    Pros

    Great people to work with (those not in management)

    Cons

    Management is drinking koolaid from 10-15 years ago and not willing to listen to new ideas. Most have been there so long (10-20 years) that they can’t see any other options other than just keeping doing what they are doing.

    I have been working at American Intercontinental University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing Co-workers. I don't have to jump through hoops to use my own PTO as it was intended.

    Cons

    Unrealistic Unattainable goals. I often feel manipulated. Glaring gaps between admissions operations management and what our actual job consists of. Less than 10% of ALL advisors in the division can successfully meet the required metrics.

    I worked at American Intercontinental University part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    classes are typically consistent each term

    Cons

    I was awarded several awards by the institution for effective teaching. Then not offered any classes reason- I was following the provided rubric to assess students and hold them accountable to meeting the standards. The manager stated that not enough students in my class were passing therefore even though I was highly effective in the classroom more should be passing regardless of the actual content of their work. I asked them to provide examples of grading they thought was not fair based on the rubric and the stated there were none they could find but more needed to pass. Student quality was poor typically only 30% of a class turned in any work at all (making it really hard to have 65% Or more of the class pass)
