I have been working at Ashford University full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Benefits are nice, they sponsor sports teams so they raffle off tickets a lot which is nice. Great pay and a lot of room for growth. They try to build their employees' leaderships skills even if the employee doesn't plan on staying with the company.

Cons

My position is very micro managed. Literally every second of your day is accounted for and you will get questioned if you have like 5 minutes of time off the phones. People that call in are extremely rude and demeaning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

SSCs need a little more freedom to perform their duties, but overall management seems to care.

    Pros

    Great benefits package from day one, good compensation

    Cons

    Horrifically misrepresented job. This is a hard core, call center, sales environment. Managers screaming down the aisles of cubicles "Get on the phones people"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managing through fear is not a sustainable business model. Get rid of the "Directors" and "Managers" who are threatening people with their jobs on an HOURLY basis. Unprofessional is an understatement.
