Very difficult atmosphere for talented outsiders (those coming from outside of the university)
Director (Current Employee) –  Redlands, CAJuly 1, 2014
Very poor human resources and management training. Not in compliance with HR laws/best practices. Still use paper and hard files for documentation.

Do not reward high performers.

High level of inbreeding: only truly accept employees that are UoR grads.

University will never leave the era of the1950s. Char Burgess remains a old dinosaur who never retires--the University will never reach a greater height because leadership will not embrace necessary change.

Student body continues to decline. Students will be accepted on the basis of the amount of tuition that they are able to pay. This encourages all under-performers from wealthy families to attend.
Pros
small grounds, fairly good restaurants nearby
Cons
poor pay and benefits

Very productible environment to work
Assistant Director/Teacher (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CAAugust 25, 2015

It is a high level institution where everyone behaves with high values to each other. Professionalism is one of its strengths.

Cons
Too much responsibility when you are student at the same time.

Dealing with entitled and ignorant people. Great personalities that collided with my humble attitude. After working in the Food Industry for two years, I have realized that it is not an industry that I see fit with a career that I would like to one day pursue.

A very busy and unappreciated position
ACCOUNTS PAYABLE COORDINATOR (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CAJanuary 27, 2014
I was very busy from the minute I stepped into the office which was a great thing, however the hardest part of the job was that there were some areas of inconsistancy which was a bit frustrating with there processing procedures of accounts payable. I had learned a great deal of what it takes to work in a non-profit organization. Management claimed to be open for improvement but unfortuantely there wasn't really any openess. Co-workers were nice but not very proactive in stating improvements due to lack of positive feedback from management, somewhat depressing. The most enjoyable part of the job was problem solving and completing the process of payments to the faculty and students.
Pros
mandatory lunch breaks
Cons
work load, payment requests from faculty a bit stressful.

School Work Grader (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CAJune 24, 2013
I picked up the homework packets, and graded them. I learned responsibility, because I was required to handle private information. My supervisor was very helpful and communicative. I had no co-workers. The hardest part of the job was making sure the first homework was graded under the same expectations as the last homework. The most enjoyable part of the job was successfully grading all of the homeworks.
