    It is an amazing experience.

    Student Worker

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou can make lifelong friendships and good relationships with the people you meet here. Everyone is quite friendly if you are friendly to them first.

    ConsI worked during the summer and made less than a sweat shop worker in tangible money and still under minimum wage if you included the scholarship I received. You have to love the job to do it - it's not for the money.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider hiring people who are not all from Chi or Gamma ;D

    Christian in name only

    (Current Employee)
    Edmond, OK

    ProsThe students are generally sincere and hard-working; many professors are genuine and well-prepared. Schedules can be flexible. Focus on student involvement in missions commendable.

    ConsLack of communication within and between departments and administration. In-fighting, favoritism, lack of courage and character on the part of those in positions to make decisions. Very superficial, lip-service "intellectual" Christianity, lacking in depth and heart.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communication, true desire to do the right thing (not just the convenient or safe thing), follow-through on promises. Not being driven by money and appearances, but by truth and integrity.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work in higher education!

    Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsChristian working environment that is relaxed yet professional. Great benefits for employees. Semesters are fast-paced which makes the time fly by.

    ConsLow pay considering amount of work expected to perform; little employee development for staff, little advancement available.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall, the experience has been quite disappointing.

    Assistant Professor (Current Employee)
    Edmond, OK

    ProsInteraction with young people.
    Colleagues are typically very intellectual and interesting to work with.

    ConsVery poor organizational infrastructure.
    Very poor communication throughout the university.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReplace Senior Administration with personnel with the qualifications, credentials, and work experience necessary to be effective. Look outside the current administration and faculty to fill the next open positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Library Achieves (Former Employee)

    Great place to work

    Counselor (Former Employee)
    Edmond, OK

    ProsGreat Christian atmosphere and environment to work at. There are many intangible perks built in such as lots of additional time off due throughout the year than you would typically see in other companies. Management is very personable and engaging with the various level of employees throughout campus.

    ConsAdvancement can be limited due to the fact many people stay for a long time. This simply speaks to how much people enjoy working there. Compensation is most likely on the lower end, but this is off-set by many of the other intangible benefits that employees receive.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Loved it

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Edmond, OK

    ProsI loved working at OC. It's a supportive Christian environment.

    ConsThe pay isn't that great because it's a small university. Most offices have little room for advancement.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a teaching college

    Arts & Sciences Professor (Current Employee)
    Oklahoma City, OK

    ProsFlexible schedule, missions focus, shorter school year, decent IT environment,

    ConsLow pay, incompetence from too many staff, too many faculty who feel they don't have to work as hard because they make less $, very spoiled and whiny students, students with the amazing combination of being very spiritual and very selfish, What is the Academy of Leadership and Liability?

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more outside perspectives, don't hire any staff straight out of OC graduation, marketing department really needs to see how the world works outside of OC
