I worked at Argosy University full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The newest campus desired to offer opportunities to applicants who might not get into other graduate programs. The campus hired excellent faculty, interesting and diverse students, ability to develop one's own syllabus and teaching style, lots of ability to interact with students.

Cons

The campus was driving the car while building it. The campus president pushed large numbers of admissions to get his bonuses knowing many students were unprepared for such a diificult educational process. The higher up management disallowed the individual campus to decide when it was ready to apply for APA approval.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide guidelines and support for new campuses to acquire APA approval and offer bonuses for longevity of students & fculty not admission numbers.

    I worked at Argosy University part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The working conditions were good - they made an effort to orient new P/T instructors. They also seemed to appreciate instructors. The compensation was quite competitive. They also had profit sharing options even for P/T instructors.

    Cons

    At the time they seemed to be catching up with instructional technology. Like many online or private for profit universities, their advising and admissions staff seemed underpaid and a bit overwhelmed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better integration of support services for staff and instructors is needed.
