    I worked at Brigham Young University (BYU) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    LOVED the people I worked with!!

    Cons

    Training was continuously changing. Managers were not very communicative with analysts.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your analysts more and avoid favoritism.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will have a chance to choose what project you want to do. When you start, someone (graduate student) will help you to start knowing what you are doing. He/she will teach you how to do it until you can do it on your own.

    Cons

    Sometimes boring. But, if you enjoy your research and all the events that they have, you will be okay.

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The environment is fantastic, it is great to work with missionaries, and the benefits package is unbeatable. Plus, if you are LDS, instant job satisfaction.

    Cons

    Not very much communication between Ecclesiastical and Temporal departments. Sometimes they are slow to upgrade or buy new equipment.

    Advice to Management

    I would say, let employees see the long-term benefits of staying. A lot of turnover because young students are hired full-time, and go off to graduate school, etc. Help them see the possibilities of working in better-compensated positions in the future.

    Great projects; great community; fantastic benefits; opportunities to work closely with students; great atmosphere and high values. I would highly recommend BYU as a great place to work and to have a career.

    Cons

    Some difficulty in communicating with management.

    Advice to Management

    Find out more about what is going on in the trenches. Some poor decisions have been made because management didn't find out what was going on at the customer impact level.
