Decent (or above) salary, great co-workers, current problems and layoffs in process

Senior Financial Aid Advisor (Current Employee) Hoffman Estates, IL

ProsLove my co-workers! Great work-life balance and focus. Good salary, especially for young adults first entering workforce; which is extremely common. Upper management make selves open and available to all and are. Yearly employee surveys, with followup of results, action plans, goals, and progress. Continual focus to attempt to increase employee morale and recognition. Structured monthly one-to-one employee-manager meetings and manager involvement of "next step" for advancement.

ConsRecent schools closing announcements (23), 900 laid off and hundreds more imminent. Too many management, leaders, and layers (directors upon directors). Advancements not always given to most qualified; many 'chosen' ones climb the ladder extremely quickly. Disconnect among departments, especially between campuses and corporate. Regulatory and policies not always consistent with what is actually done.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou say you care about students and employees, talk integrity and excellence, but in reality, it's only talk. Senior management say to come to them; they listen and say will do something about, but never do. You have many quality systems and departments in place, but lack accountability and ensurance of the completion. Metrics in place to emphasize productivity, but these systems cause quality of work to be compromised.

A lot of people wanted to advance or work extra but management was more concerned… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
