    Pros

    It is a very good work environment. While this varies by department, I have excellent coworkers who are very easy to work with. Management is very good about expressing appreciation for work well done. In particular area, I have a lot of freedom to take initiative in projects that I think are worthwhile. Given justification/business cases, management is good about getting on board. While my job is not specifically education related, if you believe in the school's mission overall it can be more satisfying to work at BJU than elsewhere. Benefits as well as vacation time are good to above average.

    Cons

    There are some rather rigid requirements that infringe on personal freedoms (dress, movies, etc.). However, some of the dress standards did loosen up (although the main point is that there are still requirements imposed when not on the clock).

    Name recognition can be the double-edged sword of working at BJU -- most people know of the school and many have definite opinions about (see John McCain for instance).

    Some departments/supervisors are stuck back in 70's authoritarian management styles -- fortunately this isn't the majority in my experience.

    You do also have to be careful not to get cynical while working in a Christian environment -- people are still people and while there's no smoking/cursing/yelling, there are still imperfections.

    Advice to Management

    Need to loosen up on what requirements are placed on employees when not on the job.
