Fun place to work but not to begin a career

Financial Services Advisor (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

ProsPeople are really friendly and supportive of each other. Management in the finance department also recognize work/life balance. There is also overtime available. There's also a huge emphasis on team support and teamwork. There are also company bonding events that management is insistent on keeping despite the increasing size of the company which is definitely great for company morale.

ConsSalary and benefits are slightly below average. Your first year there, you only receive one week of vacation and one week of sick days. It's a bit disorganized because of its rapid growth. It is a for profit university so it operates solely on the basis of numbers. I don't like that education is being sold in this way for a profit. The quality of the education and students are definitely forsaken for recruiting as many students as possible regardless of how unsuitable prospective students were to enter college. A large percentage of students should have been advised to take remedial classes before enrolling. Students who did not own computers or were mentally impaired were also recruited for online programs. Student recruitment did not seem to always be performed ethically.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecause policies keep changing, it's difficult to give advice to students and members in other departments. The school needs to have a uniform set of policies and procedures available to all employees so that there is a document of authority to turn to. Often times, information is passed by word of mouth or by forwarding outdated emails which leads to confusion and misunderstanding between personnel and student.
