      Being a Professor At LU

      Jun 26, 2021 - Assistant Professor in Lynchburg, VA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - It's a retirement gig, teach your classes, attend meetings, play a lot of golf - Students are awesome - Facilities and pay are excellent

      Cons

      - Administration - create a toxic culture, and colors every person affiliated with an image perception that makes it hard to leave - It's a top down org. No room for creativity or innovation. You just have to do what you are told - Extremely hard to leave once you get hired there as an employee. Almost like a Scarlet Letter type of effect - Little no camaraderie or collaboration. I've never worked at a place with so little community. People are very siloed and stick to their pre-prescribed groups. - All leadership positions below the provost/president's office are window dressing. No one has real influence and so you don't have any support from your chair/dean positions.

      Good but Temporary

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits for a designer starting out in the field, easy to step into and learn.

      Cons

      Proofing/approval process can be a hassle, higher ups have little to no design experience and have the final say. Pay leads more to a dead end with no positions for designers to step up in the corporate ladder

      LU does not respect employees

      Jul 15, 2021 - Business Data Analyst in Lynchburg, VA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      They will hire with little to no experience.

      Cons

      Don't expect to be treated well. They do not care about investing and growing their staff and faculty professionally. The LU employment model seems to be to hire new grads for cheap, use them up for a couple years, and then hire new cheap grads once anyone who is good at their position has the experience to work somewhere better.
