    I have been working at Argosy University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great potential after the buyout goes through. Culture is improving but pay is stagnant.

    Cons

    Not flexible at all for work hours. Computers, printers, etc are old and maintained on a shoestring budget. Training is poor. Very secretive and non-inclusive culture.

    Advice to Management

    Changing culture is a holistic endeavor and starts with leadership style. Having jeans day or funny hat day is not what defined a company's culture.

    I worked at Argosy University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Family/work balance was very good and campus leadership made sure that they and their staff had this balance

    Cons

    Corporate management was a revolving door and put campus under undue stress. Lack of marketing support did not position the school well for recruiting success. It was always about the metrics however we never had the resources to hit them.
