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

    Pros

    Small classes. Know every one. Administration is very friendly. Have to commit a crime to be terminated. Not a place for driven individuals looking to be achievers.

    Cons

    Administration is not trustworthy and will take advantage especially if money can be saved. No pay raises. Benefits are always changing. Poor budget management. Policy in past has been to sacrifice employees to correct management and spending over mistakes. Development axed to save money. Budgets and money is territorial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a standard. Learn to make a budget and charge a tuition that supports the university goals. Employees are not trading chips to fix million dollar VP mistakes.

    I have been working at McMurry University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a very caring place. People work together well. It is a family atmosphere. Supervisors are usually great. Changes within the past few years have been very positive. There is a great attitude on campus. Working with college studnets is an exciting adventure.

    Cons

    The salary is on the low side. Inspite if the salary, the campus has many long-time employees. There are many positives which keep people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things people focused. We always appreciate you hearing us out. Knowing we have a voice, makes a difference.
