Great colleagues and students!

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
Ashland, WI

I have been working at Northland College full-time for more than 3 years

ProsDedicated staff and faculty. Beautiful setting and area.

ConsSome growing pains recently, but College is on the rebound and doing much better. Bright future ahead. Small town (7,000) can sometimes feel stifling and/or unwelcoming, but most in community are supportive of the College.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership has been poor/ lacking and micromanagement and lack of transparency continue to affect morale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
