    Pros

    Helping students try to better themselves

    Cons

    Greed and excess at owner and upper management level makes this school a for profit corporation for the benefit of a few, funded by PELL aid. Again, google the article and you will see.

    Real teachers--look elsewhere. Keiser University is a joke

    I have been working at Keiser University

    Pros

    Close to home. That's about it.

    Cons

    So many, where do I start? If you are a real academic avoid working for this school. The "Deans" who have little on no competence, run each site. These people have no idea of how higher education works. They do not have advanced degrees. I had to submit a lesson plan--an insulting joke. College professors don't do lesson plans--we are experts in our field. Lesson plans are for elementary ed, you fools. Faculty offices are like telemarketing cubical. Where do you meet with a student at? They fully don't understand how it works. No respect, unhappy employees, very poor technology (and they teach tech). They are the joke of the entire state. I should have known better. AVOID

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some competent deans. Look around, see how higher ed is done. Invest in technology. Shameful

    I have been working at Keiser University full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Health Insurance cost is cut in half after one year

    Cons

    This "school" more like a corporation is a horrid place to work they hardly give time off even when the students are gone for weeks on end. they have people work christmas eve and other holidays.
     Most of the staff have been here for over 5+ years and have never received raises, but the tuition keeps going up.
    You have to take out a loan to receive a "free" education here. and then sign your soul to them for 6+ years
    Technology is out of date and doesn't work.
    Processes are out of date, and not cost effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people.
    Look for ways to trim costs, and create more cost effective processes so that education doesn't have to cost so much.

    Pros

    Good opportunity to help others and make a positive impression on young and not so young students.

    Cons

    Ok pay, hectic and sales mentality, poor management with no regards for your personal life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When employees feel appreciated they perform better, become more family oriented and be more supportive and less of an obstacle.
