Great Place to Work!

Evaluator (Current Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Western Governors University part-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexibility
Being part of a change in higher education
Working as part of a great team
Independence

ConsThe pay is low for having a Master's, but the job is enjoyable and so flexible and that is important to me.

Advice to Senior ManagementOn the assessment side the management is great. They are very easy to work with, responsive and fair. They trust that you can work and perform independently and give you the freedom to approach your job creatively.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
