I have been working at Valparaiso University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wonderful work environment, great on campus benefits like free admission to sporting events, fitness center, cafeteria. The campus is very beautiful and is in a nice area.

Cons

The range of backgrounds makes working with certain partners very difficult. Managers set deadlines that are not possible and sometimes refuse to back up their employees.

    Pros

    We have excellent 401k options, tuition reimbursement, vacation. Most people on campus are genuinely nice people. The students are a wonderful bunch - intelligent and respectful. I also feel safe here.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. Administration is very political. Not a lot of room for advancement in any department on campus you might work in.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the people who are working hard instead of your friends. Listen to your employees when they are asking for help. Pay your people better before all of the good ones leave.

    Pros

    The overall atmosphere at VU is fantastic, and I enjoy working with all of the other employees. It is nice to work in a small university atmosphere.

    Cons

    For those of you that prefer a large university, Valpo is not the place for you. Also, I personally feel that the pay could be better than what I currently receive.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your employees better that what you currently do, and I feel that some of the well-educated professors are underpaid, too.
