Current Employee - Administration in Denver, CO

I have been working at Westwood College full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent salaries, good people at the campus level, good programs, solid faculty

Cons

Top management is too concerned about profits and not about their people. Executive management making bad decisions. Nothing really different about the system as compared to other for profits. No pay increases 2 out of last 3 years and employees told to do more with less.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build a company and profits by investing in your people with training and quit cutting support positions that actually support the campuses.

    I have been working at Westwood College full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I get along great with my team and director.
    Ok pay.
    Good PTO (if you can use it)

    Cons

    Goals are very un practical
    late hours
    AG suit-so enrolling and even 'career orientations' are very difficult...not sure IL campuses will be around in the near future...?
    lots of un ethical tactics have to happen it seems to be successful
    not enough leads-too many people-its like one carcus and 10 voltures. and then the leads get killed by feeling bombarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont let senority take over the newbies. Don't just slap their wrist when you see what they are doing on a policy breaking standpoint.
