Pros

Benefits, 401k, work with some great people, make a lot of good friendships

Cons

DOA's and above are truly horrible human beings. They treat lower level management and staff level like dirt, they have no problem telling you that you are expendable. Admissions department hasn't hit a plan in over a year, yet this gets blamed on everyone but those in charge. If you not part of the "circle of trust/evil" you are thrown to the wolves. Overworked, severely underpaid, no hope of any raises this year, told if you don't like it you can leave. Director of Financial Aid has no degree and doesn't even attempt to take free classes. Male DOA's use position for leverage for sec.

Advice to Management

Stop blaming your underpaid staff level and start making changes in middle and upper management. Get a CEO who is not a crook. Show some respect in quality of education not quantity

    Pros

    Wonderful people to work with. You talk to many different people every day. Good benefits.
    You can also get a free education.

    Cons

    Little chance of advancement, too much micromanagement, employees can feel unappreciated. Little chance for a raise. Most employees are not happy with their jobs here . The lay offs have been heavy and the rules change every day. They expect more and more out of the workers and give little in return. Employees are not encouraged to give input.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanagement, create a pay incentive plan to motivate employees. There's lots of great talent here, incourage more interaction between employees and upper management. Listen to our thoughts. Stop making rules that make employees feel belittled. Give workers better work life balance.
