Pros

You will make friends for life working at this company. They hire amazing people.

Cons

It's a job with very high demands and this stresses a lot of people out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about the people and less about the numbers. The numbers will come if you care more.

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

    Pros

    good pay, fun people, good coffee, professional work environment, continual training, lots of overtime.

    Cons

    Same thing over and over again, very difficult job, people who were good used shady enrollment techniques that do not reflect the universities value on ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management does a good job of trying to continually train employees. Its a hard job mentally so you just need to be prepared. Its tough to get a job so its definitely a viable choose.

    I worked at Ashford University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    nothing good I can think of that is worth sharing. they like getting rid of people at a drop of the hat

    Cons

    The quotas are unreal and it adds a lot of stress. you can't force people to enroll in their overpriced online bogus classrooms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    find another line of business instead of making people take out loans for a worthless degree
