    Pros

    While this position operated in a call center environment, the team worked closely together and made for a welcoming and productive environment. I never felt like I couldn't turn to someone for help when I found myself in a tough situation with a student. The HR department is great and really takes care of its employees as far as benefits and resignation. I had to relocate to a different state and was sad to leave such a great team.

    Cons

    Cubicles are a bit too close to one another and at times makes for a noisy atmosphere while you are on the phone trying to speak with a student. However, I've never received complaints from students about having trouble hearing me.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Current Employee - Residence Director in Waterbury, CT

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    Being 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 ManagementAdvice

    Remember 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

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Some 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Predatory 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.
