An atmosphere of team work and employee collaboration.
Pay was not competitive and no benefits.

> Mints in the waiting room.
> Bunch of white folks (maybe like me) sympathizing with minorities and hell-bent on social equity issues they will never understand. > No minority leadership for minority issues. (hypocritical and ironic) >Worst pay ever. I have two advanced degrees and my pay ended up to be around minimum wage. > No one can ever say anything bad about the College Of Education website because the director created it (it's terrible unless you are familiar with all the programs). > They just nixed the LGBTQ student union/club. How's that for social equity? Religion ruins everything. > Google 'Hot Chalk and Concordia'. They ran a 'partnership' together that's now under federal investigation. They're trying to be the University of Phoenix for teacher education. Hot Chalk is a shady marketing company. > Education Fire Sale: There are few teaching jobs in Oregon and new students don't realize this after the sales spiel. > PSU just got a $100M cash injection from the state and donors to beef up the medical end education departments. Edu programs from other universities are toast so forget this school. The best EdTech, curriculum, and professors will not be here if the money is well spent.6

The people are kind and the benefits are good.
The pay is horribly low and there is no room for growth. CU is one of the most poorly run universities I've ever worked for. Internal communication is abysmal and management does not welcome (or listen to) any worker input. Every single person at all levels is overworked. They spend money on the most outlandish, dumb branded items but still claim they cannot afford to pay their workers more.1

My department was very supportive and collaborative. Concordia is a family, not just a a college.
Pay is below industry standards..
