Pros

Nice working environment with a brand new state of the art home office building. Overall nice friendly co-workers to work around. Decent benefits and compensation in comparison to the industry.

Cons

High turnover of academic advisors who are the "sales" force. New federal regulations prohibit sales quotas for the industry however the company has found a loophole and continues to set sales quotas disguised as performance ratings.If an advisor fails to meet their quota they are "fired". 300%+ turnover annually. Upward mobility based more on who likes who and not who is more capable. Numerous instances of the more qualified and talented being passed over for promotion so that much less capable coworkers can be advanced. This contributes to the high turnover in the professional ranks. Company seems to not be able to make up it's mind what direction it wants to go. Constant changes every week to work processes.

Advice to Management

Try harder to retain employees and don't just throw them away when they don't meet a quota. You are disrupting too many peoples lives when you do this.
