Balanced

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsWork from home allows the cost avoidance of fuel and business dress. Also, since their is no commute, you have an hour or so to spend on activities you want to do.

ConsCompensation based on degree requirements is probably low; however, when you take into consideration the amount of effort needed to perform at a satisfactory level it all balances out.

    Overwork and Underpaid / One Lie After Another / Incompetent Middle Management

    Student Mentor (Current Employee)
    Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at Western Governors University


    Pros: The freedom and flexibility to work from home for 50 to 60 hours… Cons: The pay is low, almost 15% lower than that of pay for most community college faculty, but without summers off. Evaluations based on wild guesses… Advice to Senior Management: Go to business school. Get an education in management before trying it as a live experiment. Great design went into creating the school… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
