      Do not work here.

      Pros

      You can walk the entire school in 5 minutes. The mission orientation was my favorite part about training. Students and staff get free unlimited counseling (careful though, because the staff is so small, your secrets may get shared). School plays were cute.

      Cons

      No one has it together. For example, IT doesn't know how to replace ink in printers and doesn't have the money to buy ink. The employee computers are very old and do not hold a charge without the charger connected at all times. People constantly talk about how the school has no money. Many use it as an excuse to not try. Because so many systems are primitive or unorganized, things are significantly harder to do. Instead of trying to fix the systems both for students and to make staff's job easier, they do nothing. The student athletes get away with murder here. Bad training overall. No potential to move up here, or even get a pay raise. Benefits were okay.

      Pros

      Close-knit community. Constant help available for co-workers and students.

      Cons

      Mixed signals from management sometimes. Financial problems with university affect all. Student base is a mixture of very interested and very disinterested students.
