    I worked at Creighton University full-time

    Pros

    It attracts mission-driven students and staff. Great and engaged faculty and is well-known and respected in the region.

    Cons

    From my experience, male employees were given more opportunities to advance, their opinions were valued more, and they were given ample opportunities to make mistakes without any or little consequences. There are very few faculty and staff of color. childless employees are often the ones expected to work longer hours and their time is less valued. The institution is not ready to support the next generation of college students. The talented employees end up leaving or becoming burnt out due to the lack of a work life balance. Receiving emails after hours or on the weekend was not seen as unhealthy but was encouraged through praise and promotions as those employees were seen as the most dedicated.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage a better work life balance for staff and faculty, increase faculty and staff of color, better understand the implicit bias that is across campus and better meet the needs of students.

    I have been working at Creighton University full-time

    Pros

    PTO, free food, working with peers who wouldn't work with you.

    Cons

    Where to start? If you want to proceed in your career, forget that. They will create a roadblock in your every step. Nothing comes easy, you have to earn them. But just because you pay tour employyes don't mean you owe them They not your slaves. Pay is way way below market standard, so bad that even you feel ashamed to tell anyone what you even make. You hear budjet is tight every year, but that dosen't stop the top tier to buy new houses every year . Technology is boring, employees don't even get training on new technologies. It's a roadblock for you to stop leaving . Good try. As a technical person, you will probably feel lost in the open world. Stay away. Your only way of survivavl here is not by how much hard work you do , but by whom you know up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better. Just because they work don't mean they are slaves. Learn how to talk first.
