    Pros

    Company cares about its students and employees, great tuition benefits, work with great people!

    I have been working at Wayland Baptist University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff treats one another as Family. It is very Christ focused and prayer is a common occurrence during the day. All of the faculty works together as a team.

    Cons

    The technology that is utilized is a bit outdated. There is also a lack of formalized training and there is a great need for consistency within the external and main campuses.

    Advice to Management

    Within the campus that I work for, management is spot on. I have no recommendations other that to keep doing what you are doing.

    I worked at Wayland Baptist University part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Had a high percentage of military and police students that were well disciplined and focused on the classes. I really enjoyed teaching at Wayland!

    Cons

    Quarter system required four-hour evening classes and about a 10 week class. A lot to digest in only 10 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Great learning opportunities, flexible hours, friendly workers and management (depending on what office you work for), and you get to know everyone since it's a small school.
