    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time

    Pros

    BYU is a fantastic school overall.

    Cons

    Ironically, the university has perhaps the worst culture for professional moms. It’s very surprising considering they’re owned by the LDS church, who focuses on families. Yet at BYU, there’s really no maternity leave, really no benefits of any kind. It makes for an extremely difficult working environment if you’re a woman with kids.

    Advice to Management

    You’re losing out on great talent because if your 1960s mentality. Maybe get up to date a bit.

    Pros

    The administration takes great care of its employers. The benefits are good and the environment is very supportive. The administration continues ongoing education programs for faculty.

    Cons

    Many university departments do not value a true spirit of academic freedom and intellectual curiosity. I often saw attacks on this from the Left and the Right. The environment is mostly one of intellectual cravenness.

    Advice to Management

    Seek intellectual diversity in departments while advancing BYU's core LDS-driven mission.

    Pros

    Good environment. Loved my co-workers and student employees. Great health and tuition benefits.

    Cons

    Will not fire people unless something heinous occurs so there's a lot of issues with lame duck employees. Penny-pinched to a ridiculous extent in some areas and then threw money like it was nothing into areas where there was no need and devalued and demotivated my entire team.

    Advice to Management

    In my experience upper management was incredibly unaware, slow to change, and made decisions without any discussion with those below them who had a more immediate understanding of their needs. Give more authority and responsibility to those below you who show promise and it'd be great.
