    I have been working at Colorado Technical University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I believe the culture is starting to grow with fun and interesting people, I have personally never had management as relaxed and care free, just make sure you actually work. There are a lot of opportunities for growth and considering I only worked here a year and a half have been promoted should help substantiate that. The company takes care of its employees, and as most things it’s typically the people fired or with...

    Cons

    It has cubicles, which I believe prohibit communication, knock the walls down. But there’s nothing I can do about that except get used to it

    Advice to Management

    Keep being supportive and great

    I worked at Colorado Technical University full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company benefits package like 401K/HSA/NEAP.

    Cons

    Let me give you a quick list of why to stay away: - The people are clicky & uncaring (Had injury & wasn’t asked if I was ok) - All upper mgt are friends uniting (Company hires on referrals not skill) - Mgt here are not leaders but bosses (Won’t collaborate to help; just puts demands) - Environment is becoming stressed (Dictate times you can accept calls) -Expectations are unrealistic for most (Minimum of 8-12 student...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t lead new employees on by stating you’re being methodical about your growth process to remain successful as a firm! When in fact your ridding the quality & individuality from the firm by simply replacing it with quantity (ie referrals). **I’ve worked in this industry long enough to know this company is beginning to sink** Just take the new rates in tuition both Jan & Aug 2019 for example to compensate financially...

      I have been working at Colorado Technical University full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      The pay and a couple of cool people that I’ve met

      Cons

      People want to work hard but lack of training and misleading reps gets around fast. Culture is ”clicky” and upper management can be sneaky

      Advice to Management

      Management needs to be better at being transparent because talking about people behind closed doors with other managers and then being fake with advisors is not cool.

      I have been working at Colorado Technical University full-time

      Pros

      Benefit Package - Vacation and Personal Time pretty good , although health insurance deductibles have gone up in years

      Cons

      Management constantly is changing. Management does not value associates. Anyone who speaks out to change something is targeted. Four months ago, management fired all Team Leads in STudent Advising Department only to rehire " Student Advisor Managers, which is the same position in a different title.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your employees. Engage with them, and try to have some growth plan for associates. At least it will make it look like you care

        I have been working at Colorado Technical University full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Other than the people that I had the opportunity to work with, not much

        Cons

        Students who complained got what they wanted. We gave them credit in areas where they clearly were not competent. Unfortunately, when you would read what they wrote you could tell that they should not be college graduates. The school just wanted to keep them there for the money.
