    I have been working at Southern New Hampshire University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The course is already pre designed for you, as your responsibility is to simply facilitate the course. The term goes by very quickly and the workload isn't aggravating.

    Cons

    Only gives you one class at a time.

    Pros

    Great place to work! As a manager I spend a lot of time caring for a team of up to 10 people. It takes time and patience to see employees develop, but SNHU is dedicated to their people.

    Cons

    There are not cons working for SNHU. I work a lot, but can see the worth in working over 40 hours a week.

    Pros

    The pay is excellent for part-time contract work. The processes are very well organized and the people are friendly and professional. They offer a lot of support and the departments work well as teams.

    Cons

    You do not get assignments on a consistent basis. I waited four months between assignments last time.

    Pros

    I imagine it is difficult to find another place to work where your management and colleagues TRULY want you to do the right thing for your students. I appreciate the clarity of the vision and the transparency of the organization with what we are working on and where we're headed. I am supported in my own professional growth and I believe management values my happiness.

    Cons

    Working in an old mill building has its challenges. Parking is tough in a semi-urban setting.

    Pros

    A mission driven organization where students are at the center of everything we do. A supportive culture of transparency, clear accountability, and doing the right thing. People are rewarded for getting the right things done well and for improving the student experience. I love my job!

    Cons

    We move really fast and sometimes execution suffers.

    Advice to Management

    Never forget the importance of listening to your students and those who work directly with students as they will expose opportunity to improve. Keep emphasizing the awareness of impact across the organization. It matters!

    I worked at Southern New Hampshire University part-time

    Pros

    Company values are spot on, and constantly reinforced. Training for my position was very thorough, which I appreciated. Everyone encouraged me to ask questions and to add me on Microsoft 'Link'- a kind of instant messaging system that keeps all the SNHU employees connected. Also was encouraged to speak up if I saw something that could be improved. Management constantly makes changes to improve systems, and communicates this through emails and large live video chats. Lots of enthusiastic support from team leads. Brand values events were also fun!

    Cons

    The ebb and flow of the work- some weeks, if a term had just started or was ending, were very hectic. Other weeks, I didn't have enough projects to work on. But this wasn't a huge problem, because we could plan for it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep supporting your employees' creativity and enthusiasm! It means a lot to know that my ideas are heard and considered.
