    Pros

    1. Great mission
    2. Benefits are very good.

    Cons

    1. Poor Management: Management tends to fire those who voice opposition. Look at the turnover data for the Network office...team Ops, team Enrollment...etc.

    2. Mostly young, inexperienced staff. The poor management is directly reflective of inexperienced staff.

    3. Unrealistic work expectations with no additional compensation or concern for staff well being. In a "no excuses" environment, even being ill with cancer is no excuse for taking a day off.

    4. I cannot stress enough how poor the management of department directors and other senior staff is. My manager was the most unprofessional, unqualified person I had worked with in my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Examine the high turnover rate and be honest about it. There are several directors whose turnover rates for their departments should be analyzed.
