    Pros

    The campus is very pretty and well designed. The city of Lynchburg is just large enough to provide basic amenities while avoiding the pains of big-city life.

    Cons

    Too many of the students are obnoxious East Coast students who couldn't get into more prestigious universities, so settle on LC. The teaching load is high and the support for research is mediocre at best.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new president. Garren has been there much too long.

    Everyone is very caring. The staff makes you feel welcome and a part of the team.

    As a smaller school, there are some challenges with not always having enough people to do the job at hand.

    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 Management

    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.


  7. Feels like family, but salary can be low.

    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.

    Great people, and enjoyable work environment.

    Typical to a lot of education work environments, moving up can be difficult and take a long while.

    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)

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Tight community, beautiful campus, good place to live.

    Cons

    Too small, the faculty is overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the school it should be larger as more students are accepted every year.
