I have been working at Ashford University as a contractor for 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.

    I have been working at Ashford University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Opportunity to learn and improve communication skills. Young fun demographic of coworkers.

    Cons

    High stress, pressure to meet monthly minimum number of student enrollments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make degrees more affordable. A $50,000 online bachelor's degree can be difficult to justify.
