    I worked at La Sierra University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working on campus while attending college. Fair pay for work done. Early job experience gained. Easy to schedule hours around classes.

    Cons

    High competition for jobs. Some jobs are restricted by your major. Easy to lose job if performance isn't good enough.

    Advice to Management

    Having jobs be given out by class rank (seniors seeking jobs get first priority, juniors second, etc.) would be helpful as it was frustrating as an upperclassmen to lose out on jobs I wanted to freshmen.

    I have been working at La Sierra University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, peaceful atmosphere, ability to be open about your spirituality, love the students.

    Cons

    Stuck in the "olden days", poor on-boarding of new employees, inconsistent messages from management regarding support of campus programs.

    Advice to Management

    Take risks, own your mistakes, break down the silos, don't let the Business School rule the decisions on campus.

    I worked at La Sierra University part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice, clean, safe environment. The La Sierra University campus has many hard working, pleasant staff members with equally pleasant students.

    Cons

    Some of the staff and faculty in higher positions on the other hand are downright rude and unwilling to work with anyone to get anything done, particularly in the administration building.

    Advice to Management

    When every other department is constantly requesting changes to the financial department for years, and nothing is done, I'm not sure the management is willing to accept advise.

    Pros

    Fridays off during summer and that's it.

    Cons

    Poor reflection of effective leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Hire leaders that actually know how to communicate effectively, and know how to build team work.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, great benefits, nice people, committed staff, great opportunities to learn basic to intermediate skills. School Scheduling, easy to get time off for personal or sick days.

    Cons

    Low wages. Most staff make under 40-50k while top admin makes between 100-200k. No room for advancement or a desire to develop talent for top positions. If you want in to top positions, leave and then come back.

    Advice to Management

    Start developing internal talent like all the other companies do and quite ignoring your hidden talent. Create a bonus structure for good work.

    Pros

    Good work environment that is Christian yet open to all religious preferences. Flexible hours and relaxed company culture. Good benefits.

    Cons

    No vertical growth opportunities and most employees are not passionate about doing their best. Below average pay.

    Advice to Management

    To invest more in the company in order to provide better products and services to clients and to invest more in the employees.
