    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Lewis & Clark College full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Beautiful campus, lovely colleagues overall (faculty and staff), hardworking and devoted students

    Cons

    Employees are not well paid, resulting in dissatisfaction, burnout, and a high rate of turnover in many positions. The Dean declines to negotiate fair salaries with faculty claiming "internal equity concerns", meanwhile faculty (tenured/tenure-track/adjunct) are aware of widespread inequity that is not being addressed and there is no transparent salary scale except among unionized staff. This inequity is illegal in the state of Oregon according to the Oregon Equal Pay Act. Both the Dean's office and HR seem unable to update employee addresses, which for me resulted in failure to receive important documents like contract offers and tax documents. I know that former presidents have made bad investments and the school is in quite a precarious financial position, but undervaluing and losing employees absolutely will not help the school.
