Shady

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsEasy 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.

ConsManagers 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 Senior ManagementGet your act together and listen to your employees!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
