    Good and sincere people who truly desire to help improve lives for their students.

    I have been working at Education Affiliates part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I like the way this school assigns the classes to the instructors in my department. The instructor becomes very fluent in their subject quickly because you teach the same classes over and over. It's one thing to work in the field, but to teach it is a different level.
    I like that my program director is very supportive, the Dean is very approachable and so is the President. Both make themselves available and are very involved in school activities always trying to make it a fun place for the students so they want to be in school after the excitement had worn off.
    The current higher ups (dean and president) understand 30 extra minutes isn't enough time to prepare for classes and have figured out a way to work with that.
    Background checks have started happening with all the students before signing on to our department which is bringing in better quality students who stay, instead of drop out after a week. It might be a lower start number, but they care about the the bottom line and actually want to succeed. So I'll take better quality every day.

    Cons

    I would love for the days to be a little longer so the students (and I)could have a real lunch time. It is difficult getting copies and class material together for the second class in just 30min, and some other departments dont even have that. You are onkt allowed an extra 30min beyond the time you're in class for planning and preparing, but they want you in class 10min before it starts to "greet the students as they arrive." Well, I will only work for free for so many hours a day, so corporate needs to realize this.
    Admissions needs to educate theirself on the programs they are filling so they can help students who don't have a clue find a place where they fit instead of just suggesting they go in a program that isn't that big to fill a seat.
    Admissions also needs to not push a student into a different program they knew they wanted to attend by telling them there is no future in a certain area and they can't make any money as a specific professional or they won't be successful when they are done with that program.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what it takes to be a successful instructor and allow realistic payroll.
    Educate admissions on how to place a student properly and not give personal opinions to push them into a program they won't be happy with.
    When students a consistent bullies to other students, teachers and staff they need to be punished in a way that would make them stop so they can prepare for the real world. If staff and students don't feel safe coming to work or school the good ones won't come.

  10. "Clinical Faculty"

    I have been working at Education Affiliates part-time

    Pros

    Educating the students and helping them become successful in their dental hygiene technical chairside skills. Very rewarding working with each of them through failures to successes!

    Cons

    Director is not engaged with faculty, and plays favoritism. The politics within the dental hygiene department are like high school. She openly mocks the students and their abilities. She gossips about fellow staff and department faculty. This program would be so much more successful if it had a professional director.

    Advice to Management

    Re evaluate the present director and the bad reputation she is giving your institution. Dental hygiene schools are aware of her name and share very negative feelings and experiences with her.
