    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University full-time

    Pros

    Family like feel among the employees, lots of paid time off, perfect for those with a family themselves. A place that changes lives. Support from your management and team is felt.

    Cons

    More opportunities to move up, small campus, so it's easy to be in your position for a long time (which can be viewed good or bad).

    Advice to Management

    Activities for different departments to interact and get to know each other more (personally). Create additional senior or "upper" job opportunities that employees can strive for.

    Taking time to learn in your field off work its important to you line off work. Your time in your field off work will give you a better experience such as making you management material for work. Upper experience will prove your better in the line off work.

    Pros

    They provide free parking to employees.

    Cons

    As a Methodist Church affiliated university the Texas Wesleyan University administration is expected to always put students and employees first. In truth, they are all about the money like all for-profit schools. As someone who was familiar with their plans I can tell you that they have one goal in mind = fill the seats with students by any means necessary. From out-of-date faculty hanging on until retirement to underfunded facilities this is not the school to send your students. Tuition is criminally high in terms of their future job prospects. Their marketing and admissions push the school's high quality while they accept an embarrassing number of unqualified students. The large foreign student population is largely unable to converse or write english. Since they pay full tuition the university just looks the other way and throws them to the wolves. The vast majority of regular incoming students are forced to take multiple remedial courses for no credit to 'qualify' to enroll in degree courses. Once on campus, the majority of students learn the truth with poor science, technology and CS facilities and courses and transfer to other schools. Similarly, you will never hear of a employee recommending Wesleyan to their friends or family. The truth is they know what is going on and are all to aware how easily the quantity v. quality students business model is doomed. You know something is wrong when the majority of the money goes toward marketing, advertising and paid admissions sales. Save yourself the aggravation, expense and heartache and go somewhere that respects you and where your degree is respected.

    Advice to Management

    If you are ready to listen to your shortcomings and not your dedicated sycophant middle management then I suggest you have a real conversation with alumni, students and employees. Have some real public forums, invite the local media so that you have to face up to what you are creating.

    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of days off (2 weeks at Christmas, every Friday during the summer, spring break, winter break, Easter, Thanksgiving) Very casual atmosphere, but not a lot is expected of you Some colleagues are friendly University if finally spending money on the school and upkeep - so it's beginning to look like what these kids are paying for.

    Cons

    Depends on who you know - if you work for a terrible boss then you are not going anywhere and there is no one who can, or more importantly, will step up to help,. Usually in May or August, key people on campus are let go because of a "change in direction" Lots of uncertainty about "will I be next" Once you have a target on your back, you will be "fired for cause" - and they will fight your unemployment No room for promotion and very faculty favored (to the extent staff are

    Advice to Management

    Makes some changes in long term uppper level staff that haven't kept up or are here because they can't go anywhere else.

    Pros

    Stress-free environment. 4-day work week during the summer. Lots of holidays.

    Cons

    Lots of read tape, bureaucracy and politics. Senior management are clueless on IT and are reluctant to delegate and empower an IT leader. Low pay compared to virtually anywhere else, including other education institutions.

    Advice to Management

    Hire, support and empower an IT leader reporting directly to the president.
