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

Pros

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

Cons

Disconnect 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 ManagementAdvice

WGU 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!

    Pros

    WGU is changing the face of higher education and it's exciting to be part of the growth. Work hours are flexible and being able to work from home is fantastic.

    Due to growth, there is a lot of change. You have to be able to cope with constant change and a fast paced environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If we refer someone for employment, then at least offer an interview. This demonstrates that you value our judgement.
