I worked at Ashford University part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pros include working on your own time (telecommute), good training on the software, responsive IT dept. It was an easy way to make some extra money, but was also very time consuming to grade so many assignments.

Cons

The hiring process took months and months. I had to submit many writing samples and jump through too many hoops before they would hire me. The pay was decent, but seemed a bit low for the amount of experience you needed to have for the position.

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For the most part, the managers are really cool people and will not through you under the bus if you mess up. The pay use to be a lot better. You can move up relatively easy if you just listen to what others have done before you.

    Cons

    People who are pissed off at Ashford probably hated their manager, worked here when people got insane raises every 6 months, but that no longer exists and now they are pissed. Yes, it pretty much is telemarketing, but its does not take a brain to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth, you make a ton.
