    Pros

    Market pay for the courses you are scheduled to teach. Provost stands behind their instructors when grade disputes erupt.

    Cons

    No guarantee on whether or not you will be facilitating the courses you are credentialed to teach. You teach one class one month, the next two months, no classes. Sadly, steady employment is a pipe dream.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule six month out in advance all the courses your professors will be teaching. Second, the instructors with great end of year performance reviews need to be working, not waiting in rotation to be given a class every other month. This will assure that the A-players will leave your organization.

    Pros

    The DOA is top notch. He's a great boss and very understanding. He knows the education business inside and out. He worked his way up and he is a great encouraging type manager.

    Cons

    The pay is fair but employees only get paid once a month. At review time little to no raise can be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more than once a month. Communicate changes more effectively. Find a better inusance plan and one that is more affordable for families.

    Pros

    I enjoyed dealing with international students.

    Cons

    They have recently laid off almost their entire staff. Their goals were unattainable because they were unwilling to invest in the marketing to make it happen. Every month they moved the goalposts which creates enormous disorganization. There is no option but to fail miserably. I had done admissions previously and was very successful, so I'm fairly confident the problem had nothing to do with me. There is a colossal failure of senior management to take responsibility for the problems that staff has in getting the job done. Students are angry and rightfully so. They completely changed the class format from traditional semester-based courses to month long classes. All while having NO staff left to implement any changes. It was the worst experience in a working environment I've ever known, and I feel I can tolerate quite a bit! Never would I suggest that a person take a job here.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees. Treat your employees with respect. The people in the trenches KNOW what the problems and hangups are and why your school is not successful, so you would be well served to listen to them if you hope to turn things around. Put students ahead of money and that would change the environment. Provide proper training, set realistic goals, invest in your employees to help them make it happen.

    Pros

    Co workers are friendly but no one stays longer than 6 months.

    Cons

    Senior management is terrible. They take no responsibility and blame their employees. There is no morality there. Working conditions are unbearable - at best this is a sales job.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire someone who knows what they are doing! There are only 3 people who have stayed over 1 year.
