    I worked at Nebraska Wesleyan University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good environment, they seem to care about the students and wellbeing of the faculty as long as they are not discussing about money.

    Cons

    Relatively low salaries compared with other universities/industry but I think they try to do the bes with what they have.

    I worked at Nebraska Wesleyan University (More than a year)

    Pros

    They sell themselves as high quality education and that is exactly what they are. Great place to work with friendly people.

    Cons

    Not highly paid. Advancement is a tough prospect with it being a smaller university with long term employees. But they are great for a resume.

    Advice to Management

    Increase volume. You need to really hit hard with marketing and get more students. Adult education was a very creative expansion, but full time students are going to make it possible for even more expansion.

    I worked at Nebraska Wesleyan University (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very easy to work with the professors and flexible hours allowed to get school work done but still adding valuable experience.

    Cons

    On the research side, I had to sometimes go in on weekends or during summer break hours in order to complete my work.

    I worked at Nebraska Wesleyan University part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    NWU prides itself on making a community of its workers and students and I felt a sense of belonging there that I have rarely felt working professionally. The staff is professional yet warm and inviting and the overall sense is that you want to contribute more and be a part of the excitement on campus.

    Cons

    The university is still quite small compared with other organizations in the area (e.g. SCC and UNL) which may contribute to lower pay, however the work life balance makes up for this

    Advice to Management

    Bear in mind some administrative staff would like opportunities to advance, and as yet some of these positions provide little growth availability

    I have been working at Nebraska Wesleyan University full-time

    Pros

    People here care about each other
    Benefits are really good and that's why many people stick around
    Everyone believes in the university mission and strives to help students succeed

    Cons

    Silo working environment - departments very often don't know what's going on with each other yet are expected to produce quality results
    Projects are not given priorities at the senior level so it leads to infighting between departments on what gets done when
    Promotions are almost impossible
    Salaries are low

    Advice to Management

    Stop being afraid to make decisions and stick to them.
