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

    Pros

    Nothing. There wasn't anything positive about a company that pretends to be student or learning centered but in reality is nothing but a scam artist.

    Cons

    They lie and pretend that they function and act like a real, credible university. It's nothing but a telemarketer calling 1000 people a day and attempting to convince these individuals they need a "degree".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You lost your accredidation, close up and stop embarassing yourself.

    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.
