      Pros

      Some wonderful people within the campuses

      Cons

      Leadership is clueless, its like a cult. Family owned- make their own rules. Micromanage everything you do. You are overworked. Ideas - CANT HAVE THEM! There are no growth opportunities. Reviews and Raises come if and when they allow it. They promote individuals that have no business being leaders. It is literally the worst place to ever work. They definitely ruin your confidence and make you think you are ignorant. Harassment, bullying, politics runs ramped in the campuses. If you go to HR you will have a target on your back on top of nothing being done accept an apology. Beware of this place. It is going nowhere unfortunately.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Family owned and operated, ECPI University has proven itself to be an agile, adaptable, and intelligent employer during the global pandemic. "Students First" is our motto, and employees to great pride in going above and beyond to make positive, multi-generational impact in our students' lives. Fast pace, hard work, but we also love what we do and have fun doing it. We continue to grow, which creates multiple lateral and upward mobility opportunities for employees.

      Cons

      With terms starting every 5 weeks, the pace is not for everyone. If, however, you thrive in an entrepreneurial environment, this could be the place for you.

      Student-centered

      Mar 13, 2021 - Program Director 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      ECPI is a University that really puts student needs first. They make sure students are getting skills that prepare them to do well in their first job after graduation.

      Cons

      ECPI does not have a tenure track and it is not a research University, so there are almost no opportunities to do research. It is also a privately owned company and control is tightly held at the headquarters, with little opportunity to advance or grow.
