    Eagle Gate

    Course Instructor (Former Employee)

    ProsIf you enjoy teaching students, who in most cases need and in some case deserve a second chance to excel .. you will be gratified, you will get large doses of personal growth and occasionally student gratitude. My colleagues were personable and genuinely cared.

    ConsFluctuation in class sizes does lead to fluctuations in your contract salary term to term. I am not disgruntled at all; I enjoyed working with the students but the high turn over of faculty and staff is not an anomaly.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Over worked under paid

    Program Director (Current Employee)

    ProsSome students are great
    Follow program workers awesome to work with

    ConsProgram directors are expected to work 15 hour shifts and then work extra days going to recruitment fairs
    Program directors are expected to do anything to keep students enrolled
    Students who can barely read and write are allowed into school
    Upper management made major cuts in staff in order to save money but none of that money has found its way to program directors or other staff.
    Upper management is often inconsistent, condescending, and abusive to employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop over working your employees. Treat them decently stop yelling at them when they have to drop a student for what ever the reason. If I could I would give this company zero stars especially in work/life balance and culture& values.

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

    Good people, great vision, but…

    Admissions Representative (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsCaring staff and faculty who tried to meet the needs of every student that focused self empowerment with the intention to better students situations and help them succeed and be prepared for their new career.

    ConsStudents were often seen as a number. Education was expensive, even though it was less than other for profit schools.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to foster employee retention by listening to what they say.

    Subversive to a fault...

    Associate Director of Admissions (Former Employee) Layton, UT

    ProsAs a company the employment is good cosnidering they pay relatively fair wages. Some really great people to work with there.

    ConsLacking responsible mid-level leadership, campuses seem to be silo's. Easily swayed to make hiring decisions based on emotion and appearence as opposed to logic.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold leadership more accountible and enforce policies accross the board. Prevent employee churning by respecting people have life events which can influence performance in the short-term. Rather than being reactive, try being proactive with these employees.

    Great opportunity to help students, poor corporate leadership

    Lead Instructor (Current Employee)

    ProsStudents who attend Eagle Gate College are very diverse. Most have difficult lives outside of school that interfere with their abilities to learn. This, however, forces many of these students to be very street smart and teachers have a great opportunity to influence students in a positive direction.

    Adjunct educators do not have to worry about numbers and paperwork and can focus solely on teaching.

    Corporate will listen to academia if they shout loud enough and unite with the same departments of other schools.

    Decent benefits package.

    ConsEagle Gate places their priorities and chains of command in the following order:

    1. Corporate Employees
    2. Business Employees
    3. Full-Time Educators (required to accomplish more work than any other entity)
    4. Adjunct Educators (are paid the least)
    5. Students (required to pay a lot)

    There has been a disappointing chasm between those involved in Academia, and those involved in the business pursuits of the school.

    Full-time educators, specifically Program Administrators, must embrace teaching and corporate responsibilities. Because of this dual responsibility, the turnover rate for full-time educators is nearly 100%. Corporate repeatedly ignores this number, which is frustrating to Eagle Gate students and educators.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStudents base their college experience on the caliber of their teachers more than anything else. Take advice from academia (students + educators) more than you have in the past. Confront your disastrous academic educator turnover rate, and reduce the workload of Program Administrators.

    Adjunct faculty members get paid less at Eagle Gate than most other local colleges and universities.
