The best thing about working at Pacific Lutheran University is the sense of community and belonging. The worst is probably the pay, it is definitely below what one would get in the public sector, they are aware of it and have been working to close the gap, but it is a long process.
With the administration change in 2012, there were a lot of cut backs and people being ousted. And this year, 2017, the President is leaving so there will be a year with an interim President and then a whole new administration that will probably make more changes. The next couple years will be in flux.
Great benefits, use of University facilities, tuition remission
The new administration will make it interesting again for 2017 and beyond.
