The team I was on had expecptional leadership from team leads up through my divisional manager. Great relationships and wish I could have continued working for much longer.

Cons

During shifts in the managment communications to lower level employees seemed to lack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Ashford University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -Short commute since I live in North county San Diego.
    -Most of my co-workers were pretty cool and everybody got along.
    -The office was pretty nice, so was the break room area.

    Cons

    -High pressure sales, even though they constantly drill into you that you are NOT a sales rep; it was absolutely schizophrenic.
    -MAJOR favoritism.
    -The job was mind-numbingly dull; calling 150-200 people every day, reading the same script over and over, to people who don't want to talk to you.
    -You're only as good as your last sale. Even if you are (or were) consistently meeting your quota, as soon as you have a bad week, management is on your back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the place not such a thankless job.

    I worked at Ashford University

    Pros

    Laid back
    Autonomy depending on your manager
    Fun people you work with
    You have the ability to move up in the organization

    Cons

    Stressful environment
    If you don't complete your commitments i.e, your budget you will recieve consequences
    They expect a lot from you that is out of your control sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent
    When you say you are going to make changes, beta them before you do
    Make sure you really care about your employees
