    I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology

    Pros

    Competent faculty and nice people overall.

    Cons

    Poor infrastructure and leadership results in a languishing institution. A broken record of poor planning led by leadership lacking basic business and interpersonal skills and ability to rally staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management and business training is sorely needed, especially at the executive level. Look at value that employees bring to the table, regardless if they have a graduate degree or not.

    Pros

    The entry-mid level staff at TCS is wonderful. They are all intelligent, engaged, and focused on making the student experience a better one. There is a lot of networking to be done with the staff. Every third Thursday, the School hosts a beer/wine/appetizer happy hour from 4-5. It's a great way to mingle with other departments. They also offer "summer hours" which is 8 work ours off every 2 weeks in June & July.

    Cons

    Organizationally, it's very top heavy and departments are run by people who have little to know exposure/experience in higher education. Unless you work in the academic side, do not expect a promotion or recogniztion of your skills and accomplishments. Those in the services side of the fence, are often compared to flight attendants and expected to act as such. I was told that "teaching only happens in the classroom" and that anyone else should not try to educate students - virtually sending ancillary and student services back into the dark ages. There is no support for professional development and no room for mobility. THe pay here is the lowest I've ever seen in higher education.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your staff tangibly with a bonus/raise structure and have a look at the pay for your entry level employees. Support employees and increase their morale as they are charged with the retention of your students. Train management as needed and stop congratulating those that do poor work.
