    I have been working at Master's College and Seminary full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not all positions are the same, but mine is flexible and allows me the time to deal with family needs when they come up. I love the culture here and the environment of unity and excellence.

    Cons

    The salaries don't move and there isn't really any opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    If you stand for excellence, make sure you are actually working to do all things excellently. Sometimes for the sake of money or other projects, things get cut which limits our ability to attain excellence.

    I have been working at Master's College and Seminary part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome work environment. Boss is very easy to work with and allows the job to be flexible. Fun job - get paid to watch sports. Coworkers are kind and willing to cover shifts.

    Cons

    Hours fluctuate drastically throughout the year, often going weeks at a time with no work. At times there are long shifts with no time to take a break for meals.

    Advice to Management

    Organization can be lacking at times, and training is a bit weak. Allow more time specifically set aside for training and less on-the-job, group training.

    I worked at Master's College and Seminary as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Worked really hard to accommodate school activities. Was given extra time off if I needed to study for a major test or project that was due.

    Cons

    I really enjoyed my time working at The Master's College. I can't really think of anything about my job that I would have liked to change.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work . I really felt valued and appreciated and like I was a part of the team even though I was just an intern.

    Don't be so off putting when intern asks questions, FYI you never trained them

    I have been working at Master's College and Seminary full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is freedom to operate with quite a lot of autonomy in one's own sphere. Staff, faculty and students are generally very nice people, but there is a definitely a sense of there being an "in-crowd." The campus is beautiful and small.

    Cons

    Pay is significantly less than industry average. I have been told that our work is considered "ministry" and because we are serving God they don't need to pay us as much as our industry counterparts. In over six years as a manager with a master's degree in my field (and with an additional department being put under my control after 1.5 years of being employed), I have only gotten a total of $3.65 in raises.

    Advice to Management

    please show your employees that you value them and pay them what they deserve, or at least closer to it!

    Pros

    I think it must be religious fulfillment, because it certainly isn't money. They allow you to do whatever you want in the classroom, with very little guidance, but if you say anything that could be construed as being anti-religious, they don't like that at all.

    Cons

    Professors are wonderful, but the administration has serious issues. All the professors are absolutely wonderful, but the adminstration is very short sighted and act like they're ex-military, rather than more professional administrators. The trouble is that there is little money involved in any of this and the possibility for reward is very little, so it doesn't make much sense.

    Advice to Management

    No Witch Hunts.

    Pros

    Supportive Christian environment with shared values. All faculty and staff are committed to serving students fully. Salaries are low, but benefits compare more than favorably with other institutions.

    Cons

    All salaries are somewhat low, but they are working to improve them.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate regularly and openly with staff.

    I worked at Master's College and Seminary full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of working with some of the most amazing people in the world. By far the best bosses anyone could ask for!! Also is a plus that you get to work around some wonderful students too.

    Cons

    Easily the only con about working here is the pay. Although depending on the department you work for makes a big difference.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate which departments get the biggest budget for administrative help.
