Not just a Christian institution in name only. They actually openly espouse Lutheran values. A lot of really great co-workers. In general, a laid back atmosphere.
The IT department is completely and utterly mismanaged. Nepotism abounds. As a result, I believe there is a general disdain among administration for IT employees. This is directly evident in the abysmal salaries. I defy anyone to find someone with equivalent responsibilities who makes less than the people in CUW's IT department anywhere in this country. It is absurd. And no amount of friendly co-workers can compensate for this lack of valuing of the employees. I am just disappointed I didn't get out sooner.

Coworkers are wonderful, and the students are even better.
Salaries are low, and you most likely will not get a raise. (Staff only, I am not sure about faculty)

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 GOODRetention of GOODRetention 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 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.

Great work environment, less political than many universities. Administration is generally approachable relative to other universities. The campus is very modern and located on Lake Michigan.
Located in Wisconsin, cold for 6 months of the year. Salary is low compared to industry and there is division on campus in terms of salary with the Pharmacy school1
