    Former Employee - Course Development Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Former Employee - Course Development Project Manager in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Capella University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility in work environment with work from home perks, flex hours. Caring attitude towards staff with a balance on results. My boss genuinely cared about the outcome of the work and the impact to learners. Over all, nice people, collaborative environment, pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Capella's management does not have a firm grasp on how to hold people accountable. This negatively impacted the higher performers morale and lead to mediocrity. Higher performers are discouraged and tend to look else where after a period of time. Left the position because there was not a career path, dead end position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Readjust context and structure for high performers, this would benefit the bottom line. Focus on relationship and results. Keep the collaborative and people friendly, friendly environment.

    Former Employee - Academic Advisor in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Capella University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job had clear expectations of roles and responsibilities, good training, decent salary. Department attempted to keep job fun during busy times with games, food, etc.

    Cons

    Things changed too often and implementation of changes were not well thought out. Role of advising transitioned from being an advisor to working in call center. Students did not take their education seriously and looked for handouts, made unrealistic demands or felt entitled.
