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

Pros

Ashford University provides extensive training to their new faculty, and they provide a specialist with each instructor so that you have a contact for questions and concerns. Everyone at Ashford has been helpful and supportive.

Cons

I have no complaints. It's a lot to take in at once, but that's the case with any new position. The training period really prepared me, and I'm thankful to have my specialist who helps me with anything that confuses me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None. Thank you for being so encouraging, helpful, and supportive.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Typically good for those new to the work place, new college graduates, or those who lack ambition!

    Pros

    Perks free education, business casual work environment. If you like to work individually without too much interaction from team you have the perfect place.

    Cons

    Not a very welcoming place. No camaraderie within the department, just not an overall pleasant work environment. Feel sorry for new hires that come in, no real direction for them. Questionable business practices, ethics, morals, and values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have a great manager...however, that does not apply for all.. Many lack the proper etiquette, management and leadership skills. My manager is compassionate but only because of their undergraduate experience and internship.
