It's by the lake - other benefits are ok - Christmas break is nice.
Very low starting pay, not based off experience. - general minimal raises - not performance based at all. Currently only at $15.50phr.

Generally kind people. Good work-life balance. Good benefits.
The ways that the Lutheran-ness expresses itself are incredibly inconsistent. Very un-Christian drama and financial decisions. Says they worship Jesus, but in fact worships money.4

Pros: - Christian based atmosphere where sharing your faith is encouraged - 70% of the people I work closely with are great, dedicated people -Benefits are fantastic; something almost unheard of in today's business world - Some flexibility given for family needs/work from home -Tuition discount for employees -A wonderful university President who has his heart in the right place
Cons (which have increased greatly since I started at CUW): - Salary is pitiful. My position has over the years turned into the work of 3 people and I barely got compensated for the extra work. -Entering a time of firings, lay offs, and general upheaval and most people are not offered any kind of severance package to speak of. This is horrifying for a Christian institution. -"Good 'ol boys" club where people have been allowed to stay at Concordia FAR longer than they should have been allowed. -Appalling lack of diversity -Sports, sports, and more sports. First and foremost, a university should exist for ACADEMICS and not a race for more sports fields and to offer more sports than any other Div. 3 school. - While sports are gloried, Fine Arts have been shunned for years and not seen as worthy of the same respect in regard to buildings, resources, etc. One renowned traveling music group with a long tradition of history at Concordia meets in a BASEMENT room and has for decades. Shameful. - Parking. It's horrendous. - Barely ADA compliant, especially in the older parts of the building. - Secretive and a rumor mill -CUAA - pulled the university down as was predicted by so many -Retention of GOOD employees; it's a revolving door usually often because of salary and micromanagement6

It is in a beautiful location and for the most part, everyone is very welcoming, kind, and treat you like family. They have a beautiful mission and you are free to exercise your Christian faith there. Chapel is everyday during the school year which is a nice break during the day for a spiritual refill. The benefits are outstanding and there are quite a few perksbenefits are outstanding and there are quite a few perksbenefits are outstanding and there are quite a few perks associated with working at a university.
There is a disparity between administration and staff, as well as tension between non-exempt and exempt employees. It is exceedingly difficult to change how things are done and it is also difficult to speak plainly about work performance. The wage/salary is less because it is a private institution, but the benefits make up for it. The hardest thing is that the mission is so beautiful and you feel like you cannot live up to it because of opposition from people in upper management. There is also limited opportunities for advancement unless someone retires.

Concordia is a special place. People care here. Of course we care about the students, but coworkers also care for each other and the school community. It is a wonderful place to work.
Pay is below normal but benefits are way above standard so it equals out.

Concordia University Wisconsin has a beautiful, well maintained campus. Close to Milwaukee. A generous benefits package offered for full time employees.
The culture is very conservative. A stale 1950s mindset prevails. University departments are very cliquey and nepotism abounds. Management is often ill-equipped to offer meaningful and productive support to their employees. There is little accountability for upper management. The upper level management looks like a "good old boys" club. There is a huge lack of diversity - ethnic, cultural, and religious.1

Good Christian environment. Benefits are better than most companies.
Limited growth opportunities and communication with staff. Stuck doing the same tasks with no growth. Little appreciation for achievement.2
