    Pros

    There is something about working in non profit education that gets into your blood and can be incredibly inspiring. It feels good to be involved in a cause that can genuinely help people and there is a camaraderie that exists because of this common goal. People are passionate about what they are doing and really care about the vision.

    Cons

    The potential of WGU overall is severely hindered because of the CEO having far too much control over day to day operations. Instead of focusing on creating an environment that draws talent and then allowing that talent to drive innovation and solutions that take higher ed learning into the next generation, the CEO dictates solutions that are sub par and not forward thinking. Talented individuals come in, try to make a difference, and when they cannot, they leave for better pay, and better opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way of progress. Let your movers and shakers get in and make the difference so that WGU can become more innovative in its learning solutions. Higher strong leaders who value collaboration and know how to create a culture of innovation and creativity and let them lead your teams to success.
