I was very optimistic at first, not so much now.

Enrollment Counselor (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

ProsGreat Benefits, PTO, paid for Masters degree. Very flexible schedule and understanding manager. (I got lucky with my Manager) Great co-workers.

ConsNo real chance of moving up unless you are part of the "good ol' boy" group. Even if you meet requirements, have a degree and participate in projects outside of your job description. Call center sales environment that is based solely on numbers, even though they claim they don't. You are expected to convince people to go to school, even if they don't want to. Evaluations are not fair, in the sense that you can be above requirements or below requirements and still get the same raise.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is the luck of the draw on which manager you get. Some managers are awesome, like mine. However some managers are not and so the requirements, write ups, and fires are not equal across the board. Without a base standard that is actually followed this makes it a stressful and an unfair, low moral environment for most.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

They need more resources and better leadership. Stop the culture… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
