    Good team of hard working people who care about each other.

    I worked at Fortis College part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers were very helpful and friendly. There was never a shortage of supplies to fulfill the work tasks. Management staff delegated tasks in a respectful manner.

    Cons

    Workload was high and compensation was low. The way tasks were assigned made the workload seem more hectic than it should've been.

    Advice to Management

    If salary compensation matched the workload, the turnover rate may not be so high. Assigning one person to answering phones while the other is responsible for data entry might prove better efficiency.

    I have been working at Fortis College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I receive a paycheck. That's it. There's 401K but company does not match. There's average health insurance.

    Cons

    No raises. No employee motivation. Upper management clueless how to run an Online program. Spreadsheet and micro management type of environment. No recognition. Upper management doesn't know your name or position. No raises. I would not recommend a friend to work here. Top managers clueless how to run a business or motivate employees. Same routine everyday. Get enrollments or else.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with more respect. Conduct more training. Provide raises. Match 401K. Recognize employees who are doing well.

    Pros

    they pay a portion of employee health coverage which is becoming less and less

    Cons

    No raises now for 3 years!!!! But they continue to post huge prodits

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. You're expecting them to do more and more duties while you cut positions but give no raises or incentives to reward them. We can read the profit and loss statements. We know the owners/shareholders/partners continue to receive large returns. What about those on the front lines every day? Want to keep good employees??? Pay them!

    Pros

    You get to help and guide students to reach career goals. The pay is not bad for part time.

    Cons

    The administrative staff is horrible. They are not organized and basically are just looking for bodies to stand in front of the class. They don't care about the students or staff, just about getting the money for the students.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the dead weight management. Woodlawn, Md campus
