Great environment but very poor pay and career advancement
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – June 20, 2017
Great environment to work but the pay is very poor and it's very hard to get any raise or career advancement. I recommend this company for entry level positions. If you can go somewhere else to work with your previous experience, I'd just apply somewhere else.
Immunology Lab Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – June 11, 2017
An encouraging environment with awesome students and great professors. A good way to make some money while in college. You get extra lab and administrative experience while learning leadership skills among your peers.
Very kind people that will go out of their way to help you

Great place to attend school.If you are employees by Liberty University, you will need to complete all tasks exactly as assigned. Do not worry about trying to improve the process. it is the way it is for a reason , even if that is not apparent. be on time and complete all assignments to their standards and be positive in your work and support of Liberty University and you will be sure to advance given time.
Academic Advisor (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – June 1, 2017
When I started at this company, I knew the pay was not competitive or even close to average for what mostly all universities pay their employees respectively. However, I loved my job and helping the students. When new management came in, they made it clear that they did not care about the employees and simply wanted to 'clear house'. After several firing sprees based on nothing but lies, it was evident that the department I was in was only interested in numbers and not students or employees. Great school, awful employer!
Apprentice (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – May 29, 2017
Liberty University is a great university, but a poor employer. The largest benefit is the free education assistance they provide, but if you are not using this benefit, the work is not worth it. Compensation is poor, management is unorganized, and no room for professional development or advancement.
Enjoyable workplace and friendly employees. The pay is the downfall.
Course Editor (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – May 22, 2017
This is a great work environment with wonderful coworkers. The biggest downfall is that the pay does not match the job requirements. Pay is very low compared to comparable positions in other companies or institutions.
Friendly faces, YouMatter events, great bosses
Low pay for a position requiring a degree. Few advancement opportunities are available.
Instructional Technologist (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – May 22, 2017
As a student, the University is amazing. It cares about you and your life. As staff, it is evident that the University cares nothing about you or your life.
Morale is terrible and they don't even care. Changing things without any notice, laying people off, taking away benefits, changing job descriptions, giving more responsibility without more pay, no raises, no yearly reviews. The only thing I can say for this job is that it's a job. Hoping they realize their mistakes before everyone revolts and they're left with nothing.

Liberty University provides an amazing work culture where you are involved with your co workers more than ever before. The facilities are top of the line and there isn't much missing. I would say that the institution provides an environment in which you can only improve yourself as a person.
With recent leadership changes, LU is not the place you want to work. The employee campaign "You Matter" has become the university running joke. If you are willing to work for low pay, no appreciation, no advancement, then this is the place for you.
Student Assistant Football Coach (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – May 1, 2017
I was a one day volunteer at a youth sports camp which gave me more experience to do what I love to do and that's coach. it was great working along teammates and other professional football players to help touch the lives of the youth in a positive way.
ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – April 29, 2017
Liberty University was an extremely poor and stressful place for me to work. I was extremely underpaid, yet expected to give more and more time and energy to them. I was degraded and yelled at by my boss in front of other colleagues. I was chastised for trying to take care of an issue by taking responsibility and initiation. I found out our department was doing something incorrectly, so, in hopes to be upstanding, moral, and to avoid a lawsuit, I brought it to the attention of supervisors. I was told that I should have never asked questions. I was never thanked. At least the department was obligated to change their policy to be legitimate, since I brought it to light. From the top down, there were poor examples of leadership and ethics, even though the students are hearing, "be a servant leader" every day. I hated working at Liberty.
