Pros

The classroom opportunities and the support of other faculty are the best reasons for teaching at Southwestern and living in Fort Worth.

Cons

There is no clear statement for advancement, employee's job proformance is seldom more than satisfactory (despite objective evidence to the contrary), and the very poor communication from administration.

Advice to Management

Since faculty were considered worthy of hire, can the muzzles be removed and people be rewarded in a manner worthy of God?

    Pros

    There is not nearly as much pressure to perform as there is in the real world. This creates an easy-going atmosphere.

    Cons

    This easy-going atmosphere masks serious issues. With no review process and thus no incentives for high performance, salary is divorced from performance. If you're a high-performer, you'll learn quickly to slow down or get frustrated and leave. If you're a slacker, you won't be reprimanded and will love the easy-going atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    Don't neglect human nature in your management style. Yes, all of us are called to our positions and wouldn't leave unless we feel that God is leading in that direction, but you would get so much more out of each individual if you rewarded performance in meaningful, tangible ways (ie, salary). The lack of a formal review process is appalling.
