Pros

Berkeley College is all about servicing students. I've worked here for 10 years and the professionalism, the high quality of work produced and the amazing entrepreneurial spirit make going to work a pleasure every day. The College has been highly ranked in the Best Places to Work in both New Jersey and New York for 10 years straight. We work hard and play hard and are appreciated for what we do.

Cons

Communication could be better. I’d like to know more about what’s happening on the other campuses.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!!

    Pros

    Work only 35/week for salaried employees. 12 days PTO- 4 carryover each year, desk job and college fairs, meet a lot of HS students. Dept buys lunch at least twice a month. Front office will favor seasoned employees to interview more qualified students, Ability to have a "Wing It" attitude, make up deadline to support urgency to apply for college. Offer Financial Aid Support and ideas, Qualify students for scholarships. 2-3 yearly get together- awesome food. Direct students to various majors. Excellent telemarketing opportunity. Work from home/ remote ability. Promotion is based on net numbers. Highly sales oriented. Most HS students are naive

    Cons

    For Profit Organization. Advised to take work home, No team work or team building. Admissions Directors will ask you to misrepresent information. NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. Huge gap/miscommunication between Financial Aid and Admissions dept New students are re-directed to majors they are not interested, cause BC offers it. Apprx 40% freshman leave after 6-9 months. Apprx 36% graduation rate. Students complain about classes being cancelled because of low enrollment rate. Not all campus offers all majors. 85% students accepted that apply- Highly expensive for low standard education. Not competitive. Policies are changing every month

    Advice to Management

    In business for 80+ years but still lacks every component to be an industry leader. Have 2-3 locations instead for 8, Under promise and over deliver and not the opposite.
