    Pros

    Fast-paced, celebratory, enthusiastic environment. Great pay once you hit the Associate Director level.

    Cons

    Very goal-driven with a high pressure sales feel. Lots of tension around hitting numbers,

    Advice to Management

    Keep your fears, concerns and issues surrounding the goals to yourselves, and focus on keeping the staff motivated and pumped up...goal stress encorages lying and job dissatisfaction

    Pros

    Few..if any. None come to mind. A smattering of excellent instructors with good credentials and very real concerns for their classes.

    Cons

    A complete farce, this is pay-for-your-diploma walking / talking. Administration has NO concern for students or faculty other than $$. Students know that if they complain to Deans, grades will be raised. a complete sham of a school. No academic integrity at all and works the government and all possible avenues to get $$$ for students. Deans and middle management is a politburo mentality following a completely misguided mission.

    Advice to Management

    Leave. The fish rots from the head....and the head doesn't seem to care.

    Pros

    Depends which campus you work at completely. Check with current employees if you can. Employment is a pro and income, even if you are under paid.

    Cons

    This place is Ok, but,it is really a for profit company posing as a non-profit. Read the New York times article about this place. The top people are bilking our Government's financial aid for military and other students for a VERY overpriced "education". They actually pay lobbyists to influence regulators so they can keep their money train flowing as long as possible. They make millions, but staff are underpaid compared to other universities and you barely get any days off and they make you use a time clock. This place is ok to get experience or if you need a job, but it is disappointing that it is 100% about profit and millions for the owner with little regard for students, faculty, staff or ethics.

    Advice to Management

    How much is enough? How many yachts, planes and homes does anybody really need? Destroying fellow Citizens lives with overpriced debt is shameful and frankly, unpatriotic. May the lord have mercy on your selfish soul.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good benefits, somewhat friendly

    Cons

    Late hours, loads of paperwork, no time to process, high expectations that cannot be met, does not follow through on certain details. Brown-nosing is a must to get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more FAOs. Learn about disabilities and what they can do to a working individual, don't place such high expectations on employees.

    Pros

    Work from home all the time.

    Cons

    Unreal expectations from both students and faculty. No real time off, even with the one week twice a year. Grading and getting another class ready does not make a true vacation. Four week format to learn 3 to 4 chapters weekly of material is unrealistic, but will keep Financial Aid rolling in. Sad university go to a state university and get a real education.

    Advice to Management

    Return emails and let faculty know who's the boss this week.

    Pros

    Very Military style of Management. They remind you every day you are lucky to have a job. After a while you are brainwashed and scared to leave. Raises are 1% or 2% if you get one at all.
    They let you sleep at your desk. They don’t give raises but they feed you all the pizza you can handle provided that you work every weekend and Holiday. You need no education to succeed, they will educate you there way. You job will be only doing one thing and you will not be trained or used for anything outside of what they want you to do. You will grow old and not grow. If you are ambitious, then you will be written up for not following your one task and going off course. The medical benefits however you cant use them because you work nights, weekends and Every Holiday. No such thing as a 3 day weekend, Christmas or Thanksgiving. They keep you till the final hour.

    Cons

    . If you don’t come in, they fire you. Management is a "Boys Club" and the men are pigs. if you are not related, young naïve and can be exploited by brainwashing please apply, this will be a learning experience. Admissions are told to enroll anyone with a pulse. They even log in for students so they get credit for the enrollment to meet numbers and the students are charged! Management knows this and turns a blind eye! Financial Aid is told to forge financial aid documents using paint and Photoshop. Instructors jobs are threated if they don’t pass there students regardless if they show up or not. It is a diploma Mill for sure. They even enrolled people with no high school diploma! All is illegal, they have paid fines. Be prepared They will work you on Holidays, weekends, nights and you will have no life. Don't call in sick or you will be written up, even if you have the time to take. No Vacations of any kind. They have to go through 3 layers of Management and always are declined regardless of the circumstances, i.e.; wedding, honeymoon, graduations.. Forget it!!! They don't care about you!!! Only there bottom line!

    Advice to Management

    Close the School. You all have no conscience for what you do to the public! You all need jail time.
