Pros

Consistent rules, straightforward policies, I work online which is a big plus. The university has come a long way in making sure the students are really enrolled to go to school, instead of just to collect financial aid, which used to be a problem a few years ago.

Cons

There just isn't as much work as there used to be. I usually teach two classes at a time now, with a few breaks through the year.

Advice to Management

More personal, individual connections with supervisors, would go a long way for morale.

    Pros

    Great training in various industries (Healthcare, education, business, technology, social sciences, etc), higher ed, fin aid, accreditation, etc. Employees bond over the shared dissent they have for the upper management.

    Cons

    Underpaid workforce. A lot of responsibility for a little bit of money. Clueless, incompetent management who fail to take responsibility. Favors Mormon believers.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain your workforce throughout the madness, incompetency, company sinking, pay them more! And treat them better.


  2. Stay away at all costs!

    Pros

    It's a job Great Benefits Good starting/entry salary

    Cons

    This is absolutely the WORST company I have ever worked for!!! Backstabbing, gossip, lying-and that's from management!! Micromanaging to the 100th power: you not only clock in and out, you have to clock out (AUX) each and every single time you step away from your desk. If you go to the bathroom, to the break room, to the copy room, or even to ask a question to a coworker in another cubicle you better be sure to AUX in and out or you're in trouble. They could care less about students - it's all about enrollments. They claim it's not a sales job because of government regulations, but trust that Enrollment is nothing but hardcore sales and cold calls.

    Advice to Management

    Just get a grip and find a new profession. stop the "it's all about the students" mumbo jumbo when we all know it's all about sales; not enrollments, but sales.
