    Pros

    Great pay and benefits Excellent experience working with students and other departments HR is super responsive and they care about their employees

    Cons

    A lot of turn over created chaos in terms of filling positions. At times they would.hire people just to get the job filled even if they weren't the best candidate for the job. Getting island crazy is a real thing

    Advice to Management

    Advicate for more direct flights on/off the island Bring back free transport to the airport Have more selective hiring practices rather than anxiously filling positions with less than ideal candidates

    I have been working at Ross University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance, benefits, good coworkers, fair reimbursements

    Cons

    Opportunities for growth, poor communication, naive upper level management

    Advice to Management

    Once upon a time Ross University was an excellent place to work, but with much employee relocation, poor communication from the higher ups, little to no room for growth, and a growing "corporate" environment, the university I was once proud to represent has gone the way of other for profit schools. I find myself making phone calls to prospective students, sending an enormous amount of emails, and trying to "sell" the university rather than speak as an admissions professional.

    Great country to work in, laid back life style and no traffic.

    The administration showing the good will, but lacks the vision for the future in my field due to what I call selective ignorance.
