    I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees and the teachers are great to work with and really create a good learning environment.

    Cons

    Run like a for-profit. Business decisions are based on dollars, and nothing more. Employees are not valued at all, in fact most employees are treated as short-term workers. If you'd like to work here, you'd better believe in the mission, because management neither believes or behaves like they value their mission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't care to share any because I have never seen any evidence that management listens to anyone but themselves. The administration is going to run this school into the ground.

    I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and working w/ the students.

    Cons

    You do not matter if you have "Staff" connected to your name. Years of service mean nothing to this institution--you will be tossed aside like yesterday's garbage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the current administrative infrastructure!

    I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology

    Pros

    Comprehensive psychology programs with proven outcomes.

    Cons

    A lot of teaching os required with less emphasis on research. But, this is the model woth practitioner-scholars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to what has worked in the past as changes are not always needed. Progression is good, but respect must be paid to the history of organizations.

    Pros

    A very professional company to work for.

    Cons

    Adjunct pay is problematic, but this is probably a wider issue than just this institution.

    I worked at Chicago School of Professional Psychology part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great office, unique atmosphere, young and energetic, always growing. Gained some valuable experience. Fun location downtown at 7th and Grand. I would absolutely recommend for someone looking to get into higher education administration.

    Cons

    Parking downtown can be tough without a parking lot, or some sort of compensation. Not as much room for growth as I would have liked, but they do hire from within for certain positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep developing talent in house. Don't stop growing!

    Proper training would make better workers.

    I worked at Chicago School of Professional Psychology full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working here, you will encounter great people! There is great flexibility, time to mingle with co-workers and excellent time off.

    Cons

    Extremely poor communication on the upper management level. The agenda here is to act first and think about the consequences later. Do your research before ever considering to work here.

    Very high turn over on every level. The average person only stays about 1.5 years or less. Some faculty has been here longer.

    No real integration into the culture. All of the information received about the organization is outdated. And the morale is pretty much in the garbage.

    Note: This is an extremely political place. I know some places can be. But beware and prepare if you ever consider wanting to work here. This is a great example of a bait and switch organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring mediocre people and then a few months later, promote them to higher level positions. There are people in positions here that have no idea what it means to a true leader or innovator. TCSPP could flourish if they found a way to retain real talent and believe in their own mission and vision-not just the money.

    No originality in this day and age...could have been one of the greatest but I see this school being taken over in the very near future.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, flexibility, relatively low stress,

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be a "What have you done for me lately environment" although I think this is true of most admissions roles. I do like it better than working in for-profit. The admissions standards for students are fairly rigorous compared to for-profits which seems like everyone can get in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to look at the year to date performance - not just last week's performance

    Pros

    I have truly enjoyed my time at the College. The students are extremely diverse and not only do I teach them but, I learn from them.

    Cons

    I feel like I can do more for the college and they are not allowing me to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the personal-growth and allow others to give advice so we can all grow as a team.
