    "Disatisified"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Arlington, TX

    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paid sick time and paid vacation time after working 6 months. Holidays and breaks throughout the year are beneficial.

    Cons

    No professional growth or development within each department. To move up in positions, you have to be someone favorite. People have become comfortable within their positions and does not want to grow or hear new ideas. Medical and dental benefit could be better.

    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University full-time

    Pros

    Everyone has the chance to leave a legacy, smaller size allows students diverse educational opportunities inside and outside of the classroom, lower stress environment for students and employees, high number of kind and authentic employees, majority of professors are caring and put all their focus on student learning and achievement

    Cons

    Like most small, private universities, keeping tuition affordable means that many good ideas are not funded and some things take longer to do, this is frustrating for less patient employees and students

    Advice to Management

    Adopt an educator's mindset and promote an environment where managers are resources to employees and student, empower employees and students to stretch themselves, and occasionally fail, promote and reward professional growth, develop and implement succession plans and design and implement policies and practices that facilitate the evolution and maturization of the university

    I have been working at Texas Wesleyan University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are probably about average overall but pto is really great. Not many places match it. It makes slightly lower salaries worth it. The new president works hard to raise the profile of the school.

    Cons

    Like any place it matters what department you work for. Some offices/bosses are more pleasant then others.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for professional growth. Support the people under you in their work.

    I worked at Texas Wesleyan University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Convenient if you lived in Fort Worth, TX

    Cons

    Compare the NICHE.com crime rate where Dallas Baptist has the best rating and Texas Wesleyan is #36. With tuition being within a few hundred dollars of each other, all a parent needs to do is drive by and look at both campuses. Texas Wesleyan is in a impoverished area of Fort Worth and Dallas Baptist is in a flourishing area south of Dallas. Also, go to the Department of Education and look at campus crime data and again, there is no comparison. Besides being in an impoverished area of Ft. Worth, Texas Wesleyan does not have a campus police department, but wants to add a football team. Also, Dallas Baptist is faith-based and Texas Wesleyan is not. A parent needs to have input into their child's choice, and comparing the physical locations, the crime statistics and views of the administration, there isn't any comparison for parents and students.

    Advice to Management

    The board of trustees needs to clear house on the administration. Some have been there too long and haven't kept up, some are incompetent and others are there for self-serving reasons.

    Pros

    Nice, calm environment. Friendly staff, willing to help at any moment.

    Cons

    Sometimes a bit too laid back, it is very easy to be lazy there.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce a stronger rule-set. Also put a bell on the door. It'd help to keep employees on edge
