    I have been working at University of La Verne part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    A private university with state of the art facilities, including student community room, library, computer labs, and nice classrooms.
    No bad-behavior students
    Supportive colleagues

    Cons

    Salary for adjunct faculty is not competitive compared to other universities.
    No performance based salary systems. No matter how good/bad you teach your salary will be the same.
    No encouragement for part time lecturers to apply for full-time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider raising adjunct faculty's salary based on the students' feedback.

    Disappointing in many ways because things don't change at ULV in good ways.

    Former Employee - Email and Systems Administrative in La Verne, CA

    I worked at University of La Verne full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free tuition after four years.
    Lots of time off.
    Some real good people there.
    The organization shuts down near the end of the year.

    Cons

    In the IT Department, there isn't any real leadership. They have "managers" of course, but I felt there was a lack of leadership and there is a huge difference between those two roles. I also felt that the roles of the managers was a CYA perspective. The status quo has to be kept at ULV even if it is not what is best for the students and doesn't keep up with the changing technology. I think the organization really went down hill when Devorah came aboard. I am sure she is doing a good job raising the national exposure of the organization, but I think she mainly serves herself. I actually was banned from her home because I didn't kiss her husband's butt enough. Overall, I am 100% glad that I was laid off from this place and sent an email to my former boss telling how happy I was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to stop treating employees as if they should just be thankful that they have a job and that they should just shut up and not speak up when things can obviously be improved. I would also remind the current President that she is not Oprah, and therefore she doesn't need to be on the cover of almost every copy of the school magazine. A lot of the pictures I saw of her showed the students as props with the focus on her. The focus should be on the students and not be the Devorah show.

    I have been working at University of La Verne part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There's a sense of community and family on campus that creates a really positive environment. As with any job there are requirements and regulations to follow, but staff, faculty and administrators realize that employees have families and children and possibly school and other commitments outside of work and are glad to be flexible when the employee needs that.

    Cons

    Part-time employees aren't eligible for employee of the quarter nominations, nor can they be part of the classified committee for classified events on and off campus. The campus is growing, but not every department is seen as equal; as such there are very few areas of growth for employees, as employees, unless they want to look elsewhere.

    I worked at University of La Verne part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly, personal, informal. Easy to get along with staff, professors and administration.
    Very high sense of morality and inclusion. Personal attention that is rare. A religious backbone that stabilizes the common thread of teaching and working without being intrusive.
    Truly helping those who might otherwise not choose to go to college. It just feels good!

    Cons

    The school is small and resources may be slim. Some opportunities might not be available
    compared to larger campuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and emphasize the ethical foundation the school is built upon. It really stands out.
    Try and improve the quality of the Legal program. It's lagging far behind in the reviews.
