    Supportive environment with challenging demands

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for recent grads to get some real world work experience under their belts. Great benefits including time off and 401k matching up to 7.5%. Supportive community.

    Cons

    Minimal opportunity for promotions within your department. A lot of employees who are hired here stay here for decades. It seems like it could take 10-12 years for a substantial promotion. Small community where it seems like everyone is in your business.

    Great career launching pad

    25 Jan 2013 - Alumni Officer in Saint Louis, MO

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Most departments have few people, so you get to be a great general manager, a jack of all trades and a master of none so to speak. This experience stacks up and exceeds many corporate positions early on in one's career, as many of many counterparts had limited scope of responsibility, but a lot of it.

    Cons

    Outside of being a teacher or professor, there was a limited path to career advancement, and most people work on the staff because other family members do, or so they can be close to their children.

    Pros

    Great benefits, like-minded individuals working for a common cause - providing students with a quality education based on moral and spiritual values.

    I prefer not to say anything negative about this place. It is a fair place to work but the pay could be more competitive
