    I worked at Alliant International University

    Pros

    I found they were open to new ideas regarding student impact provided that it is reasonably supported with evidence and rationale. The students are great to work with.

    Cons

    Somewhat bureaucratic, so it took some time for ideas to transpire into action

  2. This organization does not have a good outloo for growth and energy.

    Pros

    Nothing good bc the organization does not care for the students or staff.

    Cons

    This organization does not value it's people or fairness. Roles and positions are not clarified. Too much inbreeding with people that have no qualifications moving up. Unethical practices of PDs and Dean.

    Advice to Management

    Why? They won't listen!

  3. Helpful (1)

    You'll gain skills and experience, but it will cost you in frustration and low moral. This place is a quick pit stop.

    Pros

    Beautiful area of San Francisco to work (Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf). Friendly staff. Eager students.

    Cons

    Ineffectual leadership. Complete lack of communication from the top down. Mismanagement of personnel and funds. Changing from a non-profit to a benefits corporation (for-profit), due to mismanagement of funds and personnel. No performance reviews. Excessive staff turnover. Low moral due to poor leadership. No room for upward mobility within the school in terms of career and no personal development in terms of training.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management from the top (CEO), down needs to be ousted. When the school is taken over by the UVA I hope they re-organize the school again.

    Too much to write.

    Pros

    Their retirement pkg is good I would imagine

    Cons

    Pay and benefits for new comers are terrible here
    President (who is the by the way?) makes six digits but does nothing for his staff and people
    Women heavy (too many women that cause drama and are gabby Bettys and don't work)
    Technology is backwards here which causes work processes to halt
    Network/Internet out 40% of the time
    Lack of sensitivity and diversity training
    Ethics and confidentially don't exist here
    HR, huh? HR doesn't know what's happening half the time
    Turn over -turn over -turn over -turn over
    Senior Faculty and Program directors do their own thing making it difficult to work in unity - the student suffers

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who do the work for a fraction of salaries you a make
    You all are never in your offices
    I'd love job making six figures & not doing being accountable. Wait, no I wouldn't. That is ethically wrong!!!

  11. They are a "DIPLOMA MILL" and should be shut down by the APA!
