Pros

-Good starting pay
-Decent benefits
-Great growth opportunities

Cons

-Job functions can be kind of blurry
-Sometimes a little overly bureaucratic for such a dynamic industry

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing. Apus is a organization with an excellent business model. It seems that I am very lucky to be working at APUS. It would be cool if some of the job titles matched other companies titles (Student Accounts instead of Accounts Receivable).

    I worked at American Public University System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Unfortunately, the best reasons were no longer valid. APUS used to have a strong vision and looked to its faculty to be the key to its success. Recently, it has abandoned what made it successful in the first place.

    Cons

    Henchmen were hired to shake up faculty into quitting, setting them up to be fired, or fall in line with a new system that is not conducive in any way to the best interests of the students.

    Advice to Management

    Return to your roots by making academic-based (rather than bad business-based) decisions. Your faculty are industry leaders with deep academic roots. Look to them for guidance rather than looking to individuals with no real track record of success in academic administration to bully faculty into conforming to a strategy that is fuzzy, at best.
