Pros

A lot of support given to faculty. If you need it, you will get it. Technology department is great!

Cons

It would be nice to have a place to download free software to stay "up to date" instead of having to pay for it yourself

Advice to Management

Give adjunct faculty computers or at least free software

    I worked at Buena Vista University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The co-workers and environment at BVU make it feel like a home, full of family and friends.
    The benefits are great.
    Opportunity for promotion.

    Cons

    This is a smaller institution in northwest Iowa. Those moving to the area may struggle to find activities within the community if they are more familiar with the hustle and bustle of a city.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, thinking about the students first.
