    Learn Lead and in Need of Change - CAU

    Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    Pros- The tuition allowance is by far the best benefit of working at Clark Atlanta University.
    - Compensation at CAU for an education institution is average.
    -

    Cons- No merit increases in the last several years.
    - Senior leadership tenured and not adapting to innovation.
    - No online course offering.
    - Senior leadership not able to deliver on the strategic vision and planning.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCAU is an established research university with rich history and tradition. However, this alone is not a competitive advantage for students to make a decision. Lack of technology innovation, seasoned teachers not able to deliver technology into the classroom. Low enrollment numbers could be resolved by offering continuing education and online course offerings. The city of Atlanta is very competitive with over 14 other Colleges in the Metro Atlanta area with better tuition pricing for a quality degree.

    Very Unprofessional place to work

    Staff (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe people and the students

    ConsExtremely political environment. Individuals not promoted based on contributions but promoted based on having their nose in the right person's face.

    Senior Management, Executive level management.

    If you're getting a job here, get your money UP FRONT. Don't expect any promotions or raises unless you're a tried and true brown noser. You've been duly warned..................

    Advice to Senior ManagementRetire. Move out the way for new, inspired management who will make a difference.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
