Former Employee - Admissions Counselor

I worked at 2U full-time

Pros

Great salary for higher education recruitment, both entry-level. Good people who work there. Fun corporate environment. Great happy hours.

Amazing CEO. Chip Paucek is approachable, friendly, honest, inspiring.

Cons

Repetitive work, true of all sales jobs, but especially so because this is not commissions-based. People seem to be promoted more on back-room discussions rather than sales performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a clearer career development path

    I have been working at 2U

    Pros

    - Growing company with lots of opportunities
    - Partners with AMAZING programs that are honestly changing education
    - Students that graduate from 2tor's programs have a profound impact on the world because of their fields (Education, Nursing, Social Work, ...ect)
    - Fun company culture with monthly contests and events
    - Laid back dress code that allows employees to wear jeans every day
    - They do lots of drives in my office and promote charitable events across the company
    - Amazing management that listens to the employees
    - No Axxhole policy promotes a positive employee experience by encouraging employees to have an entrepreneurial spirit, support each other, and pitch in where needed
    - Outside of being amazing leaders with a great vision for education Chip and John are genuinely nice people who care about this company and the people that work for them.

    Cons

    This company has gone through a few growing pains by becoming very large in a very short period of time. But it appears that the toughest times might be behind them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a better way for employees to communicate with upper management. Don't let the culture change as we get bigger.
