Pros

The money, because I got in before they got rid of the matrix. What they pay now is not worth it unless you are DESPERATE!

Cons

Where to begin? The management team has 2 plans for success, potlucks or layoffs. I have been here 4 years and have seen about an equal number of both. Not surprisingly, neither are effective against a imploding for-profit education market. Goals are unrealistic and unattainable ( I say this having hit the goals before through little more than sheer luck and circumstance) the punishments far out weigh the rewards. Did I mention they cut rasies for 2 years and the stock is below 4$ as of this posting? Not exatly what i had imagined during my 4 years of business school.

Advice to Management

Find a cliff....then jump off it.

    Not professional and the management is not invested in the success of staff members

    Pros

    The Human Resource team is helpful and the employee benefits are great. If you are self motivated, they have a lot of great internal training. The company mission and overall goal is easy to commit to.

    Cons

    The management in the location that I worked in is extremely inconsistent. While growing quickly, they promoted to many people to management who were not qualified, but were simply in the right place at the right time. Now they lose good people all the time because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at what your managers actually contribute at your Phoenix office.
