    I worked at Capitol Technology University part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Plenty of on-campus positions for students to apply for.
    - If you've never had a job it's a great place to start. Everyone wants you to succeed.
    - All the offices are close to each other so if you need something it's not far.
    - Small campus so you'll get to know everyone and everyone is extremely friendly (even on their worst days)

    Cons

    - Remote. It's about a ten minute bike ride to the nearest store however there are plenty of carryouts to order from.
    - Felt like the upper management was completely separate from the office workers. They just sort of showed up and gave orders every now and then (this isn't technically a con, just an observation)

    Advice to Management

    Team building. Have a faculty and staff team building day or some sort of active event to get people out of their offices.

    I worked at Capitol Technology University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. At one time, we had Fridays off in the summer and worked a condensed work week. That was nice.
    Awesome group of students. You really couldn't ask for a more dedicated bunch of people.
    Great programs that are likely to get a student hired. An easy sell.

    Cons

    The leadership here was woefully terrible. They prided themselves on not advertising. That could have been the reason for low enrollment, which they complained about. We had numerous meetings about how to spread the word about Capitol's programs and NONE of the suggestions were ever used, no matter how inexpensive (or free!) they were.

    The pay is low here. Staring out here is one thing, but don't expect to get rich. Get experience and get out.

    Advice to Management

    The economy has changed. Recruit for the economy you are in instead of what you'd like it to be. Students don't know about Capitol because no one wants to advertise it. The return on investment would be amazing if Capitol would only spend a little money.
    Also, pay people better. Invest in employees and it will pay off in the long run.

    Pros

    If you want a "comfy" job that doesn't take too much brain juice to get through the day, this is the place for you. If you're already retired, or if you're entry level, go for it!

    Cons

    I can't tell people enough to stay away from this place. The name of the game here is nepotism, and it shows the second you step in the door - no one under the age of 35 works here and likes it. There are NO policies and procedures in place, HR is nonexistent, management is incompetent, uneducated, and absolutely in their own little world. You will never hear a "thank you" and you'll never get paid anywhere near what you're worth. Colleagues are both lazy and crazy. You wouldn't get on the Titanic knowing it was going down, would you???

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Capitol College needs to consider a complete overhaul of their personnel, especially in the human resources department, or just sell the place to the highest bidder. But, in the short term, actually firing people who refuse to do their jobs and considering SOME kind of compensation system that is appropriate for the area would go a long way. Or, consider hiring vice presidents who have earned more than a high school diploma. Just sayin'.

    Pros

    It is similar to a great big family, since the campus is small and contained. You eventually get to know everybody or as many people as you need to know in your surroundings.

    Cons

    Not too many employers (outside of Maryland, at least) know of its existence.

    Advice to Management

    To make sure that Help Desk Staff gets operational integrated headphones. After all, this their main mean of communicating with professors and students in virtual classes. Sometimes, workers get stuck with old and broken headsets.

    I have been working at Capitol Technology University full-time

    Pros

    It's just a check until you find something better.

    Cons

    Capitol is a revolving door for employees of color- especially black women. The "executives" get VP/ Sr VP titles with bachelor degrees and a general lack of concern for any of the students of color at a school that well is over 60% minority, The "others" can only get "assistant director" titles with Master's degrees and PhD's. It's a mess. The board and president generally couldn't care less about anything other than pretending things are ok with the school's enrollment, lack of student success and their ability to pay the $25k+ tuition.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to reflect the student body in diversity. Period.Everything is done with eyes behind white blinders.

    Pros

    Tremendously close knit family style culture. Great care is taken from senior leadership down on involving themselves in each employees life at a personal and professional level.

    Cons

    Huge gap between respective executives in involvement and aptitude. While some are all-in on the Capital initiates and university brand, others are 100% asleep at the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Be aggressive. Be bold. For some, continue rocking it out. To others... retire.

    I have been working at Capitol Technology University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Business casual dress
    Closes early for most holidays

    Cons

    This place is horrible and getting worse everyday. The executive suite is completely incompetent and pit their employees against those in other departments in order to get more "power." There is a lot of turn over.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone in the executive suite, hire a competent team of leaders that genuinely have some concern about their place of business.
