    Worst Diploma Mill to work for

    I worked at Ashford University

    Pros

    There is no good reason to work for this "school." There is no amount of money that will be enough to compensate you for the time you will waste with this company.

    Cons

    If you have a graduate degree and are thinking of working for this company, then you need to know that you are expected to work on courses that will require the same amount of hours per week as a full-time job but they will only pay you for 8. They expect you to grade papers every week for over 30 students and leave detailed comments on each one. In addition, you are required to respond to every student in the multiple discussion forums every week. The five week courses are often too intense for the students at this place who are obviously not prepared for college as they can barely spell and write a simple sentence without numerous errors. The company that owns this so-called college is obviously only in it for the financial aid money that they receive from the federal government (hence, the problem with their accreditation). They DO NOT offer live writing support or tutors for their students who so desperately need help. And they expect instructors to put in more work than they are willing to pay for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for the work that you expect instructors to do and be honest when advertising to let people know what to expect working for you!

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great pay for what you do, with 10 paid holidays through out the year plus vacation. Young environment, most buildings have a gym on the premises, with cafeterias.

    Cons

    The company is young ans still transitioning into who they are, they continue to change how they evaluate their employees and what they require from them. There are "unspoken" numbers you have to meet in order to "meet expectations" but there is never clarity on your "numbers"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to focus more on training employees to enroll quality students or the amount of students. Management needs to focus more on retention of current students rather than how many more they can enroll next month.
