    Big changes

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe pay is above industry standard and the benefits are excellent. Working environment is clean and well kept which is not common in higher education industry

    ConsToo many layers to get simple tasks completed. Political favorite overrides merit, hard work and especially knowledge. If you know what you are doing then you are not a director

    Advice to Senior ManagementSeek to promote employees with knowledge and willingness increase efficiency. Seek to understand what is causing problems rather than pushing budgetary goals down stream.

    Student Focused

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBrown Mackie has great people and everyone is very student focused. It is like a family and everyone seems to care about each other.

    ConsIt is a small college and most of the work load does seem to fall on adjuncts for both mentoring and tutoring students who often need much help.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Complete Nightmare-Don't work here for more than one year!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you are looking to get into higher education, this is an easy foot in the door. The pay is competitive, and they do provide tuition reimbursement, albeit for one of their other for profit schools. I met some great people during my time here.

    ConsPromotions are based on nepotism and brown-nosing, rather than merit and education. Some of the highest ranking people in the company, even at the corporate level have associate degrees. On a campus level, they may not even have that. As an exempt employee, you are expected to work 6 days per week, and long hours at that. The work environment is toxic, with negativity and fear mongering trickling down from the top. There are constant lay offs and threats of firings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEliminate the completely ineffectual management and promote people who work hard and have the education to back up their position. Listen to suggestions. Instead of being threatened by talent and eliminating it, encourage staff and faculty to voice ideas and opinions. Be more considerate of work-life balance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIT's a good place to work, however, it is very fast paced, and there is a pressure to meet a goal every month. The students make it worth coming into work every day.

    Conswork-life to balance is difficult, and there is a constant micromanagement coming from corporate which has a tendency to make it harder to do your job.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
