    I have been working at Ashford University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility with your schedule. If you have an appointment or a family, this department will work with you and let you take off the time needed.

    Cons

    Awful communication and constant fear of the next layoff. They used to offer a great benefit plan, but that has been cut drastically. Also, management does not know how to manage. The employees usually know more than management.
