I have been working at Graduate School USA full-time for less than a year

Pros

Very collegial environment, the school has an excellent reputation in the federal space

Cons

Little to no direction, no sharing of expectations. No clear explanation AsT whom you're reporting to, lots of guessing about the rules.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spell out your expectations so that you don't expect results that you haven't asked for. It would also be nice to actually communicate with employees.

    I worked at Graduate School USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The mission is first rate, training and educating federal workers and people around the country. Most of the staff are good people, cooperative, friendly, etc.

    Cons

    The extraction of any meaningful data is close to impossible, mostly because only one person controls the report process, which uses legacy systems that were never designed for sophisticated tracking. Some departments continue to defend their specific turf instead of working for the overall good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan to diversify the processes for report generation and update the organization's technology so that it can properly grow.

    I have been working at Graduate School USA full-time

    Pros

    The staff is very hard working and would like to see things succeed.

    Cons

    It was a wonderful training organization when it was controlled by the USDA. It has been losing a million dollars a month for over a year. The top leadership runs the board, and no one seems to care if a business plan exists to improve sales. This is the second college the CEO has allowed to go down the tubes. Don't be sucked in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The president and chief of staff need to be replaced.
