    I worked at Jones International University

    Pros

    Convenient location
    Covered parking
    Near light rail

    Cons

    Inexperienced, incapable children in senior "leadership"
    No long term vision
    Constant re-shifting of organizational strategy and goals
    Dishonest managers
    No interest in employee professional development
    Financially unstable
    High turnover rate
    Spends $10 make $1- that is no way to run a business!
    Lowered entrance standards to increase student body. Most can hardly read or write

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is too egotistical to even consider taking advice, so why would I waste my time? JIU has been going downhill for some time now, and now it is picking up speed at an alarming rate. The place is on life support- pull the plug already!

    Pros

    Gym at HG
    Bagels on Friday
    Casual Friday
    Decent PTO

    Cons

    Hostile work environment
    Lack of office cohesion
    Micromanagement
    Poor training
    Inexperienced supervisors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurturing your employees is important in keeping them. Yes, the turnover rate is high, but why do you think that is? If you cared just as much about those helping make the profit as those directly contributing to your profit, you'd probably have happier employees.

    the people that worked here were great and the pay was pretty competitive.

    Pros

    The pay was fairly good even for non-degreed people. I have a degree so mine was better than many. They do not give overtime unless classes are about to start.

    Cons

    This was a real cult, not just a corporate culture! I was constantly bullied and abused by management and colleagues all day. Everyone male and female made sexual advances and if you do not go along, you will not advance! If you are not of the religious affiliation of the majority, they develop a problem with you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to run employees life 24/7. Of course now 90% of the company was terminated at the beginning of September with no warning.

    Pros

    In hindsight there was nothing positive besides getting paid.

    Cons

    This place is a scam and don't get sucked in. It should be shut down. You will be conned about the claims the founder had a 'dream' about education for all. It's all about scamming the government for financial aid money from government. They will use and abuse you and take prescious years of your life. Soul suckers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire them all. From recent years seems the ship is sinking. With those kinds of layoffs the school can't function and some government agent should step in. No different than all the other For Profits under investigation. Probably worse because they are not publicly traded and flying under the radar to get away with more fraud.

    Pros

    The people are great as they all cling together in their misery

    Cons

    You can get an occurrence if you login one minute past their ridiculous set times. I am now working at a great company that offers flex time....no pressure if you need to call in if your child is sick or gets sick during your work day...they have no respect for employees...you get reports each hour of your time on the phone this job SUCKS!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop selling your horrible programs to uneducated, underprivileged students who can barely read and comprehend...The managers are so awful and they micro manage down to the minute...this is the absolutely worse place in Denver to work...I know someone who cries on the way home from work every night...ugghh...RUN if you are thinking about working here....and RUN FAST in the opposite direction!! Glenn Jones should be ashamed!!
