    Pros

    You can make really good money doing a brainless job; especially if you are afforded the chance to do so working from home!

    Cons

    The rules, procedures, regulations, and policies change EVERY WEEK. By the time you implement last weeks methodologies, you are already being disciplined for not complying to this weeks regulations. Not to mention all of the lies that you tell your students about their chances of getting into school. So many students are depending on you to provide accurate information to, in most cases, assist them with enrolling in school to further their careers. Although you know full well that they will not meet deadlines or admission requirements, you still allow for them to spend their money on applications and books just for them to find out that they've not been accepted (shocker) and will not be eligible for promotion with their jobs.
    Not to mention, the amount of times a day you will be cursed out on the phones by disgruntled students who haven't found out their acceptance status in months OR have sent documents to the admissions office that have been "lost".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP TREATING YOUR EMPLOYEES LIKE FOOLS. IF THEY WEREN'T THERE TO LISTEN TO/BE CURSED OUT BY POTENTIAL STUDENTS, THERE WOULD BE NO ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIPS.

    Pros

    good salary. that's about it.

    Cons

    strategy changes every other week, no consistency, no training, treat employees as if they are expendable from the very start. no opportunities for growth or advancement. they don't ask for any employee input on anything. if you are fine with being paid to practice futility, great place to work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your employees. determine a consistent strategy. stop thinking you know everything and get input from people who are actually doing the job. the intimidation tactics do not make for a successful work environment.
