Pros

Everyone here is very nice. Mostly female employees.

Cons

Perhaps the most disappointing part of working here, besides the disorganization of this newly-opened campus, is the health benefits. They pay 80% for the employee, but 0% for my family. So to insure my family with medical insurance only would be over $1100 a month. If I would have known that, I never would have accepted this job. Please ask about their health benefits before you take a job with them.

Advice to Management

Warn future employees that the health benefits will eat up half their salary.

    Pros

    WCUI tries to be responsive to all student's needs and has great educational/vocational programs in Nursing, MRI, and Ultrasound. WCUI is not like other private schools as its programs are substantial with positive career looks and the school now offers a bachelors degree approved by Arizona and California, the United States Department of Education, and WCUI's national accreditor, ACCSC.

    Cons

    Even while trying, it is difficult to ensure a positive experience for all students.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on students and education and the rest will take care of itself.

    Pros

    The instructors are top-notch and often leaders in their field. Many of the workshops are run by well-respected US licensed physicians and nurse practitioners. Access to many high level clinical externship sites for students. Career services department is more involved than most schools. Management is hands on and well qualified/educated. Company is led by a visionary owner who always puts the students first.

    Cons

    Communication sometimes disorganized across departments and management, which can lead to redundancies in work being done. Some policies are not universal across the different modalities, which can frustrate students.

    Advice to Management

    Less hand-holding and more accountability for students. Nursing dept would benefit from more marketing $ and resources allocation.
