    I worked at WMU as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, great hours, great bosses

    Cons

    Poor public transport, owning and being able to drive a vehicle is very important for convenience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire based on competence not the need of the applicant or based on the nationality

    Pros

    People
    Ideas
    Comradery
    Friendship
    Great atmosphere

    My experience was truly life changing. Amy, Chris, Jen, Darin and the rest of the professional staff go above and beyond to identify projects that align the GA's with talents and add to their skill set. We had excellent bi-weekly staff meetings and became good friends over the course of the two year appointment. I highly recommend this institution for anyone interested in joining the WMU community.

    Cons

    None
    Teamwork
    Need more continuous training platforms for those who wish to be a part of multiple departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep including everyone in the discussion and help empower students to reach their full potential!

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL

    I worked at WMU

    Pros

    Good benefits; not as good as they used to be.

    Cons

    Recent furloughs have caused some angst; chances for advancement without religious education are not favorable. Layoffs mean additional work on current staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Today's publishing environment is so different from what it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. To really stay "in the game" this company needs to investigate ways to move forward in the online world.
