    I worked at Lynchburg College as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The staff is so friendly and I loved working as an intern in the Department I was in. If I wanted to live in VA I would have pursued a full time job with LC.

    Cons

    I was hoping the internship would be paid but i did get it for academic credit so I wasn't too upset about it.

    I worked at Lynchburg College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People care about and support each other in their best interests - whether those interests are on or off campus.

    Cons

    Those who work inside of the classroom often work long hours and take work home regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I encourage you to continue listening to your employees. They are in the trenches daily and know what is working and not working for them and for the students. If the faculty/staff aren't consistently supported, how can they support the students?! Think about it... it works much like the "happy husband/wife, happy home/life" saying.

    I have been working at Lynchburg College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, ability to take classes and coursework (pursue degree) while working full time, good benefits and feeling of "we're all in it together". Small college atmosphere where you can get to know faculty, staff, and students quickly. Great history and academic standards.

    Cons

    Salary can be low depending on job, have to squeak by on small budgets sometimes, can sometimes hit a wall with support for improvements to department.

    Pros

    College cares about it's employees

    Cons

    Hours are terrible with not much chance to advance (unless a buddy gets appointed as a supervisor)

    Appoint personnel based on training and experience, not on the buddy system

    I have been working at Lynchburg College

    Pros

    -great benefits
    -good amount of respect for time off needed for family illness, etc
    -very caring community
    -jobs are fairly stable and secure

    Cons

    -"family" atmosphere is used to explain unprofessional approaches
    -loyalty is rewarded over performance
    -upper management is sometimes blind to the needs of the "common worker"
    -wide disparity across different departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to encourage and listen to feedback in a safe, anonymous way from the masses. There's a lot going on that doesn't make it to the top.
