    I have been working at American Public University System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management is serious about providing quality education to online students.

    School cares about its staff and treats them as human beings, not (as do some other online schools) pawns to be pushed around on the game board

    Cons

    Sometimes unnecessarily bureaucratic attitude towards policy creation and implementation.

    Unnecessary budget constraints imposed on new product development, textbooks, and software because of policy decisions (not revenues).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less driven by short term cost considerations and focus more on the long term consequences of management decisions.

    I have been working at American Public University System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They offer good compensation in regards to salary, the benefits are amazing. The benefits consist of 401K, free education for employees, wellness programs, fitness center (Charles Town, WV), easy commute, flexible work schedule with some telecommuting options depending on your position. Plus the usual medical, dental, vision. I am sure I am missing something but you get the point.

    Cons

    Every company has it's cons. For this company it is growing pains. In the recession, they have done well and will continue to do well. However, they have to be careful of not growing too fast and too big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, the company is headed in the right direction.
