    The Ohio State University

    Junior Admissions Counselor (Current Employee)

    ProsIt offers a great working environment, benefits, office, retirement, and football tickets! I feel like I'm a part of a large family here and there are always new faces to meet.

    ConsEmployees get away with leaving the office early and going on useless, unrelated office trips (Ex: Hobby Lobby, day vacation places that are hours away). Even though the supervisor knows it, the trips and goofing off never stops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFire the bad, keep the good. Keep up the great work of pulling people aside to talk to them rather than address the entire group.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
