    I worked at University of La Verne as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working as marketing intern in the learning enhancement center. I fell free to communicate with people. They have good working condition, nice supervisor, friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    pay per hour for designers is not so reasonable, those works have to be done in the my personal time, which won't be count.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is good in general. But they can still improve the efficiency and effectiveness, which may make things better

    I worked at University of La Verne

    Pros

    I worked for 4 years in the Department of Photography a student worker during the school year, and a regular employee during the summer. I had such an enriching experience! I gained and improved office skills, became the department archivist, gallery assistant, dark room assistant, and computer lab assistant. Great artistic work environment, friendly and reasonable bosses-all at the school I was attending.

    The university as a whole was pleasant to work for, and everyone was friendly and helpful.

    Learned many skills in many areas.

    Cons

    Department didn't have the budget to hire me on after graduation, despite their desires to do so. Can't really complain, as it was a job to have while attending.

    I have been working at University of La Verne

    Pros

    Tuition remission, people, culture, personal growth opportunities are available and offered freely, time off policies are generous, but you often can't use them as you are too busy

    Cons

    Too few people, too much work, very cheap, poor work life balance, there is an expectation of being available for all managers, regardless of level to be available and answering emails (even stupid ones) 24 hours per day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people right, improve your retention and reward of good employees. Stop letting them walk out of the door.

    I have been working at University of La Verne part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great option for working flexible hours while still in school. Ability to flex schedule and to get homework done when things are slow. Students are treated very well.

    Cons

    Not always the most interesting work, but that's to be expected with this kind of position.

    I have been working at University of La Verne part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They work around your schedule. Easy going to work right after or between classes.

    Cons

    You end up doing the majority of your bosses work.
    No higher pay than $10, you start at $8 and only go up $0.25 each year unless promoted to manager. Won't be hired unless you are under federal work study majority of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You make enough money off tuition; instead of wasting millions on the presidents new house, start hiring students based off skill not if they are on federal work study.

    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.
