Pros

I have some great co-workers, though they're all jumping ship at record rates.

Cons

No room for growth. Despite some other reviews, pay is only somewhat comparable to other higher ed institutions. People are quitting quickly, yet no rehires so work is piling up. Overwhelming to say the least.

Advice to Management

Your staff can't help your students if they're buried in paperwork continuously. A staff never feeling like they're caught up is NOT GOOD! You will continue to lose really good people who are really good at what they will do. Other companies will value their contributions.

    Pros

    There were times in where you would get some good experience which would help in desktop or help desk situations.

    Cons

    No way of being able to grow in this position other than just with scarce experience would consider going to do a unpaid internship.

    Pros

    Student interaction, great colleagues all over the nation, message and vision is the same throughout the company.

    Cons

    The value of what kind of student we let apply is poor. If they qualify for financial aid they get accepted. Too focused on metrics that count towards the purse strings instead of the whole picture. Layoffs are talked about like its a good thing among management. Will cut back till it hurts and then cut some more. Resources are scarce to do job. Will push the employees who work hard to their limits to compensate for the ones who don't.

    Advice to Management

    Stop. Look. And listen to the heartbeat of everyone working hard for you. It's not just about compliance, admissions and getting to the next short term goal. Remember the big picture of your employees too. Its more than what we can do for students. You are in that equation also. Watch your disconnect between corporate and locations - it's turning into a sharecropper situation.
