    Pros

    Only Friday work days are for nursing faculty.

  6. "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.

    Pros

    Pros are really limited, basically your paycheck twice a month. I can't really add any more pros because they're non existent

    Cons

    There are entirely too many cons to list, but I'll give it a try. Poor management, unethical practices, unstable, raggedy, uneducated managers..

    Advice to Management

    Managers do not take advice well. It basically goes in one ear and out the other. They should pray more and complain less.

    I worked at Education Affiliates (More than a year)

    Pros

    The amount of PTO was generous. 17 days pro-rated for the year.

    Cons

    I was constantly asked to work on Federal Holidays, the exceptions being Christmas Day and Thanksgiving Day. Black Friday, Labor Day, Memorial Day, even New Year's Day were all fair game to come in and work. My manager would constantly ask us to come in on our days off or change our time to come in with very little notice (typically less than a day). Can't make plans for Saturday because I never knew when I was going to be told I "needed" to come in on Friday at 3pm or later.
    Policies are not well known, even to the people who supposedly wrote them, there are a lot of disagreements among the directors about student policies. A lot of in-group fighting between departments. There's no HR department, just the campus president, who makes HR decisions.
    Health benefits are decent, but expensive. If you have a family, expect to pay $250 every pay period for health insurance. That's on top of the co-pays and the many procedures the insurance company will weasel out of paying. Life insurance and dental insurance are on par with most other companies. 401k doesn't company match, might as well have your own IRA through your bank.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is good

    Cons

    NO bonus, pay increase. Little training and no communication. Only care about the money figure.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more, actually train.

    Pros

    Helping people reach life goals is rewarding

    Cons

    Raises only come with promotions which are rare. If you don't like what you are being offered don't come, because you will be at that rate for a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your workers that go above and beyond do and whose work shows it.
