    Review of tutoring

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat team to work with

    ConsMinimum hours to be able to work

     

    Demoralizing.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBetter than not having a job, I guess.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementMake decisions for educational reasons. Make personnel decisions based on merit.

    Decent work environment

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    After over a decade of service to LMU I have decided to leave.

    Professor (Former Employee)

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

    ConsIf 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 Senior ManagementWhy try; no one is listening.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wonderful place to work

    (Current Employee) Harrogate, TN

    ProsIt'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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFriendly 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.

    ConsCampus 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
