Work from home

Student Mentor - Faculty (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

ProsWork from home, somewhat flexibility with schedule, benefits are ok, most colleagues are intellectual and academic professionals.

ConsDisconnect with upper management. Pay structure needs to be redone to reflect fair market. Middle management micro-manages too much. Policy and procedures should be in place as a guide not to use to terminate employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementWGU has a great product at a great price and with education in demand pay attention to the little details. The Mentors are capable and good at what they do, don't hinder them with bureaucracy!

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

    Mismanagement has ruined a great opportunity

    Program Development (Former Employee)

    I worked at Western Governors University full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: WGU has an admirable mission that feels good to be a part of. Focusing on student success and ensuring they have degrees that actually mean… Cons: There is a complete lack of management skills in all levels of leadership. Many leaders have had little to no management experience and no experience… Advice to Senior Management: Upper management needs to understand that they are not just a college, they are also a professional business. All leaders need to take classes and… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
