I have been working at Ashford University as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

You have a lot of freedom in your work. They are not always hovering over you and micromanaging.

Cons

They have you work on contract only, and then they do not give you consistent work. The University also has a policy that they will not give reviews, or referral letters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to value your employees. I know the students are the money makers, but stop catering to them at the detriment of your employees.

    Pros

    Company is organized, has set parameters on what is expected and how to solve issues from technical to course content.

    Cons

    Contracts are not guaranteed. Some months you get an assignment, some months you don't.

    I worked at Ashford University part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing worth mentioning, as the Cons totally outweigh anything positive about this university.

    Cons

    1) no true learning going on in this place - only money-making, which is not apropos to true education
    2) administration blatantly lies to their associate faculty
    3) youth-based administration does not know the value of education - only interested in making money
    4) no instructor authority in the classroom, as this has been removed in deference to student-based authority, which is an unspoken mandate of the administration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop concentrating on making money and start focusing on the true meaning of education! In short, listen to your faculty members - the ones in the classrooms! Get out of the ivory tower of finance and down to the nitty-gritty of teaching!
