    Horrible and Unqualified Leadership

    Financial Aid Counselor (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsBenefits were ok but that was all.

    ConsVery political. Extremely unethical management especially in the financial aid office. It's all about who you know although the leadership are not qualified for the positions. Experienced gender discrimination being the only guy in the office. They do not apply all of the financial aid laws to assist students. If I had the money I would have sued the college. This was an incredible hostile environment and the HR department was useless. I resigned an still was able to collect unemployment because of the evidence I had against the financial aid department. If you end up working there save all the emails. They do not like to be confronted thus they write everything in email. My recommendation stay away.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvise to the council really investigate that the people are in the correct positions and are qualified. Investigate all of the complaints and take a hard look at your leadership.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
