    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looking at the company as a whole, from the limited perpestive that I have, I am very satisfied with my job overall. You do have the ability to help many, but the job can be very stressful and hard to handle at times. Management doesn't have too much knowledge on the daily opperations which can be frustrating, but that is overcome for the most part by the fact that they immediate leadership is very compotent. This position takes a special kind of person to be able to handle some moderate phone abuse from students, but you are compensated well by frequent company outings, a good benefits package, and a job that doesn't require all too much experience just a good personality and an ability to learn. One month paid training sets you up for success for the most part, but I would like to see more of our advisors promoted to senior level finance operations (for those that are fitting, and their are some) who are more aware of the day to day operations more so than the good overall managers that may have limited experinece in the field they are over looking.

    Pros

    The salaries are competitive and fair.

    The management is only concerned with numbers at all costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should seek training in organization development and realize that an employee can only be as good as the system.
