      I have been working at Liberty University full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The benefits are great. Free tuition, great healthcare, and gym membership.

      Cons

      We are micromanaged. They monitor everything you do. They also pay us terribly low for our jobs.

      Advice to Management

      Pay us more. Be more concerned about the individual rather then the numbers.

    • Really No Different from a Secular Company; Maybe Worse

      I have been working at Liberty University full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Okay for values; benefits (perks for gym usage, athletic tickets) okay if you have time to use them.

      Cons

      Poor pay, costs money to park for your job, employees are not encouraged to pursue passions--you may not transfer positions if it's lateral or pays less. Lots of red tape, office politics, bureaucracy. Sometimes takes 10-15 minutes just to get off campus at the end of the day.

      Advice to Management

      Look for reasons to say yes, really value your employees. Sad to see many secular companies treating employees better. HR program 'You Matter' is laughable; often mocked by employees. Morale is low but not as low as employee pay.

    • Good place to work. Challenging, but fulfilling

        I have been working at Liberty University part-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Got to have a lot of time to work on my own homework

        Cons

        Professors are mostly homophobic and do not listen to anyone who doesn't believe the same thing as them

      • Great people, but don't work here

          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I worked at Liberty University full-time

          Pros

          I started out part-time and transitioned into full-time. I loved the people I worked with and made great relationships.

          Cons

          HR is definitely not the best. I was trying to get a different job at the university in the computer science field which I graduated in, but HR declined my career advancement form because I had not been working full-time at my current position for at least a year. I was not aware of that policy so I emailed HR regarding that to see if there was any way they could overlook it. HR never responded despite following up twice....
