Most Commented

  • Work From Home(15 comments)

    Work from home is an option but frowned upon in this position

  • Health Insurance(11 comments)

    It was an option and while a bit expensive there are a lot of people on it using it.

  • 401K Plan(6 comments)

    Some Matching. It's Not Alot But Better Than Nothing.

Affordable medical/dental/vision insurance. Work from home two days a week and telecommute during inclement weather.

Salary Is Very Low But Health Insurance And 401K Are Pretty Good.

Excellent benefits offerings to full time employees! The benefits package is competitive and affordable.

no benefits are provided to part-time employees

Current Employee

401 Match as well as the health benefits are good. They removed pet insurance which isn't a dealbreaker, but was nice to have. Work from Home is always a bonus

Current Faculty in Tampa, Florida

Decent 401k plan but the pay for full time faculty is a joke

Dec 23, 2018
Current Employee

18 days vacation (after 3 yrs), 401 K, work from home 1 day/week, health, vision, dental, basic life, etc.

Former Admissions Representative in Charles Town, West Virginia

Easy to sign up for benefits and the HR team is very receptive answering questions and making sure things are still provided to employees. The insurance benefits are also pretty fair if you're willing to pay more.

The best benefit is free tuition for any classes a full time staff member takes. The worst is that the health plan is extremely pricey.
