No opinion of CEO

Pros

fun environment, lots of training, talented individuals, good benefits, good recognition programs, departments work well together- lots of internal customer service

Cons

not appreciated, work your butt off, make sure to negotiate a good salary when you start- if not, your screwed, nationally accredited school- has a bad reputation which is no fault of your own, but you are left defending the school all the time to students, parents and other professionals/companies

Advice to Management

work on cleaning up the bad online reviews and get regional accreditation

    Pros

    Good Chairperson support (they are the direct managers over adjunct faculty). Good Student Advisor support. Flexible schedule. This is the Online school. Many of the adult learners are amazing.

    Cons

    No raises for adjunct faculty. No vacations for adjunct faculty with any substitute teaching. There used to be substitute teachers for online but this service was taken away. If you travel you have to take a computer with you and work late at night while vacationing with others during the day. There is a lack of technical support for problems with student Webspace and the Adobe Connect rooms. The Adobe Connect rooms for live meetings disconnect sharing frequently and disconnect all together at least one time during meetings. Instructors used to have a lot more input with respect to the class designs and which classes were taught and added to the curriculum.

    Advice to Management

    Make technical support a priority for online students and faculty. Get the instructors support for substitute teachers, money to invest in faculty development and the process to receive this less complicated, look at fair raises for instructors, keep class sizes to a reasonable and accountable size (not to expect over 25 students to a class this new new policy) and make it easier for students to enter the classes at start time by getting financial aid issues or any other issues that keep them from getting into classes right away, cleared up well in advance of the class start date.
