Current Employee - Adjunct Faculty in Denver, CO

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

Pros

Organized Online Learning system set up.

Cons

-Doesn't offer long time faculty advancement or professional development.
-Makes faculty follow strict grading schedule with unrealistic deadlines.
-Doesn't offer good faculty an increase in pay after years of service.
-Places too many students in one class.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer payment incentives for years of service. Offer online adjuncts an opportunity for growth.

    Pros

    Great people, my manager was one of the few managers that cares and respected me.

    Cons

    They fire a lot of people and promote idiots. Increase in Daley ends at 1 year and 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retention should be your top priority. Instead you lose your good employees and have to retrain new hires. This is not a successful practice.

    Current Employee - Student Services Advisor in Upland, CA

    I have been working at Westwood College full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Compensation was pretty good for a for-profit school. And as long as you work there, you get to go to school there for free, minus book fees.

    Cons

    Even if you're doing a good job and being productive, if your manager or the president of the campus are tired of you, or seeing you everyday, you might as well start looking elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just do your job (well) and don't have biased opinions of your employees based on things outside of their workload.
