    I worked at University of Redlands full-time

    Pros

    Human resources/administration offices were excellent and helpful during my time there.

    Cons

    There was a large influx of new donations (several million), but department director turned away all requests and recommendations from the department to fund his own interests. Many of the facilities and practices are several years out of date.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Employees that pass probation can obtain a degree for the cost of fees and books. This benefit is transferable to dependents as well.

    The campus grounds are beautiful and well maintained.

    Cons

    The focus for operations staff is to make sure the University president and his spouse are comfortable and happy first, while patching together buildings and infrastructure plagued by never-ending deferred maintenance.

    Limited staff development for non-academic employees.

    Advice to Management

    Board Members and President Kuncl need to inspect the struggling buildings and associated costs of deferred maintenance. Buildings are in dire need of security, fire and life safety, and HVAC upgrades (can you imagine 3 story residence halls without air conditioning in the IE?!) Perhaps the deferred maintenance is leading to ever shrinking enrollment....
