Pros

Working with faculty who care and interacting with students.

Cons

Too structured. Too many responsibilities to be completed in a 50 hour work week.

Advice to Management

Obtain competent skills based leadership that stays in place for more than 5 years to provide stability and planning.

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers, that all quit about the same time I did. Those employees that tried to actually help the students were told not to be of any assistance.

    Cons

    They are corrupt, unethical, immoral, no concern for students' welfare. Their main concern was always the stock price. Upper management was give shares of stock during the IPO at $18 per share value, which has now fallen to $3.

    Advice to Management

    How do you look in the mirror each day? Oh yea, it's your paychecks. Too bad you can't say the same for your stock price.

    Pros

    Benefits, nice AR's, experience that helped me transtion to another University, nice opportunity for someone right out of college. Other than that you can forget about stability

    Cons

    Management uses scare tactics, they have a tiering system (top, middle, bottom) If your on bottom tier it is almost impossible to get out. You will be making 300+ dials a day, harassing students 3 times a day, chasing them to get into school, using tactics such as "Oh I thought you didn't want to stay at McDonalds the rest of your life" Hours are the worst. The employee morale is down especially at South, it is like a black hole. 95% of employees are unhappy

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of upper management. I literally could not stand working there because of the way they ran the business. You get held accountable if a student doesn't want to go to class. Upper management needs to be held accountable for high turnover!
