    Pros

    Depending on where you are on campus, you are paid well for the area it is in. Some room for advancement.

    Cons

    Some parts of campus are paid better than other parts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People find out they are paid less and are resentful.

    Pros

    Better than not having a job, I guess.

    Cons

    The place is run by a meddlesome anti-intellectual who is on public record denouncing academics and brags about how few books he has read. This man yells "Sink!" and administration asks "How low?" The depths to how low this place can sink seem inestimable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions for educational reasons. Make personnel decisions based on merit.

    Pros

    The college offers generous educational opportunities for full time faculty and staff. Paid time off is average within the industry, with additional time being granted during the holidays.

    Cons

    Pay is far below average, even considering the location of the college. Advancement opportunities are rare, leaving overqualified employees stuck in lower positions.

    Pros

    If you are in the sciences you will have a great place to work; largest building on campus.

    Cons

    If you are in the humanities do not come. Poorly maintained office building; chair of board dismissal of value of humanities; average salary for assoc and full professors at least 15 thousand below average; no tenure; no respect for faculty opinions; climate of fear of dismissal for any act of criticism; president a figure head with little knowledge of faculty; increasing demand for scholarly production with no decrease in faculty load (4 courses per semester) and no sabbaticals. No cultural life; little faculty interaction beyond casual conversations in the hallway. One fourth of humanities college left with some after a couple of years and some long time faculty. No longer a family; now a factory assembly line. There are better places to teach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why try; no one is listening.

    Pros

    It's a beautiful location. The faculty and staff are very friendly. Everyone is seen as being part of a family. There are many opportunities for professional development. New employees are frequently asked how they are doing to make sure that they are adapting to the new job well.

    Cons

    It's in a rural location. There isn't much to do in the community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are doing a great job in treating employees with respect and providing them with recognition. It would be nice for announcements about new programs and plans for new buildings to be announced as they occur.

    The surroundings are beautiful and people are friendly but personal growth potential is limited.

    I have been working at Lincoln Memorial University

    Pros

    Friendly community, quiet, beautiful campus, faculty members are mostly caring, dedicated, and compassionate, there's a happy and proud student community, school has a charming history, the school welcomes a diverse student and faculty population.

    Cons

    Campus and community are a cultural dead zone. There isn't even a student newspaper. Little if any opportunity for staff professional advancement. Technology and infrastructure are abysmal; frequent outages of EVERYTHING from email service to heat and water. Some facilities and buildings glitter while others are decrepit. High turnover of administrative positions; many less-competent hangers-on. Decisionmaking incredibly slow moving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you continue to offer humanities, give those students and staff a fraction of the investment of resources that you give to your medical, business, and pre-professional programs. Be more receptive to suggestions from mid-level staff and instructors. Management style is way too much top-down.
