Pros

Strayer offers some corporate perks. The benefits package is nothing to complain about. Every year you work they also offer around a 3% raise to adjust for the cost of inflation.

Cons

Pending how many students attend your campus, the workload can be very demanding. Everyday is a consistent struggle to get work done on a tight timeline while constantly being interrupted by phone calls, students coming on campus for assistance, and lots of emails. Overtime is not an option so you are expected to get a great deal work done under a unjustified time constraint.

Strayer is also consistently changing policy which makes it very hard to remember and keep up with the numerous major changes that occur sometimes weekly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management can make or break your work experience and environment. The Director of the campus sets the bar for expectations. If you are not meeting those expectations then you will quickly find out what you are doing wrong. There are goals set everyday which are sometimes very unrealistic, but there still is reprimanding for not meeting them.

    Pros

    - Some departments create and support their own culture,
    - Many talented and smart individuals working to further education for people that truly want to learn.

    Cons

    - Difficult to advance if you're not a "chosen" employee, or do not have the right pedigree.
    - Culture is non-existent; management does not support their message.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that the people make the organization. Create a culture that inspires and welcomes new ideas as opposed to an organization of "yes" people.
