TCU touts itself as being a “family,” but I have not been a part of that. I have both my graduate and undergraduate degree from TCU and they will not give me a full time job. They only call me when they are in a hole, despite the over 20 years of loyalty and incredibly high teacher evaluations I receive.

Fort Worth is a great place to live at. Texas Christian University is a beautiful University tucked into fort worth, not far from Arlington or Dallas.

Work Is very relaxed. Management handles everything really well, and are very respectful and understanding. The job is not really hard, and pays very well for the amount of work required.

Lack of Leadership at the Department/College level.

TCU is so focused on growing its “National Image” as a University that it has lost what has been its draw for the past 25 years...Small classes and individual attention from faculty and administrators.

The college Admin is spending a lot of energy on courting and hiring Big Name Professors with lots of titles, but not paying attention to the INCIVILITY taking place within the ranks of those that are already here.

TCU talks up their Diversity Plans. But within the rank and and file in MULTIPLE DEPARTMENTS there is BLATANT favoritism. And especially AGEISM that no one sees as a problem. Especially when it comes from a young professor who has a TCU Degree, or an Assistant Dean with the same.


TCU is definitely a “Good Ol’ Boys” (and Girls) Club!


I have watched colleagues who were excellent professors with Doctorate Degrees (and sometimes 15-20 YEARS of experience) get passed over for prime teaching positions, in favor of extremely poor and prejudiced teachers (that have only a Masters and less than 5 yrs experience) because those teachers had gotten their Undergraduate or Masters from TCU.

There is Blatant Verbal targeting and intimidation toward insecure students from some of these folks. And there are no consequences for those teachers if they have the “protected” TCU Alum status.


The one advantage to staying is that my kids can get Free Tuition—to not only TCU, but to a number of other Quality Colleges (i.e. Baylor-but others nationwide as well) with whom we have a Reciprocity

Pros
Student interaction, some really good folks to teach along side
Cons
Favoritism and Blatant incivility by younger faculty toward older more experienced faculty.

TCU has great benefits and a casual environment. However, the workload is stressful and there are not enough Administrative Asst. to cover this. Human Resources is always takes the Professor's or Dean's opinion over the other employees.
Pros
Free tuition for children after 3 years of empolyment
Cons
Highly stressful and demading
