    Pros

    The IT staff was always willing to assist the campus departments.

    Cons

    The IT department was very understaffed for the number of on campus employees. Each department was expected to have a "Super User" of the system who was expected to have superior knowledge about their department's software module, in addition to being the department manager. This is itself was a full time job.

    Advice to Management

    Assign an IT staff member to assist specific departments on campus i.e. Campus Life, Accounting AR, Account AP, Registrar, Housing etc. This will prevent ALL departments from vying for the attention of an IT staff member to assist in their related software issues.

    Pros

    Decent pay and somewhat flexible hours. Most people are kind and accomadating, which makes working here easy for the most part.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit abrasive at times and can be somewhat out of touch with the needs of the student body.

    Pros

    The University of Redlands School of Business is an excellent community of instructors and students. The pay is excellent and the students are motivated and intelligent.

    Cons

    If you're new to adjunct teaching, be aware that you will spend a lot of time outside of class preparing for class and grading papers.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to spend more time working with faculty addressing the results of faculty evaluations.

    Pros

    Its a beautiful campus and the students are great. The professors are good to and are dedicated to the students, but don't like the employees. You get lots of time off and lots of sick time, so thats kinda nice. There are some really nice and smart people who work here, people who have been here a long time.

    The tuition benefit is good for employees and their kids and you get the benefit of being a student, which is a great experience.

    Cons

    The culture here is based on politic and who your friends with. Someone else said to watch your back because people who seem friendly are not. That is very true. There is a blame-game and take-the-credit game, so you better know how to play. The university talks about diversity and stuff, but they are not really interested in all that. They just say they are.

    The pay is below average and what you pay in health premiums will shock you.

    Advice to Management

    None, they don't listen anyway.
