    I have been working at Chamberlain University full-time

    Pros

    Most faculty at the North Brunswick site are hard and conscientious workers. They support one another and are dedicated to their students

    Cons

    Management is inept and not at all concerned about faculty satisfaction. They will work you into the ground and continue to ask for more. There is a culture of fear and multiple people have either left or been fired.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach about Chamberlain Care

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

    Pros

    Pros are very flexible work schedule, good work/life balance and pay

    Cons

    Complete and utter chaos, everything changes...assignments, classes, etc. No central source of information means people store everything on their flash drives so every source of info is different. Communication is none existent so if you class is moved you won't know until you get there in the morning.

    Advice to Management

    Get things under control, have a clear leadership presence and direction.

    I worked at Chamberlain University (More than a year)

    Pros

    - some of the people in the office were very laid back and genuinely nice
    - a couple of coworkers were landing their first job and being paid more than at other companies
    - depending on your supervisor you could have remote work or good hours with flexibility

    Cons

    - focus on revenue through expansion only
    - extremely unorganized and very decentralized between office and campuses
    - endless silo environments
    - endless issues with data
    - multiple occasions of company licensing same software numerous times, wasting money on same license. Silo environment kept sharing of best practices or communications horrible
    - some people in managerial or director roles were/are absolutely venomous with falsa façades
    - some coworkers are super lazy and do the bare minimum to stay employed, often creating complications that are too convoluted to be seen and fixed by others, just so they maintain relevance by regularly being "the person that fixes problems"
    - treatment of certain employees and pushing out people with integrity and character
    - you had to inform your supervisor of interest in moving to a new department for career advancement, and that was taken against you

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to cheat the system and gain advantages. Daniel Hamburger was let go already and the problems persist. Susan G is absolutely not the right leader. Get better people in sr management, renew the workforce.
