    Pros

    The job pays for school. End list

    Cons

    Though Liberty is one of the highest paying employers in the area, most employees are underpaid for what they do. You'll quickly see that just about everyone has a "side hustle."

    The university is basically known for Jerry Jr.'s involvement with a politician that shall remain unnamed. If you are trying to get a job in a city, your education comes with a stigma.

    Advice to Management

    I've found that the leadership at LU is very unprofessional, with poor boundaries. I strongly suggest better management training. For the love of all that is good, please do something about how long HR takes to move.

    Pros

    People. There is no shortage of like minded individuals, who choose to be here for the sense of community and the desire to serve.

    Cons

    Over the years, there have been countless "initiatives" that have been forced into implementation without proper planning.
    Input, ideas, and/or concerns from the "worker-bees" are constantly ignored and dismissed.
    The continual lack of trust and respect for faithful employees is disgusting. It is blatantly clear that Liberty cares more about the value of the almighty dollar - and less about keeping valuable employees.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust your Brothers and Sisters in Christ. What happened to "If it is Christian, it should he better." ?

    I worked at Liberty University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Benefits and (limited) paid time off
    -Nice campus
    -Good coworkers
    -Pays the bills

    Cons

    This is the perfect place to work if you don’t mind being overworked and micromanaged. Management focuses solely on numbers, rather than implementing strategies that work, the best interest of the students, or employees’ wellbeing. The methods used to try to hit certain numbers were outdated and didn’t work, and then the employees were to blame. The job itself was extremely monotonous and stressful, and break time was very limited. There was also a lot of favoritism in the office, and the people who worked the hardest were not recognized. Reward systems changed frequently, taking away any type of motivation; management often relied on threats to get desired behavior from employees. Long hours with little to show for it other than a paycheck and increased stress.

    Advice to Management

    Please take a few basic HR/management courses and learn how to manage correctly.
