    Pros

    Good compensation, benefits, great coworkers. This was the best job I ever had, until the layoffs started.

    Huge lay offs, micromanagement, focus on financial growth of company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Might be a moot point, not sure if they still exist.

    I worked at Everest University Online full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It started out as the best job I've ever had. My Department Head was a great person who cared about her staff and the students.I enjoyed going to work, and was proud of all my students ,especially when they finally got to wear their cap and gown at graduation.

    Cons

    It became more business and numbers, rather than an institution of learning. It wasn't fun anymore. Teachers were being told to pass students that should not have passed , or who we felt were in the wrong program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a great place to learn and work. Granted, the economy was a huge part of the problem, but there should have been more communication between teaching staff and corporate to find a better way of dealing with the situation.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Great Co-Workers
    It was the best job I ever had
    Tuition
    I used to love going to work every day

    Cons

    Departments closing.
    More Corporation than learning institution
    Classes being "taught out"due to low enrollment
    Morale is low due to overwork and fear of more layoffs.
    The company has lost it's heart, people have become numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to listen to employees. Yes, cutomer service is a big part of the job, but if an employee tells you there is a problem ,perhaps you should listen and work towards a solution.
