Lack of leadership

Assistant Director of Admissions (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsGet to work with a lot of creative, fun people.
Get to help people with education

ConsI was at AIS for 15 months, and in that time we had three school presidents, two HR directors (the second one quit right after I left), and all leadership in my department turned over. Among the workers in my dept, there was 100% turnover in that time. We also received many mixed messages about how to do the admissions role. On one hand, we were told that it's "the right student in the right program at the right time." On the other hand, we were also told to get them in for an interview "and reel them in." Also, the 2nd HR manager told me that this wasn't a job to have if you liked work/life balance.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop micro-managing and trust your employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
