I worked at Argosy University

Pros

Admissions Department is always full of fun, friendly, outgoing people
Free Education
Exposure to highly intellectual education staff

Cons

Executive Management (From Corporate Execs to Campus Presidents) has high turn over which causes inconsistent decision making and policies.
Admissions personnel are not highly regarded although they are the face of the university and held to sometimes unrealistic numbers (yes it is a sales position although they tread very carefully on not classifying it as so).
Chaotic environment most of the time, very loosely organized.
Long hours - little regard for work/life balance.
Not much room for advancement
With the exception of a couple of favored employees, don't expect any care to whether employees are retained. It is understood that turn over is high.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the admissions, student services and finance staff being that they interact with your "consumer" the student each day. Place more of a value on employee retention on all levels (associate and execs) in reducing turn over.
