    I worked at Regis University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Previously, this was a wonderful place to work. Great benefits (especially employee tuition benefits) and a very caring, friendly culture.

    Cons

    Pay here has always been significantly lower than market, but the atmosphere and other benefits would make up for that. With the culture becoming more typically corporate, this balance is disappearing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this place has become far too much about the bottom line and less about service. Moving far away from "what ought we to do" and have been treating dedicated employees with little regard.

    I have been working at Regis University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoy my job with Regis. I have had multiple opportunities to improve professionally and the education benefit is incredible. My department changes frequently to keep up with industry changes as well as university changes. My pay is extremely good considering the low level of stress for my job most of the year. I frequently get encouragement from leadership in and out of my area. The health and time off benefits are also quite good.

    Cons

    Extremely rigid pay rules with no increase for two years. And while the department I work in is excellent there is a lot of flux in much of the university, which has caused stress everywhere. The only complaint I have is no contraception coverage for the health benefits.

    Current Employee - Affiliate Faculty in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Regis University as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Get to teach friendly students in a small class setting.
    The faculty I've met are friendly and great teachers.

    Cons

    Contracts are not sent out on time.
    For a school that "cares" about social justice, the pay is abysmal for adjuncts. The prof gets paid 1k per credit for the entire semester but the students pay over $400 per class. Adjuncts don't even get great support and have no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay adjuncts a more reasonable amount for the effort they put into teaching.

    I have been working at Regis University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tuition Benefit - If you choose to use it
    Great work experience - I've been given responsibilities above and beyond what I was hired for. Looks good on my resume for future jobs.

    Cons

    Pay - You will not be paid what you are worth. If you like to work for pennies this is the place.
    Workload - They are on a hiring freeze because of the financial situation Regis is currently in. You will be given more work than you are paid for.
    Support - Severely lacking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There need to be some major changes University-wide. All the good people have left and are leaving.

    I have been working at Regis University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Employees are able to obtain one undergraduate degree and one graduate degree for themselves, and employee’s immediate family is allowed to obtain one undergraduate degree at no cost.

    Cons

    At Regis University there is zero communication between departments of the University, no one departments knows what they are doing, let alone coordinating with other supporting departments to achieve a goal. The staff morale of the University is very low with many of the staff members having little to no job fulfillment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to fall back there university mission of “men and women in service to others” This motto has been set aside in regards to generating revenue.

    Pros

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

    slow pace of progress,
    little room for advancement,

    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?

    I worked at Regis University full-time (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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO

    I have been working at Regis University full-time (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.
