        Negative Outlook

        I worked at Roberts Wesleyan College for more than a year

        Pros

        Overall, people across campus were nice.

        Cons

        People are promoted from within for jobs they are not qualified for instead of searching for qualified people in order to pay a lower salary. For a Christian college, people are gossipy and disrespectful behind each other's backs. Faculty are micromanaged by staff/admin assistants. Lack of training for managers. Managers treat subordinates poorly and unprofessionally. HR is not at all helpful and would rather sweep things...

        Advice to Management

        Search for and hire candidates who are qualified for positions that need to be filled and pay them what they are worth. Improve the benefits package. Train managers on HOW to manage their teams professionally and respectfully.

        Positive Outlook

        I have been working at Roberts Wesleyan College part-time

        Pros

        Roberts has a great environment. My supervisors are great. They work to see my career advance and really care about both the community and the students. Tuition benefits are a real plus.

        Cons

        Roberts is a lean organization right now. Higher Education is in a difficult place across the nation, and Roberts is feeling the pinch.

        Advice to Management

        Utilize more project management techniques for greater efficiency and effectiveness in new projects and programs. I'm concerned that adjunctification will hurt the college in the long term, so don't follow the masses there. HR could be more effective, including training new managers/supervisors better.
