    I worked at Liberty University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Liberty University has great health and education benefits. The staff and students are friendly and fun to be around. Overall this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    Sadly, the nepotism keeps good workers from advancing and chases away talent. The pay is usually below market value because of the benefits. You have to pay for parking and you're lucky to get the zone you want.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage. How good workers and trust them to do their jobs well.
