Pros

Overall independence to pursue teaching. Position offers good flexibility as far as fitting in with other responsibilities within your life. As an instructor I had a good feeling about my ability to make a positive impact in students' lives. For many students who have a poor education background, Brown Mackie does offer perhaps the only hope of success and getting on the path toward a college degree.

Cons

Environment very, no make that "extremely," exploitive of students. From the overpriced books students are required to purchase from the "school bookstore" to the high cost of tuition, Brown Mackie has a system in place to more-or-less stick it to students at every turn. The college is a well-oiled machine set-up to maximize its profit largely on the backs of the poor. As a faculty member working within this exploitive system, somehow you have to make peace with it while you are there.

Advice to Management

Get an ethical backbone!

    I have been working at Brown Mackie College part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, interesting (in a positive way) people to work with

    Cons

    Too many changes in a short amount of time relating to structure. Not a good means for stable, life-long employment as people get cut left and right. Sometimes overnight. Privacy policies leave many employees in an unknown state when it comes to major issues that should be discussed. Nearly impossible room for growth w/o a degree

    Advice to Management

    Remember how to human. Remember how far compassion, passion, and PROPER guidance can create long term employees. Many policies make it difficult to inform students of things they should be aware of, which in the end causes some disgruntled attention that could easily be avoided.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Brown Mackie College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You gain valuable experience learning sales techniques and skills to hit your goals. A decent first job right out of college.

    Cons

    The school doesn't have the best reputation, which can make selling an education there difficult. Admissions is a very high turnover department, and the phone is your lifeline. You are not encouraged to use any other methods or recruiting, which accounts for the high burnout. Also, You frequently seek out people to enroll who are not a good fit for higher education just to make your numbers.

    Advice to Management

    None - it is what it is.
