    I have been working at Chamberlain University part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Students, Pay, Work-Life balance, Location, Students

    Cons

    Leadership, Favoritism, Limited Growth Opportunities, Toxic Work Environment

    Advice to Management

    Monitor leadership and campuses more closely. They can make or break a campus. Campus President is rarely on campus. Hires close personal friends and allows them to promote toxicity on the campus without repercussions. Advertises Chamberlain Care, however, it is not embraced by leadership or certain faculty. Faculty brag about close personal relationships with campus leadership, which makes it difficult for students... and staff to have a voice. Campus President is very quick to undermine faculty in order to push own agenda. Campus leadership sabotaged growth within the organization. Terminates staff without cause or any formal action plan. Do not advertise Chamberlain Care if you are not embracing it yourselves. Students are very aware of the negativity on campus and have told others to avoid this campus at all costs. Students have expressed their regret for attending this school. They are very concerned about the turnover for faculty and staff. Only certain Visiting Professors are chosen to work. Was considering full time but based on the culture, would never consider a full time position unless changes are made.

    I have been working at Chamberlain University full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good for growth, professional development programs, helps you get certification, supports ongoing education. Flexible schedule, deans seem to want to do a good job for both students and faculty. they support you when they have medical problems or family difficulty, good benefits. Students come first. Chamberlain care is more than a poster.

    Cons

    Fast pace is rough on students. There is division in the different departments and different groups of people, you can feel it. The faculty team has the usual drama, clicks. Things always seen to be broken when you need them.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication is needed all around. It feels like faculty and deans are always in the dark and are the only ones on campus every day actually doing the work.

    Pros

    You have realistic job duties. The job is easy and it's nursing, so the students will get hired.

    Cons

    There's no other job you can do. The senior adviser does the same job.
