Pros

  1. Managers are very helpful, but students can be difficult

    Pros

    -decent compensation -very supportive program directors -solid curriculum -great colleagues -professional development opportunities

    Cons

    -some classes require a lot of grading -there are (too) many entitled students who make the job less fulfilling -some students try to intimidate or bully instructors for better grades (these students exist everywhere, but they seem to be more prevalent here) -the extension system requires faculty to be responsible for students (and more grading) long after a course has ended, which can result in always having a "shadow" course to teach, in addition to new courses and responsibilities

    Advice to Management

    Be more supportive of faculty and program directors. Senior management seems more interested in retaining students at all costs, even overturning the (valid and fair) decisions of program directors and faculty members at times.

    Pros

    -Good starting pay -Decent benefits -Great growth opportunities

    Cons

    -Job functions can be kind of blurry -Sometimes a little overly bureaucratic for such a dynamic industry

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Apus is a organization with an excellent business model. It seems that I am very lucky to be working at APUS. It would be cool if some of the job titles matched other companies titles (Student Accounts instead of Accounts Receivable).
