    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great culture with terrific people who support and seem to genuinely care about each another. I have not worked at a company where people are so willing to help each other. The mission of supporting higher education is personally gratifying and people have conviction in the good of what customers are doing which helps breed this culture. The company does a good job of supporting employees and creating an environment that...

    Cons

    The industry (higher education) as a whole can tend to be late adopters, so the technology is not always on the cutting edge, although it is impactful. Because the industry is changing, Ellucian is having to adapt too, which sometimes leads to turnover of good people who have been at the company for a while. But it’s the right thing to do and management is doing well in managing through changes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path – new management that has been brought in the past couple of year have been good additions. Now is the time to let consistency take hold so the company can stay focused a clear direction and execute.

    You must have the ability to work in white space, I understand this type of environment isn’t for everyone.

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    With the most recent changes in Sr Executive leadership, Ellucian clearly paved the way for a bright future. Top down Ellucian is a very supportive organization and with the current growth, there plenty of opportunities to move up, or expand on your current role by presenting new ideas to your leadership.

    Cons

    Fast growth often creates redundancies across certain roles, an overhaul of customer facing roles and responsibilities would reset this.

    Advice to Management

    Fast growth often creates redundancies across certain roles, an overhaul of customer facing roles and responsibilities would reset this, and also create new efficiencies, as well as a clearer path for our customers when it comes down to interacting with Ellucian

    I have been working at Ellucian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The culture is great and the team I am on is leading the way when it comes to positioning Eullcian in the marketplace. We offer great products that solve many of the issues higher ed faces today. It is great working for a company that is making a difference and helping make for a great student experience.

    Cons

    A lot of remote workers. We have a big office and only a few teams seem to come in daily. Some of the more tenured folks tend to fight change rather than embarrassing it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course, we have been waiting for these changes. The outlook is good as we move into 2019.

    We offer great products that solve many of the issues that are faced in higher education today. This company has created an environment that is collaborative and supportive.
