  1. Best Liberal Arts College

    I have been working at Westminster College (Missouri)

    Pros

    diversity, develop leadership skills, get educated, and have fun

    Cons

    Nothing bad that I can remember

  2. Do more with less-no raises for years-no 401K match-lots of exec and board lip service-now the pres is leaving too

    I worked at Westminster College (Missouri)

    Pros

    If you are a professor and have tenure you might be in good shape

    Cons

    If you are only staff - look out - they'll use you up til you can't take it anymore -

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff keeps this place afloat - pay your staff employees better and treat them like you treat your professors - since the staff does most of the work and puts in a huge amount of hours to make the rest of you look good. Stop being penny rich and pound foolish.

    I worked at Westminster College (Missouri) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some great co-workers once you get to know one another but not many opportunities for team building, employee interaction, evaluations, etc.

    Cons

    Employees are losing jobs to replace with part time employees regardless of how long, and dedicated, an employee has been. Employees are told "what they want to hear" instead of the reality of the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not always take what is reported as factual without talking with the other side of each situation.

    I have been working at Westminster College (Missouri) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great school, good benefits, stable company - so many hard-working employees at all levels.

    Cons

    Administration and board is micro-managing; not good at allowing for balance in personal life. We are losing some long-time employees to certain administrators and their practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication isn't just one-sided. Some of your managers need training in communication, and guidance in how not to be condescending to those that work for them.

    Pros

    The people here are wonderful!

    Cons

    Most - not all - of our Board of Trustees member couldn't care less that WC salaries are in the bottom 15% of the nation for similar colleges. They should be embarrassed, but they instead seem amusingly proud of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're in the top 10% of student satisfaction. The professors are among the nation's elite. Unfortunately, the heads of admissions and development can't say the same. They seem almost incompetent.
