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.

    Former Employee - Admissions Operations Coordinator in San Diego, CA

    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.
