I worked at Neumont University

Pros

The location as a student of Neumont was great as a student.
The hours were also great as a student.
The compensation plan was very fair and would have been almost worth my time at the higher level classes.

Cons

Hardly anyone came in for tutoring.
Grading sucks unless you like to do it.
I could find a better paying job in the field that was just as flexible with the time and the location.
The hours became harder to come by in the end due to money restrictions.
It was only a part time job so there were no benefits to speak of.
I also did not like the time tracker, as it was ineffective in reporting my hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

nothing really to say here.

    I have been working at Neumont University

    Pros

    *Great networking with well named companies (ie, IBM, Microsoft, Google, REI systems)
    *Start programming day one.
    *Actual group project experience
    *Real Internship projects for the last three quarters
    *Great Order Activities to allow the student to release some stress and have fun (Order names: Behind The Screen, Game Shark Order, The Game Gurus)
    *Get your Bachelors degree in two and a half years instead of four.

    Cons

    *High stress levels.
    *High work load.
    *Some classes will be in "beta phase" which means a lower chance of passing classes.
    *No longer have specialized teachers teaching what they are specialized in.
    *Will have constant schedule issues and can get behind on graduating easily.
    *You are limited to the type of laptop you are allowed to use at Neumont University
    *Neumont University does not focus on C++ or any other languages except C# and Java. (They have recently explored Objective C, but only in small doses)
    *Neumont University does not focus on Databases. They only provide two classes, which only exposes you to MSSQL.
    *Tutoring is no longer specialized and now generalized. Which means it's hard to find help from tutors for specific subjects.
    *Quarter system has now been split into sprints. Which means you only have five weeks instead of ten to learn the same amount of information. This causes information to be lost within the cracks and just allows the student to be exposed to the language instead of actually learning it.
    *The online courses are awful. They currently have "Sets and Probabilities", among other math classes as online courses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some classes should not be on the sprint system. It feels like Neumont University is now trying to produce cookie cutter programmers instead of quality programmers.

    Neumont University needs to branch out to other languages other than C# and Java.

    Please keep the specialized teachers teaching what they are specialized in. Allow the students to get what they are paying for - "Quality Knowledge".

    If you are going to have a "Beta Phase" class, give the students a fair chance to pass the class instead of failing the majority of them because the beta phase failed.

    I worked at Neumont University full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You get a pay check. You are surrounded by computer geeks.

    Cons

    No raises. No ability to grown. No career advancement. You will be terminated for 'no cause'. President is an arrogant bully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you deserve. Drive employees to the point of death. Hope you burn in h e double tooth picks.
