I have been working at Academic Partnerships full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Talented, passionate people who care about education. Lots of growth and focused on serving public universities. Nice downtown Dallas location.

Cons

Being on the cutting edge of technology means rapid change and growth. Not the place to work if you are uncomfortable with rapid change. For some, working in Downtown Dallas isn't the best option.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the recognition and advancement of your talented employees. Thank you for the opportunity!

    I worked at Academic Partnerships full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Schedule somewhat flexible (depends on manager).
    KPIs clearly defined.
    Business casual dress code.
    Great office space located in the Plaza of the Americas (Downtown Dallas).
    Adjacent to public transportation, DART's Pearl Station.

    Cons

    Minimal training (1 week) that didn't focus on the important aspects of the position.
    Daily call/talk time requirement (Ex: 115 calls and 3 hours of talk time a day minimum - if you have less than 3 hours of talk time, you would be required to make more calls.)
    Call strategy - required to call same person multiple times a day, every day for several days until reached.
    You feel less like an educational counselor and more like a telemarketer.
    Multiple weekly meetings (1 on 1's and team meetings).
    Little to no room for advancement within department.
    Difficult to make lateral move within company.
    Low starting salary - minimal, if any, salary increases.
    Micromanaging management style (most not all).

    The management in AP is very "knee jerk" and doesn't put much thought into strategic planning

    Pros

    Great mission for making education accessible and affordable online

    Cons

    Uncontrolled Growth
    Antiquated Top-Down Management Style
    Reactionary Approach to Marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't try to win over every state university all in the same year. Get your processes and people in place FIRST, then go out and win business. It's called managed growth.
