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

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here is that the faculty and staff treat you like family. Everyone truly cares about education at this institution.

    Cons

    The pay is not very competitive unless you have been there a long time or are tenured (I assume).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Faster and clearer communication with part-time or temporary employees is much needed!

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

    Pros

    Great environment, everyone who works there really cares about what they are doing.

    Cons

    Pay is low for the industry. Difficult to find good housing in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come together as a team. The battle between student life and administration hurts the organization. You can work past this and build a fantastic University if you will put ego's aside.

    I worked at University of Redlands as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    It was a very pleasant experience, my opinion mattered and the people are great. There is fantastic leadership and depending on your position there can be any amount of employee empowerment.

    Cons

    My work was volunteer, but I've heard that pay in some positions isn't top notch. The campus is gorgeous though, just make sure to ask all of the questions that you want to know about before committing.

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

    Pros

    The work has required that I learn new perspectives and skills, but has allowed me to work independently and in a team or structured environment. They have allowed for my personality and career goals to shape which projects I take on and have provided support for my own goals.

    Cons

    The hours were limited by my student employee status. I would have preferred to have had at least 20 or 30 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider opening up opportunities to provide student employees with more hours and further responsibility. Make sure not to change the support for personal development and career development that currently exists in this work environment.

    I have been working at University of Redlands

    Pros

    Gorgeous campus, excellent learning environment and truly an excellent university

    Cons

    New president is a bit clueless and doesn't seem to have any sort of personal commitment to the university. Their staffing choices are questionable and the whole atmosphere is bureaucratic and slightly inept (if you've worked in business before you will see this, if not you might enjoy the relaxed atmosphere).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate your hiring practices

    I have been working at University of Redlands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The students are nice and friendly.

    Cons

    The salaries are low and the position is extremely time-consuming and demanding. The university has few resources, despite the high tuition, and pressures professors to become overly involved in the personal lives of students to create a false impression that it is a caring institution with a strong commitment to personal attention. Nothing could be less true... This approach exhausts the best professors while creating unsustainable expectations among students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to give departments with more students more resources...
