    Pros

    Work in an established online environment, with high standards for academics and an online learning system which is very effective. Excellent quality control of both faculty and students

    Cons

    No raises, expect you to take training at your own cost, no benefits, expect you to buy your own technology and keep it well up to date. You have to grade every week (never seen a college professor in my life who had to grade every single week) and expected to keep up this pace.

    Advice to Management

    You need to learn how to cross the chasm. There is a balance about being a profitable and being academic. This means you can no longer treat your faculty as independent contractors you need to treat them like faculty which means you need to pay to play (e.g. raises, benefits, paid training and paying for higher education for faculty). Otherwise you will never keep up with accreditation and the academic rigors of things like research, publishing, etc. If you have not noticed other "colleges" are becoming "universities" and the accrediting agencies are squeezing out the for profits by actually holding them to academics such as research rather than just teaching. Smell the coffee UOP, you cannot expect faculty to do this for free and sooner or later this is going to bite you in the rear end if it hasn't already.
