The middle management only cares about numbers and recruiting students, even if they are not interested in the programs

Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

ProsThere are a good deal of good people with whom I've developed lasting friendships.
ADA's have the potential to make a lot of money.

ConsIt's sales driven, which does not necessarily lend itself to education
The sales and education sides do not work well together
The ADA's are only worried about numbers and recruiting rather than retention
Middle management is often a joke
Leads are given to favorite ADA's
They are also given to top performing ADA's, which makes it difficult for new or others ADA's to perform well

Advice to Senior ManagementRespect the ADA's and the organization by fostering an environment that supports education, retaining students and the promotion of completing a full degree rather than getting people to apply and complete one class.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lack of Structure, organization and efficiencies - causing employees to work longer and harder instead of smarter
