    Pros

    Great benefits and incredible, smart compassionate coworkers. The education is solid and you know you are helping people.

    Cons

    The Channelside location is poorly managed and quietly allows a hostile work environment in the admissions (enrollment counselor) department. Micromanaged environment without a chance to apply creative thinking. Any improvement suggestions made by an employee is seen as negative. Many strong employees aggressively pushed out for creative smart ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the surveys. Employees want room to think, be creative, and be appreciated. No one should have to fear for their jobs when having children or being hospitalized.

    Pros

    Work schedule flexibility for students, potential for quality work assignments, higher education experience, and published writing.

    Cons

    Inconsistent policies, constantly changing management/leadership, poor communication from editors to staff. Very un-transparent organization, editors are the gatekeepers who don't let you know whats required to make it through the gate.

    Advice to Management

    Ethical standards and staff expectations must be clear for consistent performance from staff. Many jobs cannot be done within the 20 hours allotted. Cut the gossip within management, unless you saw what happened you do not know what happens.

    Pros

    Great benefits, quality education, supportive staff

    Cons

    The "call center" at the Channelside location was a horrible place to work. We were practically treated like children and management had zero clue how to manage their employees. Training was non existent. And the few managers who tried to actually manage were conveniently forced out for a more strict and micro-managing choice typically from a for-profit school. Managing a non profit school is entirely different than for-profit and management should have realized this but did not.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect, as they deserve. Listen to your employees for ideas on recruitment and retention.

    Pros

    Employees are friendly, campus is beautiful, cafeteria is good. Parking is very reasonable, and there is a small gym on campus.

    Cons

    Schedules, vacation requests, working conditions, and pay are all dependent on your supervisor not on whether you do your job well. Nepotism is rampant. Firings are not uncommon. Someone who worked for this company for more than 15 years was walked off the job (fired). Not the most secure place to work.

    Advice to Management

    The Emperor wears no clothes. Stop surrounding top Management with yes people. Stop putting new people in management positions, like Chairs and co-Chairs, as it is done to put pressure on them to say yes, and they don't have the experience to do the job well.

    Pros

    Great campus, some really nice students and co-workers that make your job feel worthwhile. Also there are plenty of events on campus if you don't care for cows.

    Cons

    Parking sucks. Be ready to walk.

    Lower management is all terrified of losing their jobs. Most of them would throw you under the bus if it meant saving their hide.

    Don't expect those Core values to be practiced.

    Advice to Management

    Relax, give people some job security.
