    Pros

    A good place to go if you want to get some experience in higher education, and use that experience to leave (or get fired) and move on to a job at a REAL college instead of a for-profit, make-believe college. There are some genuinely good people who work here that mean well and try to help students, but they are hamstrung by poor leadership and worse policies.

    Cons

    Management is clueless when it comes to education and motivated by their own little agendas and profits, not the benefit of the students. Every level of management is a continuous revolving door, except a few key people who are running it like it's their own private playground. Anyone who speaks out even a little about poor executive decisions is accused of insubordination and usually terminated. The college has made HUGE profits year-in and year-out and claims it can't afford pay raises. Well, someone's making money hand-over-fist. It isn't the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that a college is not a supermarket, and when you short-change employees and students you hurt yourself in the long run. Quit running the college based on short-term profits and trying to fool accreditation into thinking you're legit, and really work to improve the academic experience.
