    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoy that management is open to hearing suggestions. The only suggestion I would make would be to NOT keep people in positions if they aren't the best fit for the department or organization - it's okay to move people around or fire them if need be...

    I have been working at Spencerian College

    Pros

    It was a job, so it's got that going for it. Nothing more I can really say. The location I was at shut down in December and 80 people lost their jobs without warning.

    Cons

    I'm not even sure where to begin. They lure you in with a decent salary and promises of good hours when in reality you work on salary and are basically always there. Sure they offer paid vacation, but good luck finding a time to be able to use it. You're in constant 'black out' and even if you're not, you're so stressed over not meeting your 'goal' that you can't take time off. In June they fired 80 people and kept a skeleton crew until December before they closed the Lexington campus. There is no job security, the benefits are worthless, and you can forget about a work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the terrible upper management. There is no such thing as a 'leader' in this company. And please keep in mind, this is not a school it is a company and their main goal is lining the pockets of self-titled "Chancellor Sullivan" not investing in their students or their future.

    I have been working at Spencerian College full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being able to help students pursue their educational goals is very fulfilling. Seeing people walk across the stage at graduation is the highlight of the job.

    Cons

    Dealing with students can be very difficult. Many do know what there issue is and they want to scream and complain about everything, most are irresponsible and won't admit to their own mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to change with the times. The school is suffering due to lack of leadership and bad management decisions. The old guard needs to go.
