    I worked at LeTourneau University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great coworkers, many great students. The heart of many LETU employees is gold. Great work-life balance for the most part. I have many lifelong friends from my time here.

    Cons

    We HATED living in Longview, TX, which is an uncultured dump of a town. Higher education is challenging because at some point tuition and money become more important than people. LETU is very much in the midst of that struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box, and take the time to listen to ground-level employees. Making decisions in a vacuum without comprehensive input harms everyone. College education anywhere is decreasingly worth the high tuition that colleges like LETU charge; put some thought into making higher education a viable, sustainable service rather than maintaining the status quo of raising prices and expecting students to pay it.

    I worked at LeTourneau University (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was nice working in a Christian environment.

    Cons

    You don't get paid for the extra duties you perform.

    Advice to Management

    There are some in management who are out of touch with reality. They require more from their staff without adequate compensation.

    Pros

    Kevin Snyder was a great boss and gave clear instructions. If I ever needed him to clarify his instructions or expectations he would gladly elaborate.

    Cons

    There was some office drama, but I think that happens everywhere in a close environment and working with a few people many hours of the week.

    Pros

    The university marketing and communications department was a fun group of talented individuals to work along side. The students always made it interesting and fun. The S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance center staff were also very welcoming and great to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes it felt like the tail was wagging the dog. In my opinion there were differences in marketing strategies across the upper management and the department director leading to waisted time, money and manpower.

    Advice to Management

    You are incredibly fortunate to have an outstanding Marketing and Communication team. Let their creativity fly.

    Pros

    Good Caring people, Working with the Student population is interesting & rewarding

    Cons

    We were told no raises, but that was not true for everyone, Rules were applied inconsistently, No where to go if you had a problem with mgmt, Christian was a gimmick on staff side

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, Follow the handbook, Be a Christian with your Staff members not just students & people higher up. Staff should be allowed & encouraged to attend Chapel

    Cons

    it was bad that i have to use chemicals, and had to work with chemicals, which i don't like it, and there wasn't any safety for the work either.
