    I have been working at Minnesota School of Business full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loyal employees that really care about the students.

    Cons

    Grew too fast - employees have no connection to corporate office and do not feel valued.

    Advice to Management

    When you have to take things away from employees try giving something...anything back so they feel somewhat recognized and appreciated. Get out to your campuses and meet the people that are fulfilling the dreams of these students.

    Pros

    Rewarding work with students when you have use ethics and morals with the students best interest

    Cons

    poor leadership, poor pay, poor hours, poor benefits, and over worked

    Advice to Management

    If you would not have been so gready you would have had a good thing. Too much PR as titles and promotions were based upon popularity contests not based upon qualifications

    I worked at Minnesota School of Business full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers were wonderful! Liked working with the students to make their educational dreams come true! Education benefit was excellent, free classes, just pay for books.

    Cons

    Upper level management was horrible, they were a bunch of wolves caring only about themselves. The upper level managers that did care were run out or laid off/fired.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance was ok for the most part. They did not have extra hours that were mandatory to work. Company values were a sketchy, it is a family owned/run company, and you can really tell by who is in the upper positions. It was a real compliment if you got hired and didn't know or were related to anyone in the company.


  6. Exceptional campus employees; lack of strategic vision at a corporate level.

    Pros

    Focus on student success; Great team environment; rewarding work; tuition benefits

    Cons

    Corporate level leadership; Compensation lower than competition.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Communicate. Communicate. Think long term instead of short term only. Refocus on your mission.

    Pros

    If you are looking for a cheaper way to go to school. Love teaching and helping students grow.

    Cons

    There is too many loopholes and minor management that interfere with getting certain tasks done in a timely manner. Budget cuts are not handled well due to poor communication.


  8. Challenging, diverse population, culture differs by campus

    I worked at Minnesota School of Business full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    All in all, the employees were great to work with. Some campus facilities were far nicer than others, if possible work for a newer campus.

    Cons

    Time off was not great, long hours for some positions. Lack of support for teaching, students can be difficult to work with due to lack of education or training. Difficult for employers to want to hire students,

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on talent development and appreciation of staff.

    Pros

    Can get a free Master's Degree, Pay is good. Most professors and staff really care about students

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Tuition is far higher than most 4 year Universities. It is a business and admissions counselors are instructed to admit any and all potential students who have $ or can secure a loan - most drop out later with tons of debt. Credits do not transfer to other schools.

    Pros

    Great tuition benefit, fair pay, nice co-workers. Most Instructors genuinely care about their students' success.

    Cons

    Lots of metrics, high turnover. They often take the words "For-Profit" way too literally. Students are more than walking financial aid dollars to boost your stock price. VERY expensive tuition!!!! Morale is often low as Reps are constantly pressured to enroll students. Every action is heavily monitored: phone calls, scheduled, conducted, applied, packaged, etc. It is VERY easy to get written up and terminated quickly. Not much in terms of job stability.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you have kids doesn't mean they're qualified to run a company. A "we-care" philosophy sounds great, but you often seem to only "care" about having multiple homes that are paid for by below-average students.


  11. Average company to work for

    Pros

    Great tuition benefit and training opportunities.

    Cons

    Salaries are some of the industry lowest, compared to other for profit colleges. It's very clear that if the select few upper and middle level management, you will advance. Some managers only have their position because corporate employees like them, and they are making 15K more than others in the same position.

    Advice to Management

    Help grow your company with the people that work hard, not the most "popular" employees.
