    I worked at Regis University full-time

    Pros

    great work life balance,
    great health care benefits,
    great opportunity to work a degree or certificate for free, and
    good holiday benefits

    Cons

    not open to new idea,
    slow pace of progress,
    little room for advancement,
    pay is well below market value, and
    unclear measures of success

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider flattening the hierarchical structure of communication and management, and
    Consider standardizing performance and goal metrics and knowing where they come from

    Low salaries and no professional development; dysfunctional, top-down, politically-focused leadership - need I say more?

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    I worked at Regis University full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Mission of the university is inspiring when carried out. Working with and for students and seeing them take action to positively impact the world is fulfilling and fun. There is understanding about needing to take time off for family emergencies, illness, bereavement. Non-management personnel are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with. Campus is a beautiful place to work.

    Cons

    Leadership decisions are politically motivated and not well-informed. Management is top-down, non-transparent and overbearing. Takes a long time for decisions to be made because every major issue requires a committee to come to a consensus and those on the committees are there for political reasons and not because of experience relevant to the issue. Waste a lot of money paying outside "experts" because they don't trust the expertise they have in house already. Pay is below market average and official HR policy is there is no personal development and no telecommuting. No performance reviews and no raises except for a university-wide 2% raise in the fall which has been cancelled more than 50% of my time here due to financial instability. Very difficult to move up and join the leadership clique. Parking is horrible. Employee morale is currently very low due to two rounds of layoffs in 2014. Most likely there are more to come. Depressing work environment with fear for keeping your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk your talk and bring your HR policies into the 21st century. Invest in your employees instead of third-party vendors and begin preparing for the next generation of leadership.

    Small University, Big Incompetance

    I have been working at Regis University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits and work flexibility were above average. Most colleagues were good people.

    Cons

    Hierarchical top down, non transparent, incompetent leadership. Most departments heavily micromanaged. Not generating revenue, not competitive in programs, over priced product, Employees must pay for parking that is often not available. 2% cost of living increases annually doesn't keep up with inflation, especially when they cancel the raises for 3 years straight. They don't internally hire, they outsource everything, and cross departmental communication is quite horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hierarchical structure of non leadership has Regis spinning its wheels. Compensation is low and micromanagement is high. Until Regis makes sound financial decisions and prioritizes the value of their programs they will struggle to be competitive. Innovation and program development are the ways to draw revenue and reduce costs.

    I have been working at Regis University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Teaching as an adjunct is rewarding and fun. Administration provides you a lot of freedom to enhance classes as you see fit.

    Cons

    As an adjunct you're fairly disconnected from your peers and boss. Online course content in software development classes can become stale quickly and it is difficult to get the content updated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for an online "staff" meeting quarterly to share problems / ideas.

    I worked at Regis University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tuition is usually covered for employees seeking a degree with the University; nice campus.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional environment; some working conditions are deplorable; age discrimination in some departments; parking; salaries are way below the market; benefits are average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A work environment the equivalent to the tv show "Survivor" has been created. Management/leadership has no idea how to treat people with dignity, respect, and integrity. Very clique-ish. The Jesuit values/experience that I loved as a student was not present as an employee. People were put in charge of projects that boosted their egos, but that they had no business, from a professional qualifications & knowledge standpoint, to lead, which was to the detriment of the project. They were put in charge for political reasons.
