Pros

Get to do things on your own for the most part.

Cons

Company will lay you off with no warning, no problem.

Advice to Management

Go back to school. Ashford is in trouble. You know you're gonna get demoted like all the other Managers just way. Hope you have a back up job lined up because Ashford isn't going to be around much longer with all the trouble they're in.

    Pros

    Lots of training/professional development.
    All kind of awesome benefits (gym, fitness classes, cafeteria, free school).
    Young, lively company.
    Some positions are really easy work.

    Cons

    Admissions is a completely different world with lots of pressure.
    You may wonder if you're doing the right thing for the students.
    Have to deal with morons/unethical people on a near daily basis.
    University is not in a good place right now with WASC denial and lawsuits.
