    I have been working at Lipscomb University

    Pros

    Co-workers are very nice and fun to work with. My boss is one of the best I have ever had.

    Cons

    You will never get an increase is salary here. The starting pay is ridiculously low and increases of only 2 to 3% percent are given each year to everyone across the board regardless of performance. Now, administration, that's another matter entirely. Their salaries are outrageous and there titles are inflated. The president is the most insincere speaker I have ever heard. Don't waste any time considering a position here. It will never be worth your time.

    I have been working at Lipscomb University as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Small but growing community of Christian lead management and staff.

    Cons

    There are is many events going on campus on any given day, parking becomes a large problem and finding place to park off site is necessary. Also, management seems very stubborn to change and does not have a good record of maintaining good relationships with staff and students.

    I have been working at Lipscomb University full-time

    Pros

    The campus atmosphere is fairly informal and friendly, with lots of interaction with students and co-workers across campus. Leadership seems pretty progressive, with lots of growth plans and opportunities to expand an exisiting program, given the right circumstances. With a master's degree, the ability to adjunct is a positive towards supplementing a salary on the low-end of area average. Time off is generous, education benefits are good, and spouse/child discounts at campus school and university are higher than average.

    Cons

    Financially, my experience has been challenging, with little ability to grow a salary or be rewarded for expanded work responsibilities and education as a staff member. Leadership can be distant and hierarchical, and most decisions at the mid to lower levels get "committeed" to death.

    I worked at Lipscomb University as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work within the Lipscomb Athletic office are hands down the reason I would work here again if given the opportunity. Everyone was helpful, and although I was receiving my MBA from Belmont University down the road, the professionalism and courtesy I received from every employee was second to none.

    Cons

    The only challenge of working in the Athletic office is that there is not a lot of money and not a lot of room for growth. I would encourage more meetings for expansion ideas in the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a think tank for fundraising ideas. Every person that works in the office is talented and capable of creativity. Do not look over the human capital.

    Pros

    It is a great place to work with many great benefits and coworkers.

    Cons

    The biggest down side is the pay is below market value. One of the greatest assets Lipscomb has are it's people but many are lured away with the opportunity to provide more for their families.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    at least compete with the state schools on salary.
