I have been working at Pepperdine University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Small classes with top notches students. Very supportive staff and administration. Nice campuses, especially in Malibu, which is beautiful. Self-directed course development and an entrepreneurial spirit for an university. Awesome benefits and colleagues. Plenty of opportunity for ongoing self development.

Cons

Be prepared to drive extensively to classes at different campuses. Not a lot of extra professor support, so be willing to do stuff yourself.

Advice to Management

Need to connect faculty across disciplines more so students have a more comprehensive view of business throughout the program.

    I have been working at Pepperdine University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, overall good people to work with, locations is nice, all the exciting things that come with a college like the athletics or other events. Also, the ability to do projects that work with all aspects of the community.

    Cons

    Management seems to be narrow and not like conflict. Also, they look out for their friends more then the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be managers and not from books.

    I worked at Pepperdine University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus
    Great people
    High caliber employees who are both professional and personable
    Competitive salaries
    Upper-level management is authentic, enthusiastic about their work, and set a great example
    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Commute can be tricky-- it's not easy to get to the campus if there are any road closures.
    Salary is probably a bit lower than it would be in the corporate sector, but I still felt well-compensated, and the benefits were great.

    Continue to invest in your alumni; they are a huge asset!
