    Pros

    Top class environment well sustained. Quality of teaching is there but the most remarkable is the network you can build.

    Advice to Management

    Higher standards in term of attendance and grading. More regular summative work should be required. Events should be more relevant.

    Pros

    It's a paying job and your attitude and ability to compartmentalize will take you a long way. You will meet some really wonderful people, supervisors who truly care and coworkers you can trust...

    Cons

    ...But you will also meet people who will cut your throat and stab you in the back in the name of Christ. All about appearances. Toxic seniority culture. This is modeled by management, passed down from the very top.

    Advice to Management

    There's just too much to type... some serious house-cleaning needs to be done. There are many troubling, systemic issues here.

    I worked at Regent University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, along with a clean, safe, and beautiful work environment.

    Cons

    Major administrative issues. The human element has been forgotten at Regent University--management is eager to fire and replace rather than properly train, creating a revolving door of employees. Constructive criticism is construed as an attack on the university's mission, and often results in dismissal.

    As a result, morale is consistently low. University operates beneath a culture of fear. Noted discrimination against employees. Flyers passed out concerning how to "deal" with LGBQ students--all of which was negative, discriminatory, and un-Christlike.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the human element. Your employees already have a fantastic sense of purpose--now make sure they know they're valued. Don't treat them as disposable objects, but as people.

    Remember your core values. Your'e a Christian school, but your management is disrespecting employees, failing to take criticism, and is discriminating against those with disabilities and alternate lifestyles. No one ever came to Christ through discrimination and back-stabbing.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff that truly cares about your advancement and well-being, flexible schedules. Good opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    None that I can think of. The pay is not bad for a "student worker," but it depends on how many hours you can work.

    Advice to Management

    None... I think management does pretty well. At least in my department.

    Pros

    Near the beach! I liked my supervisor and President Campos.

    Cons

    I have mixed feelings. There were some really great people there and there were some really dreadful people there. But that is the world we live in...right.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to start...love more.

    Pros

    Great community. Very lax with taking time off. Tuition remission is a plus.

    Cons

    Some promotions don't make any sense. There is favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, and try to understand. Ask questions, and know the job you are managing. The more you know, the better decisions you can make.
