  1.  

    Easy Campus Ambassador Position

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Becker Professional Education as an intern

    Pros

    Being a Campus Ambassador for Becker is pretty easy, not much of a time commitment. My supervisors were always friendly and helpful. Good opportunity for college students looking to go into accounting. You receive a free CPA Exam Review upon completion of the position.

    Cons

    There wasn't much structure to the position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring a bit more structure to the position, demand a bit more from the ambassadors. They might be more helpful than you give them credit for.

    Pros

    Employees are dedicated to their work and focus on the company's mission. Good benefits. Management surveys employees twice per year and listens to the feedback. Company has done a good job changing with the market.

    Cons

    Little room for advancement due to the size of the organization. Some employees have been in the same role for a number of years.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Becker Professional Education

    Pros

    There are no pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    This is one of the worst working environments I have ever been in. There is blatant nepotism in this office. There is no reward for hard work unless there is a familial tie or personal relation to those making decisions. Management does not listen and does not seem to be caring towards their employees.The pay is rather dismal for the area. Temporary employees are treated poorly and unfairly. Unacceptable behavior is tolerated and even at times rewarded. Due to these named issues, this creates a very unwelcoming, toxic, environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.
