    I worked at Bisk Education full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, benefits, etc. Access to 16 accredited universities for certificates and degrees. Company will pay for education ( indentured servant policy).

    Advice: take the training via certs or degrees and move on.

    Cons

    Micro managed call center.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees when they are asking for help. Subordinates who are asking for assistance should get help when they need it. Some passive aggressive natures with new managers.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, people who work in marketing seem to care about their jobs

    Cons

    Do not trust anybody. There is a culture of back stabbing and gossip and the new deputy walks around in a daze half the time, the other half time she spends making snide remarks to people.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of you "expert" deputy in marketing, she has already caused 4 good managers to quit and she doesn't know the business.

    Pros

    Good size company for a private company. They do have an inviting atmosphere and they do implement many activities that promote good team spirit.

    Cons

    Although they are technically not allowed to 'sell' education, they implement many sales tactics and hold ee's accountable by similar measures.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach! Micro managing tends to be annoying and it feels a lot like being baby sat instead of being treated as a well educated professional.

  7. An outstanding experience with great opportunities to grow

    Work became mundane and routine at times. Low initial pay, I received 3 pay raises but felt i wasn't being paid compared to the amount of enrollments I had

    Advice to Management

    Continue your effort on increasing morale and changing the culture

    Pros

    Free education....that's it. Get it and get out!

    Cons

    Management truly doesn't care for employees...at one point we were supposed to have a picnic and it wasn't signed off on for no obvious reason, so even though we met sales goals, they cancelled it last minute...way to keep your word!!! Terrible corporate culture...it says "I just don't care about my employees." All kinds of harassment are rampant, and HR/management won't do a thing! Raises didn't come or were for the "favorites," as are moves into another department. If you love working on the phones and hounding people, then this is the job for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere...the pay is some of the worst I've ever worked for but I got some education, so that's why I stayed.

    Advice to Management

    Change management....change the culture. Upper management needs to know and care what their management team is doing to employees!

    Pros

    NONE!!!What a joke!! This company lures you in under the belief that the position of Lead Generation Rep is a nice sit down office job where you will be interacting with potential students and assisting them with information as to which college they will attend. It's all a lie!! Most of the customers you'll be making calls to aren't even interested and have already told Bisk numerous times to remove them from the dialer!! My first week I had people using explicit language and threatening me, I had one woman scream so loud that I had to take off my headset. Management won't do a single thing to help you and actually expects you to create leads from the irate calls. The last straw for me was being told by my boss that I would have to stay on the line, and listen to an irate call until THEY hung up!!! I walked out the same day, its not worth the crummy $10/hr they pay you. Its barely above being a telemarketer, RUN FOR THE HILLS!!

    Cons

    Little support from management
    Low compensation
    Rude customers
    No customer interaction guidelines

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees
    Set some guidelines for customer interaction

    Pros

    I work freelance as a remote content/SEO writer. That's a pro.

    Cons

    I could use more work.

    Advice to Management

    Send more projects my way. I am flexible and I provide top quality writing well within project time frames.
