    I have been working at Westminster College (Utah) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a beautiful campus located in the heart of Sugarhouse. Flexible work hours. If you're lucky enough to work with students, you'll be impressed. The students here are amazing.

    Cons

    The workload is unreasonably heavy. Hard work goes unnoticed and unappreciated. Resources are sparse. There is no transparency about what departments get funding and/or resources and why. Departments have different goals and often work against each other.

    The senior leadership has created a fearful and toxic environment. Their lack of concern for student and staff wellbeing is alarming and dehumanizing. Decisions made by senior leadership do not reflect Westminster's mission and values.

    Furthermore, diversity is not respected by the senior leadership. The only steps taken to make the campus more inclusive are marketing schemes to attract more students and boost enrollment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the bottom dollar and start worrying about the student experience. Running a college campus like a corporation goes against the vision of higher education. If you insist this is the best method, remember students are your customers.

    Appreciate your employees. I'm not talking about having an annual party. I'm suggesting you take the time to understand why I'm a valuable employee.

    Stop de facto firing people. It's morally inept and bad for campus culture. Have the backbone to stand by your decisions. If an employee isn't doing a good job, let them go. Don't act like you're not firing them by restructuring a department and taking their benefits away. This passive-aggressive behavior creates an unhealthy level of distrust among the entire campus. The better path: Set clear expectations and guidelines. When those expectations aren't met, have a system in place to address shortcomings. (The new evaluation system was a step forward. However, there's no follow through. There isn't a process to ensure supervisors are meeting with employees about evaluations.)

    Remember you get what you give. Don't demand loyalty, commitment, and excellence if you're not willing to do your part.

    Great work atmosphere, very creative and friendly.

    Quick mobility, employees do not stay for more than 7 years average.

    Listen to counselors as they are the ones that deal mainly one-on-one with the students.

    Pros

    I really loved my time here. The people are wonderful, and the campus is absolutely gorgeous. I was fortunate enough to work with some brilliant people who mentored me, and I have nothing but good things to say about Westminster College as an employer.

    Pros

    Very easy to get away with things. It is very laid back.

    Cons

    No motivation to work hard. A lot of closed door meetings between male and female managers.

    Watch your employees, especially you management. A lot goes on behind closed doors that you should be aware off.
