    Students, academic freedom to a degree

    Pros

    I loved spending time with the students and getting to know them. The teachers there are really sweet and great to talk too. They were really there for the students.

    Cons

    This place is under horrible management. The constantly through admissions staff under the bus to save their own jobs. They were extremely rude and disrespectful. I would never work there again.

    Advice to Management

    You should never use other staffs shortcoming for training, such as, training a new admissions staff member with a phone call made by a member that was still present on the team. It unprofessional and disrespectful.

  3. A place for transition.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, diversity. Tuition reimbursement if you expect to be here two more years after graduation. Great students.

    Cons

    Small campus, ancient computers, no office space for instructor or program coordinators. No room for professional growth. If you are ambitious in life and want to keep growing, this is not the place. If you love to be in your comfort zone and do the job to keep also your managers in their comfort zone, then this is definitely the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks, appreciate the talent. Improve your leadership qualities.

    Pros

    Great camaraderie among staff since we are all in the same boat and have the same opinion of our employer.

    Cons

    Pay stinks
    It's all about the money making and not about producing a quality product
    They require an entrance exam but still make allowances for those students who can't pass it
    They will not let you fail a student - they call it retention but we know it's all about keeping the money coming in
    They do not keep their hiring promises about annual reviews and raises
    They won't let us market our campus and then complain because we have no students applying

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your education staff. We are the ones that really know what is going on and can help you turn things around.

    Pros

    A respectable open-enrollment institution. Has grown much over the years. Honestly and always trying to improve in the face of stiff competition. Has potential. Paychecks always on time.

    Cons

    Erratic, at times ill considered replacement of staff and instructors has too often diminished the quality of SU's education and culture, as stated by students to replaced teachers. Most complaints and occasional disaffection reflect constructive attempts to help, not to tear down. Persons in positions of authority should listen more, and fear less.

    Advice to Management

    Might wish to introduce differentiated pay for quality instructors. Quality is not easily replaceable and market pricing has its downside, as it does not reflect quality, only the numbers game. Might try compacting ten-week terms into one-month intensives, as does some of the competition.

    Pros

    Worst Job Ever! Good news is you get to leave when you are scheduled. No one wants to come early or stay late, so trust you'll be ready to go!

    Cons

    No work/life balance. You work 6 days a week! Mandatory Saturday's or they whine when you can't come. For what?! It's not that serious. Pay is awful and micro management is an understatement! Awful experience.

    Pros

    One of the most positive aspects of this job was to have the freedom to teach students everything I have learned throughout my career.

    Cons

    The challenges at this facility was that managers of the school were lacking leadership.

    Advice to Management

    My Advice to this problem is to create a system where the school can be respected and as competitive as the surrounding colleges.

    Pros

    Pros:
    The work location is ideal (centrally located, near major expressways and bridges). The work environment is clean and the employes and instructors are friendly.

    Cons

    Cons:
    1. Extreme micromanagement
    2. Misleading job description for Admissions Coordinator - this is a sales job. Weekly and monthly enrollment (sales) goals must be achieved. However, this is not mentioned in the job description and it is shunned during training.
    3. Negative reinforcement

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your coordinators. They went through an extensive hiring process so they should not have to endure extreme micromanagement (monitoring calls, messages and meetings). If a coordinator is given breathing room, they will be more confident and feel more comfortable in their job. This translates into a happier coordinator, which is something a prospective student will notice during their interview. In the end, this may result in more enrollments because students are more likely to enroll with a happy coordinator than with a "stressed-out" coordinator.

    Pros

    Wonderful students. They cater lunch on occasion and the dean is great to work with.

    Cons

    This company pays below average and over works salaried employees. The benefits program they use is too high and not worth the money.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so afraid to make changes that need to be made within certain departments. Hold a townhall meeting so students feel free to discuss their concerns.
