    I worked at Westminster College (Utah) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You do get to set your own schedule, since you are a student first and foremost and classes take precedence. If you have a test or major assignment due, there is usually the possibility of being able to arrive a few minutes late/leave a few minutes early in order to study or take care of academic matters. You also get to meet with many different kinds of students from across the world that visit the campus.

    Cons

    As a student, there are no possibilities for promotions or addition of responsibilities in any way - your job is very static. The pay is not good, but most students look that over since you don't have to drive anywhere to work. You are only limited to a maximum of 20 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to do some more things for student workers - contests, events, etc. Nothing major, but something that keeps it exciting.

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

    Pros

    The community of Westminster is supportive, friendly, and allows employees to have pride in their job. The time off, benefits, and retirement packages are great. Additionally, tuition assistance for the employees and their families is a great perk.

    Cons

    The pay can be low, probably because of the great benefits. Additionally, the culture tends to treat you like family - which has its drawbacks. Employees are often asked to take on more and more work without compensation or commiserate titles because it is the "duty to the college." Additionally, incompetent employees are seldom let go. Rather they are moved to other positions or departments rather than enforcing expectations that they should be able to perform in their position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward top talent and trim dead weight. Additionally, look at people in upper positions and evaluate if it is time for a change.

    I worked at Westminster College (Utah) part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The start center gave my number to a lot of students, and I was able to meet with them at my own convenience. Most of the students were very grateful, and would not take more than two hours of time. It was a great way to make a little extra money while doing school.

    Cons

    Finals week always drew in the most students who were stressing about students. Be prepared to be bombarded with people wanting help as you approach finals.

  8. The Business School is one of the most dysfunctional schools at the college.

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

    Pros

    Some of my colleagues are the most dedicated professors I have encountered. All of them are dedicated to support a student to achieve success in an undergraduate or graduate degree. The Business School at last has approved a Vision, Mission, and Values that embrace a student-centric direction.

    Cons

    Many of my colleagues are deadwood who are more interested in themselves, than in their students. We have yet to have a Dean in place who is an authentic leader. Our college just completed a 2 year strategic planning process. If the President had been a visible and influential leader, the process could have been completed in 1 semester. Administrative micro-management at the college is rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A new Provost would be a sea change for the better.

    Pros

    Great retirement bennefit and time off. Great people to work with for the most part

    Cons

    You will never move any where in this company. Componsation is based on Title. No incentive to work hard and put in the extra effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need to be trained. Reward those who put forth the extra effort to help the college, and not just the managers.
