    Pros

    Co-workers were all great, benefits were good at the start but have since declined

    I have been working at Argosy University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Argosy University is extremely compliant to all rules and regulations. Students are treated with the upmost request and admiration. A lot of opportunities to advance your career and better yourself.

    Cons

    Constant change. High turnover in VP and higher positions therefore because of the ever changing world of for profit education. Very little, if any, recognition or praise.

    Advice to Management

    Create a five year plan and stick to it regardless of the changes in for profit education.

    Pros

    Tuition Reimbursement and Tuition Assistance for attending internal and external programs if you have future educational plans. They are owned by a corporation that acquired several educational facilities nationwide so lots of educational career choices to choose from.

    Disorganized, not customer (student) friendly. Do not value their employees as highly as they should. Need to be more people centered.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on employee needs and employee job satisfaction. Provide customer service training for all departments, not just admissions.

    "Caring Staff, Disconnected Faculty"

    Pros

    Support Staff and Services Departments work very hard to keep students successful and happy. Students that are at risk of not succeeding, having poor attendance, or needing academic support are identified by student services, not the faculty teaching them. Faculty has an attitude of, "if they don't show up to class it's their own fault." No outreach efforts are made on their part. The outreach to the students to offer assistance is made by support staff, which has much less weight.

    Cons

    Staff is not encouraged to explore opportunities to advance or transition to other departments that may be an even better fit for them, personally. Directors have actually prevented such career moves in "horse trading" behind the scenes.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being best friends in EC meetings. Tackle areas needing major improvement: Faculty not held accountable, program chairs who don't know their own curriculum, favoritism in multiple departments that results in work not getting done.
