Placement

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at ECPI University full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExcellent Instructors who really care about their students.

ConsThe Moorefield Placement office is terrible from top to bottom. The attitudes towards students is bad, they do not place Engineers in Engineering positions and I don't think she even knows what an Engineer does. If they do place you, it will be in a low skilled job with low pay and with a mom and pop type company and the same goes for their internships.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to clean house in the placement department and put some people in those positions that care about the students and not there just to pick up a pay check.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Disappointing

Nurse Faculty (Former Employee)
Greensboro, NC

I worked at ECPI University full-time for more than a year

ProsStudents and faculty are awesome.

ConsPoor communication from upper management. Indecisiveness rules and faculty do not feel valued.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key. Face to face conversation is more effective than mass emails.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Horrible company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Virginia Beach, VA

I worked at ECPI University full-time for less than a year

ProsNice co-workers.
Decent 9-5 schedule with no weekends/nights.

ConsThe company does not value their employees at all. Employees are treated poorly and expected to perform work not included in their job description. Upper management is shady and is also looking for a scapegoat to blame.
You only receive two weeks off a year which includes your sick time. Even unpaid time off is not really allowed.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome a better company to work for. Most of your employees are extremely dissatisfied and leaving to work for better companies.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's a paycheck.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at ECPI University full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMeeting & helping students develop their educational & career goals.

ConsLousy hours and benefits. When they force you to work a holiday (and you only get 5 to start with) it doesn't do much to improve morale.

Advice to Senior ManagementHappier employees would make it easier to retain students. They can see what's going on and how you treat your employees. Get out of your ivory tower and see that investment in technology is NOT the same as investing in the people doing the work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awful

Admissions Advisor (Former Employee)

I worked at ECPI University full-time for less than a year

ProsWorking with students who were truly interested in bettering themselves. ECPI also has wonderful equipment for the students to learn hands on.

ConsTelemarketing in disguise! If you do not have a student coming in, you will spend all 8 hours of your day on the phone calling people who could have potentially requested information on ANY college up to 5 years ago! Management does not care about students, instead sees them as dollar signs. Employees have virtually no holidays off except Christmas and Thanksgiving. They would rather have you calling potential students on Christmas Eve than risk losing a dollar.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care of your employees and students!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
