Good culture, but CYA Managers

Dean (Former Employee)

ProsGreat culture, people, and travel opportunities

ConsDo not like not following "the norm" or differing opinions. Not open to new ideas. Still stuck in the 90's for technology. Information and decisions too centralized.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore open dialogue with employees and allow hearing alternative points of view without being considered "a problem".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    More about the money than the students.

    Admissions Advisor (Former Employee)

    I worked at National American University full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Exceptional work environment when numbers are good. Culture Club is a great way to keep employees happy and blind to how similar the job is… Cons: Claims they are there to "change people's lives", they are really about numbers and how many students they can get in under the wire. Very… Advice to Senior Management: Change for the sake of change is unnecessary, use more common sense. If something works, do not change it. Management is afraid to tell it… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
