    I worked at Argosy University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay Day's duties vary often Great benefits PTO and Holidays Room for growth

    Cons

    Impossible Goals Pressure on workers to "sell" the school to prospect students who are not ready Too often there are changes to regulations, curriculum, and makes the job atmosphere unsteady

    Advice to Management

    The Grad team are the most important in the company and making sure they are not stressed or pressured makes for a more productive atmosphere. Also, working on getting students that can STAY rather than students period would make for better students and even better grad team.
