    Pros

    Faculty, staff, dean, functional managers, director, curricula, students. An excellent educational institution for its target demographic. I am honored to have worked with these individuals.

    Cons

    C-level team has mis-managed the company to the point that its continued existance is in question.

    Advice to Management

    Current CEO and former CFO are under indictment by SEC. Numerous proceedings against company by federal regulatory agencies and state Attorneys General. Facing possible action by Department of Education.

    Pros

    Nice campus. Nice people that are friendly and easy to work with in most departments. Great to interact with faculty, Dean and Department Chairs on the academic side.

    Cons

    No fun or positive energy in the admissions department at all. The management makes you feel like children, doesn't trust you to do your job, and doesn't give you the tools to do it welThe admissions department has an oppressive culture. Calling prospective students can be discouraging and boring so a smart culture would provide high energy, camaraderie and taking breaks. If you are talking to a co-worker on the floor you have to whisper like children or the director will walk up to your desk with an "important" lead to stop you. If you ask for time off they won't give it to you or make you make up the hours during the week. In two months, the staff went from 9 to 5, hired 5 people, 4 people quit and their back down to 5. Hours are ridiculous and not effective busy practice. Each day you work a different shift. 12-9, 11-8, 10-7, 9-6, 9-6 one week. The next week you work 12-9, 11-8, 10-7, 9-6, take a day off during the week and work Saturday 9-4, which means you have to take 1/2 hour lunches during the week and you don't get two days off consecutive. They micro-manage the time you take lunches and the time you take off.

    Advice to Management

    Upgrade your calling system and application software. My God, you're a technical college. It's a smart investment, reps could reach more people, speed up the application process to free up their time to reach more people and look more credible to students. You'll also keep staff if their job isn't so frustrating. Plain and simple, the management has no idea how to socially relate to people. They will not answer questions or help. Reps are left to help each other figure it out. People need consistency in their work schedule. A different shift every day? This isn't fast food.

    Pros

    - I started working with some supportive administrators - good teaching experience, some of my students were proactive and serious about their education. - Reasonably good facilities and accommodations.

    Cons

    Teaching contract paid by class Considered to be replaceable Don't expect a raise, no benefits for contract job Admissions sometime allowed students into fields of study when the student did not have the basic (math) skills to complete their coursework.

    Advice to Management

    People are the business of education - for-profit schools might easily fall into placing too much emphasis on profit instead of graduating well prepared students. Do not compromise on standards in preliminary skills. If students do not have the basic skills to complete a course of study, allowing them to enroll and pay for the program is not doing them a favor.
