    I have been working at Loma Linda University part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment with 20 working hours per week, which gives enough time to concentrate on your studies. Good christian and spiritual environment. Understanding bosses.

    Cons

    They only pay you 25% of your tuition which doesn't help much in affording most of your expenses. Besides that, it is a good working and learning environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the pay from 25% of tuition to at least 50%. That would be helpful :)

    I worked at Loma Linda University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Accrual vacation time quickly especially after 5 years of employment.

    Cons

    Higher positions are limited to SDAs, so you can only go up so high in this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work harder and get people that know what they are doing.

    Current Employee - Web Content Manager in Loma Linda, CA
    Current Employee - Web Content Manager in Loma Linda, CA

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Generally, people are very nice. Employees enjoy a wide variety of quality benefits that are also affordable. There are also many opportunities to volunteer and cater to personal "wholeness" in mind, body and spirit.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership and all decisions are driven by politics - not what will create the greatest value. It's very challenging to have a significant impact or feel like your individual experience holds value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please require leadership training before allowing managers and up to begin assuming complete management roles (i.e. during a 90-day probationary period). The leadership in multiple departments is lacking - micromanagers, unrealistic expectations and no encouragement to develop professionally.

    I have been working at Loma Linda University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employment, heavy work load, opportunity, cost of living to salary, parking is free

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking though there is a lot of administration, compensation is based upon ones ability to request and ones connections to the leaderships inner circle, no promotion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate the faculty you wish to keep and promote them timely without their having to beg. Release early in their tenure those you do not wish to keep so as to give them opportunity to learn from their mistakes and apply this learning at a new venue.

    Pros

    Good community health programs, promotes work-life balance, seminars available for continuing education, they also promote volunteering activities

    Cons

    Very nepotistic, highly conservative, might be hard to get used to if you aren't into praying/spirituality/going to chapel, private university so they favor those with similar beliefs and have preference/ protect their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please review the cons listed

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

    Pros

    Dean of Women at Kate Lindsay Hall will work with your school schedule. You are more likely to be promoted to RA position which will give you room-rent compensation instead of hourly pay. Promotions to Full-time Resident Assistant is possible pending you show excellent time-management skills, keep in close connection with other RA's and make your desires clear with the deans.

    Cons

    Prepare to dedicate time and effort for work related activities all days of the week. Raises are not available unless you are promoted to full time RA or student dean, where pay is compensated differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work at Kate Lindsay Hall.

    Pros

    Caring Coworkers
    Company does many different programs and has many features that benefit the employee. Little things like giving out pedometers to encourage walking, and putting out newsletters to let employees know what is going on are not unappreciated.

    Cons

    There is a lot of work to get done every day and it can be very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good atmosphere, and make sure to never forget about the employees.
