    I worked at Bellevue University full-time

    Pros

    The President of the University wants to make strides to improve academic excellence

    Cons

    Management choices to progress the University into the future of education are futile since most had no experience in the position they are in so they don't understand how to create change. They have no technical or assessment knowledge and drag down the processes changes needed for personal gain.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at where the large bottlenecks are occurring and don't be afraid to remove the people in those positions. The people under them are more talented than you realize.

    I worked at Bellevue University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The environment as a whole was fairly relaxed. You know what the day to day is going to be when you walk in the door.

    Cons

    They don't value their employees. They will pay the very minimum they can get away with, and when you let them know things are not as they should be they will reply with "Then leave there are 100 people waiting to take your job."

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing your employees and not focusing so much on the bottom line. This is supposed to be a non-profit the last time I checked.

    Pros

    For a non-profit, changes and innovations everywhere you turn--constantly moving ahead. If you enjoy a fast-paced, constantly changing, and innovative environment, this is the place for you. Decent benefits, excellent retirement plan, 100% tuition assistance for employees and family members, passionate co-workers, great facilities, and good annual performance bonus are a plus.

    Cons

    Sometimes the fast-pace and constant changes wears on you. If you want a constant and unchanging work environment, this place is NOT for you.

    Advice to Management

    Find and keep the people who excel in the fast-paced environment. Work on developing those who cannot. Don't change the performance bonus and continue to enhance the benefits plan.
