Pros

A diverse work-force of all ages, situated in the heart of san jose - close to restaurants/cafes and the city's attractions. The department I worked in was a high performing and supportive team, where innovation and creativity was encouraged! I dynamic and exciting place to work for professionals passionate about supporting students in a higher education setting.

Cons

Low pay compared with other Silicon Valley industries(even compared to other educational institutions like k-12 and community colleges). Within my department there was no where to advance and grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create more incentives and career path-ways to keep and grow talent - not just at the leadership level, but across all areas.

    Pros

    It is in downtown San Jose where many local restaurants are present. There are many students which give a nice change of scenery compared the typical office company.

    Cons

    The administration is lacking in many different ways, as many students can attest to this. There does not seem to be much speed in getting things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please improve the way administration is handled such as deadlines, fees, and form submissions. Processing goes by very slowly and student life is already so stressful.
