    I have been working at Anderson University (IN) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The students are great and it is a joy to work with them. They are courteous and respectful for the most part.

    Cons

    The university is in decline. Enrollment is down and the administration has no reasonable plan to turn things around. They do not honor their obligations to their employees and take the employees for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Even though the president is new, he has demonstrated that he has no idea how to run a university. He should be fired.

    I worked at Anderson University (IN) (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Students are incredible to work with, driven and empathetic. The campus is a nice environment though it is surrounded by urban blight. I had a few good faculty colleagues, though most faculty have little time for one another.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. Faculty has been beat down by administrators. The faculty is fractured and unable to resist the will of administrators. The school continues to eliminate programs that make it a liberal arts institution careening it ever more towards a vocational-technical school. All that will be left after their cuts will be STEM programs. There is no longer support for the arts in any form. The university has lost a grasp of who it is as an institution and instead of standing for its ideals it is grasping, no gasping, at whatever quick fix looks like it will work next. Namely, more

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the culture of Robert Reardon and Patrick Allen to return the school to its former glory.

    I worked at Anderson University (IN) part-time

    Pros

    The people are nice. Very flexible with work schedule when you need it. They are pretty lenient on many things.

    Cons

    Not much structure in how things are done. They don't teach students about the process of diagnosing/assessing computer issues.

    Advice to Management

    Create some sort of process for getting things done... When there is a process in place make sure that ALL of the workers follow through with that process. I've noticed some people will skip jobs if they are not interested in it. Or if they don't know how to fix this issue, let them know that they can get help or work along side of the students to show what to do and how to address the issue.

    I have been working at Anderson University (IN) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Christian university, strong morals, ethics shared by most

    Cons

    Declining enrollment (like most private liberal arts universities nationwide), in a period of transition (Which could be positive!), low pay across the board

    Both the short term and long term goals are key to success.
