    I worked at Brown Mackie College full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was competitive and the opportunity to help students who struggled in the past graduate with certificates.

    Cons

    Long hours and pressure to meet goals and enrollment numbers were stressful. I saw a lot of unethical things being done to promote enrollment that I morally did not agree with. Some of the staff did not care about the students but were more so concerned with taking federal aid from students.

    I love working with people, specially when it comes to helping other, this job gave me the satisfaction to help students determine their funds eligibility, so in a way I was able to help them get closer to their education goal.

    Cons

    They need to make sure they hire people that love to work with other people so that they can make sure they will fulfill their job duties to have the best customer service towards their customers.

    I have been working at Brown Mackie College full-time

    Pros

    There is a real and present need to help students who have found a home at Brown Mackie College. The school is not for everyone. But for those whom it serves, I am grateful to help them reach their goal. AF's must be mindful of this.

    The campus is in the teach-out phase. What a shame that is!
