    I worked at Lincoln Memorial University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lincoln Memorial University helps you get close to you goals by achieving a high level education. It also provides a great environment for you to excel your skills and perform well in every aspect of your academic career.

    Cons

    Lincoln Memorial University lacks of more community support and activities that help bringing the community and the university together in order to share experiences and promote social level.

    Advice to Management

    Build strong relations with community centers, where the name and status of LMU can be taken to a better level of professionalism.

    I worked at Lincoln Memorial University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IT group is close knit, good challenges to tackle, never a boring moment, plenty of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    The only thing I could say is that the pay is on the lesser than mid-grade side for any position you want.

    Advice to Management

    Give IT resources proper allocation of staffing and compensation. They do good work!

    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 Management

    People find out they are paid less and are resentful.

    Demoralizing.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Lincoln Memorial University full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Lincoln Memorial University full-time (More than 10 years)

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.
