        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - National Consultant Advisor 

          I have been working at American Intercontinental University full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Great pay, friendly management/staff, great benefits.

          Cons

          Cold leads. Almost forcing students to go to school. The population of students they market to bad. Which leads to high drop out rates.

          Advice to Management

          Focus more on coaching. Don't be oblivious to the quality of students we work with. Instead, teach us how convert with the obstacles we face recruiting incompetent, unmotivated, low quality students. Also, instead of marketing to vulnerable students, spend more money on getting the university more exposure to quality leads for sustainable program retention.

          The pay is very good but you will pay with your soul

          Cons

          Racism, Unethical and Unqualified

          Advice to Management

          This place is being run by a circus. starting from the top, John Clown, I mean Kline (Pres) all of the way down. They call it the corporate building but there is nothing corporate about this plantation. Their employees consist of people who have missed the mark in life, the overqualified, under educated for top positions , socially inadequate and millennials. This place will NOT let you advance if you are African American....

          I worked at American Intercontinental University part-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Interesting content - diploma mill

          Cons

          This is high school level content. Criminal Justice has a micro managing program manager that nothing is ever good enough for....feed back has to be lengthy and everything you do is checked....if you push back, they take away your courses. Director let's Program Managers do whatever and could care less about adjuncts, as they maintain many in que to take your place if you don't meet the muster. DO NOT WORK HERE.

          Advice to Management

          Tell your PM's to lay off the adjuncts - let us teach. Do not require constructive feedback that is a page long (if it isn't lengthy, then it isn't good enough and you're deemed a poor instructor).
