  1. Lots of great things, slow decision making and action from national management.

    Pros

    Overall, the company was a great point for me and my position. There was a lot of growth from the time I started and to this day, it only seems to be improving. Lots of benefits and even occasional perk offers for multiple sources.

    Cons

    Depending on your area, lots of potential drama, delayed decision making, lack of communication per location and national management. Lots of areas of opportunity for improvement and cost savings to reduce student tuition.

    Advice to Management

    Don't only preach communication and "taking ownership", but also learn to practice it yourselves as that is where I saw a lot of lacking. By management, I directly call out "national" management and not so much local management.

    Pros

    Salary was decent and location

    Cons

    Previous instructor that was told "pass" my group through or "could" lose my job. Bullied and harassed by Phoenix campus leadership. Brought concerns to human resources and they did nothing. Went to ethics compliance and they td the campus dean who confronted me about making the compliant!! Harassed and forced to resign as was treated like a prisoner in a war camp! Should have realized issues when faculty turn over was high when started. So, nothing has changed!!?? Wow! Perspective faculty and students beware!!

    Advice to Management

    Watched out chamberlain senior management!! One day the state board will shut the program down for misconduct and gross academic falsification!! The media is paying attention to all the corrupt nursing schools!!

  3. Good company, in need of some internal process upgrades

    Pros

    The pros include working a flexible schedule and able to work with students.

    Cons

    The Phoenix campus leadership is out of control. They take cheating to a new level. Some instructors prepare students to the tests and not the overall material needed for the course. When students fail the exams, the instructors give students sufficient points back to ensure that they pass the exams and the course, even if the student does not know the material. When an instructor with a back bone or ethics decides not to change grades, then the faculty chair goes into the course shell and changes test scores so that students pass the course. I hate to be the patient being cared for by these students. Nursing is a trusted profession, shouldn't nurse education be the same? Sadly, no one in the organization cares that we are forced to change grades - ethics seriously lack within this organization.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should take serious action against the organization president, as well as the entire leadership team at the Phoenix campus!

    Pros

    Benefits, great management team, opportunity outside of a single department, flexible schedule enabled the ability to have active roll in family activities. Very caring group with genuine care for employees

    Cons

    Can burn out and seemingly monotonous days after a few years. Sometimes felt like high school with the cliques, created a interesting dynamic at times.

    Pros

    I am never worried about my position here. The seem to keep employees around, even the seemingly unstable ones. I'm not sure if its loyalty or laziness, but definitely nice to not have to worry about job security.

    Cons

    There is very limited opportunities for growth in this company, from my experience. There is also a lot of unprofessionalism here.

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be nice if leadership could be evaluated by their subordinates, to keep them on task.
