    Pros

    Good intention (goals) managed by poor management and people.

    Cons

    Management and CTO are very political and put politics in front of everything including company/employee future.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being jerks and let the low level engineers get to work. Stop nagging them to account for every minute they breath while on payroll.

    Pros

    Pay was decent and the job was alright. I found the weekly meetings with the supervisor very helpful in personal improvement.

    Cons

    There was a mass lay off. We all went to a meeting and were told of what was happening but didn't know who it was going to affect. About a month later, we were separated into large groups. One group came back to work, the other was walked out.

    Pros

    Steady work, lots of interaction with students, coworkers, and upper management, challenging problems and critical thinking a must.

    Cons

    Position's level of demand can be overwhelming if employee does not have strong time management skills, additional expectations include asking for recommendations for student enrollment (not part of the job description), currently using Salesforce/SRM which is very counterproductive to the position. opportunity to transfer out of position very difficult after 5 years because transfers are not lateral.

    Advice to Management

    abandon Saleforce, the system is counterproductive to position and purpose of finance counselors.

    Pros

    Low expectations for individual job performance. The company is changing and thus, the employees who remain are not micromanaged or placed under a lot of work stress. They want to make a difference in education

    Cons

    The company want to change and it is leaving behind the best work from the past. They also cannot stop laying employees off. Every several weeks someone is being laid-off. This is a lack of leadership and an HR department that is not pushing back.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the bleeding and the employee churn. Don't abandon a working team trying to build a new one. Laying off a team and rehiring some of them without the leadership in place is short sighted.

    Pros

    Hard work is definitely rewarded. Leadership tries to understand capabilities of employees and there are opportunities to grow. Great benefits. Encourages collaboration of employees within the company. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Politics with the company and different groups. Lay offs and reorganizations can bring down the morale of employees and the company can lose good employees.

    Pros

    Salary and overall compensation were adequate. Insurance was ok, but changed very regularly

    Cons

    personal growth was lacking in substance, middle management and frontline managers were not always great - the organization promoted individuals who did not perform.

    Advice to Management

    Find the best of the best managers who not only manage the work - but develop your people. Find those leaders who are able to get the best out of their team - not those who manage their tasks
