    Former Intern - Marketing and Design Intern in Shawnee, OK

    I worked at Oklahoma Baptist University as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff really cares about their students and generally gets to know each other. The campus is beautiful although small. There is also an easy work and home life balance.

    Cons

    This is a baptist institution so there tends to be a narrow way of thinking. If your views are more liberal or not baptist minded this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more room for workers and students to voice their opinions on school matters.

    I worked at Oklahoma Baptist University (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally relaxed work environment. The majority of my co-workers and department heads were great people. Campus is well maintained with a good environment for students. If you have college level dependents it can save you considerably.

    Cons

    Treatment of staff level employees by upper management is very poor. The salaries are far below market for most all positions and upper mobility is practically nil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You appear to be oblivious to the amount of animosity most staff have towards you, or you just don't care. Be more Christian in you attitude and consideration of all your employees and treat them more like family rather than just as a expendable business asset.

    I have been working at Oklahoma Baptist University as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy work environment and usually fun. Everyone is pretty easy to work with as well. I was a student worker and for the most part, everyone was easy to communicate with.

    Cons

    I didn't always get paid on time because of my boss which can be frustrating. Student workers do not get paid very much at all. You have to ask for a raise if you don't feel like you are getting enough money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that every person that is in charge of people pays gets their time sheets on time.

    I have been working at Oklahoma Baptist University part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, lots of new buildings, lots of campus activities and events to enjoy, most staff and faculty take a persona interest and care about students. Interdisciplinary faculty network and collaboration.

    Cons

    Lack of communication about job duties, little orientation and poor support. Some verbal intimidation and bullying observed - varies greatly across campus departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve work environment to a more positive Christian approach to faculty, staff and students. Be more forthcoming with salary information and contracts
