    I worked at Keiser University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great friendly co-workers and calm environment. It has activities that also involve the staff and I think that was a good choice. The programs are great if you are thinking about returning to school. I believe is has room to grow into something great with the right people.

    Cons

    Nothing important, only a few good choices for lunch. The leadership is great but can use alittle work. Just understand what you are getting into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up the purse strings for good help in the departments. Create more activities from the student just to keep morale up and eveyones spirits high.

    Pros

    It is a great way to get experience straight out of college

    Cons

    Directors care only about enrollment
    They lie to students - everyone gets accepted
    Supervisors are childish - they have favorites, date employees and gets u in trouble if u don't play their game
    Basically u need to enroll a certain amount of student every Start
    If u don't they question your talk time dials or say u " not creating a sense of urgency" .... It's all a game

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get training

    Pros

    The wonderful students.... who work so hard to succeed . Their determination is my motivation to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    The owners do not respect anyone!!! They lead by fear and the campuses look like slum villages. This is in addition to NO work-life balance, no training, and no help from Regional because, they don't know their jobs. The higher ups talk with a fork tongue. You can't trust anyone at the Regional or Corporate levels. This company is toooooooooo top heavy!!!!!! They make staff members work more than one positions with no additional pay (labor law issues). I have never seen a company such as this. I've been in proprietary education for over 20 years and it is so sad to see that money is the motivator and not the student success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate and Regional please go back for leadership training. Then maybe you will learn how to treat your staff, especially at the campus level. They are the ones that keep you in that private jet......... Not to mention your student who keep everyone employed. Get rid of the registration and enrollment fees. 98% of the students can't afford to pay it at your for-profit schools. Stop making the students pay on their loans while in school when it is not required just so your 90/10 can look good. Oh!! And stop charging them late fees!!!!!! You only end up cutting them a refund check at the end of their program anyway. That makes no sense!!!!!!! You go after a certain demographic and then treat them like crap. Your students are your blessing so treat them like they count not just a dollar sign.

    I worked at Keiser University full-time

    Pros

    Okay salary... But I also live alone and don't have many expenses. I did work with some good people however.

    Cons

    Terrible management. From the president down to the directors at the campus. It's all about the numbers and money with them. They don't care about the students or their future. There was constant micromanagement and screaming when things didn't go exactly how the DOA wanted. They also made a point to play recordings of bad phone conversations in front of everyone else which is so embarrassing and demoralizing. Just a terrible terrible place. I ended up with anxiety and depression as a result of working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's no hope in offering advice. Nothing has ever been done in the past. All of the people in charge are friends with one another so if you file a complaint about one of them, you just end up in the dog house and they make your life miserable.

    Pros

    Benefits are okay. There are some good people that work there, but the negative definitely outweighs the positive.

    Cons

    There are good employees, but the supervisor behaves like a child. The department feels like you're back in high school or worse. The manager does not train accordingly; therefore, Some people are overworked, and others do not have any work at all. Favoritism is obvious, and micromanagement is an understatement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training. Lots of management training.

    I have been working at Keiser University full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    good salaries once you have been here, if you really care about students like many of us do, then it is really rewarding to see them graduate or when they tell you about the new job opportunity they just landed, vacation time is decent, benefits are great (free for a single person after 3 years but they are not cheap for a family)

    Cons

    -biggest downfall to me is there is very little room for job growth and opportunity. while the raises are almost always good and much better than other companies out there, I still have the same title after being there almost 10 years so many aspects of the job are getting boring as there is not new challenges.
    -sometimes I think the regionals have been so far out of the every day stuff that they don't realize times have changed. a lot of the basics are the same but what worked 30 years ago may not work the same now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    give employees more room to grow and you could probably have a great team of people that sticks around for a long time
    please get some new people for the radio commercials....borrrrring.....
    -managers to include regionals - get employee input of those who are in the trenches everyday and get feedback before rolling some things out.
