    Pros

    Massive school discounts for people that need education. Good job if you like to sell 30-50k degree to someone that is poor desperate and only going to get 4 classes done and hang debt on them.

    Cons

    They don't pay, the best part about this job is working for the school benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to better compensate employees other than free school. Have more team building activities. If your not going to pay make the teams smaller for more management advancement opportunities.
