    I worked at Regis University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty casual Fridays. Bosses were kind, outgoing and cared about employees.

    Cons

    The school continually seemed to be going away from being a legitimate liberal-arts college, toward a degree-mill, here-for-the money type place.

    I really felt like there was no room for advancement at all.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are literally a Jesuit school. Get back to your freaking values, stop trying to just get anyone in with a pulse, and make it competitive to get in, and make sure students work hard to get the degrees they get.

    I have been working at Regis University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - nice staff and faculty members
    - some great students

    Cons

    - Poor admission process (if you can afford it, you are admitted to the grad and undergrad programs)
    - Limited benefits
    - the heavy lifting is given to part-time faculty members with little training or support
    - limited professional experience
    - little to no support from the management

    Advice to Management

    - have more standards for admissions
    - create incentives for affiliate faculty to stay and appreciate them
    - improve benefits for all employees
    - you talk a great deal about values and standards but seem to forget all this talk when dealing with your employees, faculty and students
    - you clearly cannot be everything to everyone so maybe it is time to cut back and focus on your strong areas

    Pros

    Good people who all work for the Jesuit mission. 3 weeks vacation. Christmas week off. Education at no cost.

    Cons

    Higher ed does not run like a business so the organization is not as strategic to goals. No bonuses or career growth.

    Too many Chiefs not enough Indians.

    I worked at Regis University full-time

    Pros

    -the work was varied and some co-workers were nice people
    -the university shuts down for almost 2 weeks during christmas
    -401k matching is better than most public companies
    -no one works late because your salary is awful

    Cons

    -The university doesn't pay at market value and raises/bonus are out of the question
    -Vice presidents (VP), assistant vice presidents (AVP) don't know how to manage people and these top managers can never work together unless both sides get something out of it
    -This university is run by white males who don't like to hire female managers. Top management has been there for endless years so they make great money and don't plan on leaving so nothing will change unless new blood comes into those upper management positions
    -the university has big goals to compete with local and regional universities but they move at a glacial pace
    -since the university doesn't pay at market value, most employees work at Regis to get their masters degree then leave to find another job (it is sad when people are only there to "use" the university and hate working at Regis)
    -don't bother going to HR, its a joke. HR has the most turnover compared to other departments and they never do anything to help when management issues occur.

    Advice to Management

    Hire females who have worked in the business work (not another university) so real progress can take place.
    Don't promote from within to save money when the person isn't qualified
    Find a way to pay at market value.

    Pros

    Master's Program: Employees can pursue a Master's Degree at little to no cost. Beautiful campus, Medical, Dental and Vision.

    Cons

    Often times there are layoffs due to low enrollments. There are no performance reviews and no merit-based raises.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more incentives to perform and exceed expectations. More employee appreciation needed. There currently is no measure of excellence.

    I worked at Regis University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The tuition is free which is a big plus, and it is a beautiful campus which is very nice. But...

    Cons

    If you love working in a highly cliqueish environment where the in crowd routinely sandbags those they don't like then this is the place for you! And I mean don't like, just like in middle school, doesn't have anything to do with job performance. If you want to know who the in crowd is just check who has worked there the longest. Vindictiveness for the sake of something to feel powerful about is the rule.

    Someone elses review compared it to Survivor, which made me chuckle because that is an accurate description! People are routinely voted off the island and I have a sneaking suspicion the reason is because they are in fact GOOD AT THEIR JOBS. Which means they are a threat to the old guard who are incompetent at best. Look at the student reviews, not the five star ones because those are fake.

    Advice to Management

    Make a clean sweep of all the old guard and start fresh.
