    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Not really anything to look forward to to be honest

    Cons

    Enjoy being paid near minimum wage so that someone twice your age being paid upwards of 7-8x what you are can manage you who does the actual work.


  2. "Many student jobs - Not a good place to work if you don't fit the "mormon" mold."

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

    Pros

    -high availability of student employment positions

    Cons

    - Strict regulations (relating to BYU's LDS affiliation)
    - Must be clean-shaven (You can have a mustache for some reason)
    - Must attend LDS church regularly (if you do not attend, or convert to another religion you will be kicked out of school and fired from your employment)
    - A very conservative religious school, definitely not the place you want to work or attend school if you are not a conservative/very religious person.
    -Not the safest place for LGTBQ+ employees, as the LDS church and BYU have been known to have a bigoted stance towards people of this community.

    Advice to Management

    Make the university a safe place for women, and minorities. Don't require employees to follow seemingly pointless regulations such as the beard policy. Allow religious freedom to all students, including LDS students who desire to no longer attend church or convert to another religion.

    Pros

    Low key, not a lot of expectations, on campus

    Cons

    7.45 an hour?? Unbelievable. Otherwise it's an easy job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay raise to $9.00

    Pros

    Discount card. There was free food, but that has been cut back on.

    Cons

    Crappy management, very low pay, no room to advance, no personal interest in employees. I would strongly suggest finding any job besides this one.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, and help students get into more meaningful positions.


  5. "Not great."

    I have been working at Brigham Young University (BYU) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Reasonably good availability of resources.

    Cons

    Unsupportive environment. Conservative politics are emphasized at the expense of the establishment of an intellectual environment.

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

    Pros

    Small and close knit with pot lucks and parties. Friendly, you see everyone outside of work out surfing or at the local market.

    Cons

    Not professional, not seeking to grow or become competitive. Against change and too many managers making different decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on helping the students, while they are in school to learn English and when they are getting ready to graduate place them in jobs.

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

    Pros

    I was able to learn a great deal about design and typography in between jobs.

    Cons

    The office manager treated all employees like children both student employees and full-time employees. He did not allow open talking in the office even though it was a creative marketing agency. So, it was difficult to share and critique ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat performing employees professionally and allow for appropriate collaboration.
