    I have been working at Chicago School of Professional Psychology

    Pros

    Fair compensation for higher ed, plenty of professional development opportunities, friendly work environment, great benefits!

    Cons

    --Poor technology. Their IT team is solid but they need to have the funding to update and improve systems.
    --Disorganized reporting system. Need clearer departments and reporting structures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prioritize better service to the students (improved technology, improved customer service--students want in person service). Improve relations between staff and faculty.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed how close I currently am located to the chicago school. Despite it being in a great location, i was really able to excel in the programs.

    Cons

    I wish I would have chosen to attend TCSPP before spending so much money on an out of state private college during my first year of teaching going back and forth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest adding more programs in more obscure areas of psychology. This could be of interest to those creative types who are looking to enter the field.

    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 a 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!

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

    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.
