    I worked at Charter College full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of the campus level employees are great, it depends on the leadership of the individual campus.. Some of the campus presidents are well regarded by their employees. Others are not. The students are the best reason to go to work every day.

    Cons

    Corporate is out of touch with the campuses and although they say they want campuses to be individual entities they control much of what happens and how it happens. Corporate often says one thing but does another. Often decisions are made at high levels without inviting input from those who might provide relevant insight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Charter College part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere
    Great Students/Co-Workers
    Parking is a plus
    Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Changes that affect your lively hood are not told in advance!!
    The company needs to be more tactful at that!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of everyone on your team. Not just salaried employees and management!!! Compensation could be better as well.

    I have been working at Charter College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are some great people in the company interspersed here and there - people who care about the work they are doing and the impact it has. These people are a joy to work with. I also enjoy many of the particular tasks and responsibilities associated with my position.

    Cons

    Charter College is disorganized in the development and the implementation of its policies, procedures, as well as its inter-departmental communication. Local campus leadership often attempts to resolve its weaknesses with more and more forms and paperwork for all team members to fill out. Positions that are classified as "sales" positions seem to receive annual raises of roughly 10%, while administrative positions only receive annual raises of around 3%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your team members what they think. Be interested in their ideas and try to foster a safe environment for openness and respectful honesty. Don't simply decide we're going to do things a new way - develop the formal company policy through the proper channels, distribute it through the proper channels, and verify that it does not conflict with any existing policies. Work to create procedures that follow the KISS method - aim for streamlined simplicity and the highest efficiency possible. Do as much as you can to reduce the time spent bogged down on extensive manual data tracking.

    I worked at Charter College full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Get Moral on Campus
    Get Compensation & Bonus Opportunity

    Cons

    expectations too high in ref to enrollment each start
    recycled/useless leads that have been called over a 3-4 year period
    High turnover of staff and students
    the price for the product is not equivalent to value that will be derived from the education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be straight forward with all employes about companies/campus standing.
    Communicate more effectively
    train all new employees within the first 2weeks of start date
    don't hold them accountable for mistakes and errors that they have not been properly train on.
    Don't dwell so much on what worked for past admissions reps however try to develop new opportunity so that everyone can be successful in the role uniquely.

    I worked at Charter College full-time

    Pros

    The pay was competitive and the benefits are decent.

    Cons

    The schedule is brutal and all over the place. Management can do no wrong as long as the goals are met. It is a very unprofessional environment. The admissions process is a joke. Anyone with the proper documentation, willingness to make payments and a pulse can enroll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All management should sit through a rigorous HR training course. The directors can and will say whatever they feel is necessary to scare (not motivate) you into making the goal. I was not let go I left voluntarily because I wanted to work for a company with an ethical culture.
