    Pros

    Benefits, location of my office

    Cons

    Selling over priced degree programs to the poor, Lack of integrity and diversity from a Leadership stand point. Too much change in a short time. No incentives or growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees, We all know that the forprofit education sector is in trouble!

    Pros

    Comradery with employees in the same position, good location, not a difficult job

    Cons

    Where to begin? Despite what they say, it is a numbers-based environment. They will say they are looking at soft skills but really they are looking at how many students you apply. Lack of HR presence. Need to document everything to cover your back. Coaching/training is laughable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit promoting your friends. If you never hear the word "no", you will never improve and get better.

    Tuition Benefit is great for those wanting to finish degree.

    Young management hinders growth for staff with the ambition to learn and develop; pay is ok, and will have to wear multiple hats.

    Pros

    Great benefits especially tuition assistance. Teams do lots of activities especially on holidays

    Cons

    Management doesn't care until they are forced to. When employee engagement surveys come out and they stink then managers are forced to find ways to fix it....only to forget about the whole process a few months later.

    There is no work-life balance. Managers come and go as they please but want you to work evenings, weekends, and holidays and any other day even when you have a family.

    Micromanaging is horrible especially in my former department. There are also way too many "managers" trying to make decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show genuine care for your employees and give them some autonomy. Don't micromanage and embrace change.
