          Very flexible hours, work around your schedule.

          Cons

            Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

            I worked at High Point University full-time for less than a year

            Pros

            Beautiful campus. That's about it.

            Cons

            HPU has the same stock Diversity, Equity and Inclusion statement that many universities have. However, if you look at the numbers, they definitely do not match up to they values they claim to have. If you are a person of color and you can miraculously cross the first hurdle of just being hired, don't expect to be recognized further for your skills and growth potential.

            I worked at High Point University full-time for more than a year

            Pros

            Free promo gifts. Decent holiday bonuses.

            Cons

            Very often staff is encouraged to fall into the collective mindset of higher-ups, blocking out any suggestions for change or improvement as it pertains to involvement with the community. University doesn't seem to care about the city around it. When they do get involved, they're really only seeking the positive publicity rather than actually caring about they are assisting.

            I worked at High Point University full-time for less than a year

            Pros

            Beautiful Campus, Christmas bonus and swag

            Cons

            This has been the worst place I have ever worked. Management is awful, very self-centered and will throw anyone under the bus to make them look better. They do not care about training, growth, or actually making improvements to the system. I could say much more and this is not just a problem in my area but seems to be an issue in other departments as well.

            Advice to Management

            Managers need to be trained and learn that they are there to support their employees not the other way around. Being yelled at or blamed for errors when you've had zero training is unacceptable. You will not be able to retain good employees if management continues to run over their employees.
