    Great location. Great benefits. Nice coworkers. Appears to have good advancement opportunities. Fantastic starting salary.


    Listless company goals/leadership. More than 4 major organizations changes since I've been there. The company pays a lot of lip service to being "Here for good" and student focused, but they do not back it up. If you work on the sales side, your life might be peachy. But if you're interested at all in working for the student side, expect minimal resources, broken technology, and a lot of hot air. You'll be apologizing to students A LOT for things that are fixable but the company doesn't care enough to give the money or time. There are a lot of people that care, even up to the Executive level (although many of them have now left), but it has yet to result in positive change. A lot of politics. Inconsistent management across teams. Very discouraging to see some teams consistently going to happy hour, leaving early, going to the gym for an hour when you have so much work to do that you're not sure you can even leave on time that day. They are bringing in a lot of external people lately and not saying much about future structure.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending. Stop chasing after the customers you don't yet have and focus on the ones you do. The students who are actually PAYING for an education even though you've done the bait and switch on them.
