I worked at Penn Foster, Inc as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Easy work, good co-workers, remote workplace, started out a good job with plenty of hours but school lost a huge contract and there was not enough work for everyone.

Cons

late paychecks, no chance for advancement, no raises in over four years-I became so bored with work I would try to find extra things to do only to get told not to do "extra work". What job does not want you to go the extra mile?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take better care of your contractors, give them at least partial benefits and direct deposit-sending checks through the mail is just not secure anymore.

    I have been working at Penn Foster, Inc full-time

    Pros

    The people are wonderful, understanding and helpful.

    Cons

    I never thought I would want to leave, power is given to those that abuse it and nothing is done about it. Condescending and belittling has become the norm...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wonderful place to work! Consider who you put in the position of power, some are not able to handle it and are completely condescending to others. The feeling of being part of a team was one that I loved when I started with Penn Foster and as of late I feel more like a slave than part of a team.

    I have been working at Penn Foster, Inc full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, and people that work there are amazing

    Cons

    Low pay, Not everyone is on the same page. Lots of employees who do a lot of talking and walking around rather than working. Not much growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get everyone working on the same page, so it is not so hard to complete projects and other tasks.
