don't obsess with "You Matter", instead do what you can to raise compensation

  7. Great work environment!

    Former Employee - Tutor in Lynchburg, VA

    I worked at Liberty University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Colleagues were easy to work with. Flexible scheduling--you can set up your schedule around your class schedule. Also, being able to do homework, etc. during work hours when you are not tutoring a student is a great benefit. Finally, tutoring was a great way to connect with students and professors.

    Cons

    There were no true cons. The closest to a con was having to go to Green Hall from DeMoss.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor the quality of tutoring sessions at least once a semester. If possible, please move all tutoring opportunities to main campus.

    Pros

    Faculty and staff were very uplifting and loving. Always there to pray with you and encouraging.

    Cons

    Pay was terrible. Even with a bachelor's degree I still only made minimum wage. Should have made double that.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people more and they will stick around longer.

  9. Great opportunities for anyone initially starting out in an office environment.

    Pros

    Many wonderful employees, mostly Christian environment, beautiful campus. Benefits are great (free college after a year for you and your family) and good medical benefits. Some great departments to work for while a few are just horrible.

    Cons

    Low pay; told many times that your position is "at will" (meaning they can let you go without warning or a reason); some management employees believe that they are entitled to material items.

    Advice to Management

    Since you have to sign an agreement that you will abide by the rules and that you will uphold the University's Christian beliefs, then those that don't follow the rules should be let go. Some men are rather rude to female employees and manage to get away with it.

    Pros

    Liberty is a Christian university; therefore, if you are a christian, you work with a lot of like minded believers.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up here because they bank on hiring young students and expect the turn over ratio to be high.

    Advice to Management

    nothing really.. management usually are the same age as you so sometimes there is a conflict of interest when you grow to be friends with your management.
