    I have been working at Post University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly collaborative culture, and a real focus on student support. Post is comprised of a dedicated team of educators who are focused on providing a genuinely student-focused educational experience.

    Cons

    Given that classes are offered year-round, there is virtually no down time during the year. It's a blessing and a curse.

    I worked at Post University full-time (less than an year)

    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.

    I have been working at Post University full-time (more than 3 years)

    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!

    Former Employee - Admissions Counselor/Internet in Waterbury, CT

    I worked at Post University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Initial interview was good. They seemed interested. Hired me within 24 hours. Sent letters of hire and salary agreement along with a firm start date.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? Moved my entire life and resigned a present position to take a job with Post. After major expenses totaling several thousand and signing a lease, the University called the day before I was supposed to start to say the job was no longer available. How does that happen? Now I have no job and I have to move back home. They even hung up the phone when I acted upset. Wouldn't you?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is apparent to me that there is a huge problem with communication at this facility and I became another victim of the lack of professionalism that was afforded to me.
