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

    Pros

    *Caring co-workers
    *Plenty of opportunities to engage (with different ministries, opportunities, with students, etc)
    *Great campus (good for walking, can use the gym and go to fitness classes)
    *Good food options - the cafeteria is actually pretty delicious most days and there are lots of other fast food options
    *Always something going on. Faculty and staff are encouraged to attend chapel aka The Gathering and they have neat guest speakers from time to time. The events on campus range widely from political prayer breakfasts to the Gospel Music Awards and lots in between. I experienced a lot of great things while I was there, including some awesome theater performances
    *Generous in giving time off (you get a day off for your birthday and a whole week at Christmas!)
    Just a great environment for work. There are lots of great things happening there and between the mission trips and relationships being formed on campus etc lives are truly changed.
    *Good health insurance/benefits options
    *Tuition breaks/reimbursement. I didn't use it, but I know it's made a big difference in some for some of my prior coworkers

    Cons

    I know some positions don't pay quite as much as you might expect to get in the for profit sector. Generally speaking Lipscomb makes up for it by being flexible and giving you perks elsewhere, but sometimes that is hard. The cost of living raises I was given were very small.
    Parking can be a pill, but they do offer some alternatives and if you arrive at certain times, it's not so bad.

    Advice to Management

    In general, make sure employees know how they can advance in the company. It sometimes seems like there's not much room to grow.

    Offer at least a few weeks of paid maternity leave.

    Overall, awesome job and it's an incredible place to work!

    Ask for a bigger budget to hire a more perminant team . Treat your full timers like people. Not work horses. easy to get burnt out.

    I worked at Lipscomb University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with faculty and staff in the psych department. Wonderful professionals, good at their craft. Not an overly competitive environment, but still aspirational and productive.

    Cons

    Facilities can be dated if you're not in one of the more lucrative academic departments on campus. Parking is difficult at times.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great team work, improves your communication skills and customer service skills.

    Cons

    because they have a lot of student workers and all the jobs on campus need to have the close to the same salary, student workers are not paid much above minimum wage.

    Great learning experience.
    Flexible hours.
    Fun environment.
    Wonderful Director.

    Pros

    Spiritual environment and really caring co-workers. They really ensure you have balance and they're really flexible when life stuff happens. I've been there for a while now and they've given many annual raises, x-mas gifts and other perks.

    Cons

    I am a minority and I can't help but notice it's not very diverse...more so at the private grade school portion. Most all the faculty at that smaller schools are Caucasian. Some people looking from the outside could be offended. I admittedly am too.

    Advice to Management

    There is value in diversity. You should explore it.

    The faculty is so dedicated to the students success and well-being!

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing, growing and thinking outside the COC box!
