Advice to Management

Obviously, some of the issues at AGI were beyond management's control and were a product of government legislation bringing student lending into the government. The company is trying to reinvent itself which makes it a scary place to work for employees. As much as they can, it would be helpful for management to be open and honest about impending lay-offs and restructuring.

    I worked at Access Group full-time

    Pros

    The salary, benefits and hours are decent.

    Cons

    At a glance, Access Group appears to have interesting programs in financial education, political advocacy, grants and professional development for higher education professionals. However, the organization isn't achieving meaningful outcomes in any of these areas, making them pretty much irrelevant. They haven't let go of their corporate identity, including their top-down management style, meaningless jargon and outdated tactics that don't make any sense and aren't aligned with any measurable goals. No one is really fooled by their claims to be a "nonprofit."
