I have been working at Strayer University full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great benefits, offers tuition assistance, decent pay, many opportunities for growth, values employee moral, great management team at the corporate level, specifically in the financial aid department.

Cons

It's a service base industry so there are a few cases employees have to deal with irate costumers, the hours can be challenging considering that campuses stay open until the evening

    Top down, no employee input. No vacations for full time faculty. Employees terminated and transferred seemingly without basis. Constant changing of systems. High tuition. Unprepared students.

    Potential to be a great place to work, senior leadership makes it just the opposite.

    I worked at Strayer University full-time

    Pros

    Many nice, dedicated, talented people.
    Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Majority of the leadership team is incapable of inspiring and motivating. Many appear to lack basic integrity and human compassion. Consistently reward results with complete disregard for the means by which they were achieved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your talent the way you would like to be treated. Manage out the under-performers and toxic personalities. You are trying to do the right things the wrong way and it's demoralizing and chasing away the very personnel who will get you where you want to be.
