    I worked at Alliant International University full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The location in San Francisco offers many opportunities for scholarship, research, and professional work. There are many relevant institutions locally.

    Cons

    Lack of resources for the important things, too many changes without appropriate planning. Poor relationships among constituent groups. Poor leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much to write.

    I worked at Alliant International University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nothing really. Do I really need to put words in here for the heck of it?

    Cons

    Long overdue. While I was working at the SF location this place was toxic, hostile and cliquey. Roles were not clarified and blurred boundaries of various departments. The reorganization was a failure. Communication from senior leadership (President, CFO, VP HR, VP SS, and Deans) is none. They are so overworked.
    There is a high turnover of staff at the SF location. There is no campus director for a while and appointed are less than qualified people to run administrative services. It's like they picked names out of a hat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close the school down

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!!!

    Pros

    Level below senior leadership is friendly, helpful and passionate about the University's mission. Used to be a great work life balance.

    Cons

    Some poor leadership choices in recent years resulting in a fragmented leadership team. Not good at implementation of strategy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become cohesive team players - focus on fighting competitors instead of each other.
