    Good place to work

    Admission Counselor (Current Employee)
    Waterbury, CT

    Prosgreat management and everyone here are friendly. The work environment is overall very fun. The company is growing, lots of new hire.

    Consworking some late nights if you want the weekends off. Working for the online department makes you feel detached from campus life sometimes

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what your doing. It works so dont change that. When you begin to micro manage, it will change the flow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place to Start Your Career!

    Residence Director (Current Employee)
    Waterbury, CT

    ProsYou get the opportunity to get your hands into as many different aspects of higher education as you could imagine. There are friendly faces wherever you go. The president is an amazing human being and I am honored to work for him. Plenty of sick time/PTO. Tons of one-on-one student interaction on main campus.

    ConsBeing a for-profit institution, it's all about the numbers. Some, especially those in upper management, tend to forget about the importance of the individual student and focus more on the total number, thus sacrificing the quality of time for those students already present at the university.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that retaining students is just as, if not more, important than bringing in the new. Keeping the current students happy is how the money is made and how a good reputation is built. Invest in the now!

    Good people, reasonable expectations

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome good administrators that are concerned with their employees. Less bureaucracy than public universities. With a few glaring exceptions, good quality academics are offered that offer credibility to the institution.

    ConsThe for-profit aspect of the university has some drawbacks. Admissions is reportedly pretty shady in terms of how they meet quotas and treat employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPredatory banking practices led to the financial meltdown; for-profit universities have a duty to society to avoid a college loan crisis. Your admissions department should have an independent ethics board.
