    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Argosy University full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great people, training provided, salary is appropriate for work load, positive work environment

    Cons

    still working through transition to new ownership. Needs better communication between management and staff. Promotions depend to much on politics.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and faster. There are no secrets and delaying notifying staff of changes is just creating distrust. Promote using skills and ability and stop using managers opinions as a defining factor. Too many people are getting promoted based on personal connections rather than ability

        I worked at Argosy University full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        Accredited Masters and Doctoral programs. Awesome faculty and staff.

        Cons

        Dream Center Educational Holdings, the most recent owners, gave up on the school and pocketed money with the help of the current Ms. DeVoss and others at the Department of Education. The school is now closed. Stay away from WOZU as it is owned by DCEH.

        Advice to Management

        The school closed its doors in April 2019. The end.
