I have been working at Ashford University as a contractor (more than 8 years)

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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to make friends, on-site cafeteria and gym facilities, transferring to other departments is easy. Tuition free education for those who want to take advantage of available programs (quality is questionable though). You can do work and listen to your music at the same time.

    Cons

    Managers acting holier than thou, micromanaging instead of managing, promotion is a joke. Questionable practices in certain departments. Admissions counselors make more money than other staff even though they don't have undergraduate degrees. Company is really numbers-oriented but denies it. School tries to place up to par with (probably cheaper and better quality) online programs from "traditional" campuses but does poor job of actually disclosing WHERE their graduates work (other than Ashford/Bridgepoint).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and listen to your employees!

    Former Employee - Student Advisor in San Diego, CA

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

    Pros

    It's a good place to find an entry level job that pays well.

    Cons

    It pays well because it's an awful job. If you can tolerate being yelled at by all day unintelligent students who are going to school so they can live off of a stipend and then go home without feeling defeated then this would be an okay job for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more support. Don't combine positions without training people. Stand up for your employees.
