Pros

Good colleagues and a class load that is easy to handle

Cons

Five, ten-week quarters. The only time we have off is two weeks at Christmas. Shaky job security - people frequently and suddenly disappear.

Advice to Management

Concentrate more on academics and less on the bottom line - that will follow if students are assured of a solid education.

    Pros

    It is a paycheck with health and dental.

    Cons

    Any person with a student loan can be a Stratford student. School has the lowest retention rate in VA for all colleges, 98% of freshmen never graduate. There are not any professors there who are experts in their fields, the way you see people on news shows from GW, NYU or Georgetown discussing topics in their field of expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Try and mimic a university. What you are doing to students, taking their money knowing they will not graduate, should be a crime. Actually it is.
