I have been working at Argosy University full-time

Pros

Great people in the company at a ground level. Students and Health Science programs are very good.

Cons

Very top heavy company. Focusing on getting students to only take online courses, when students are adamantly against this. Only look at the money side of things, not the students.

    I worked at Argosy University as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility, the opportunity to work closely with students who really need the help.

    Cons

    I worked for Argosy for over three years. A dedicated instructor, I soon found there was little or no opportunity for advancement. Instead, they cut adjunct salaries by 30 percent and added additional job responsibilities. While the hours are flexible, instructors cannot allow more than 48 hours to pass without logging in to the classroom. As a result, instructors have to work more or less everyday. For me, years went by without a single day off (excepting major holidays). While I received very good feedback from students, I did hear complaints about the system as a whole. Many were disappointed with both the quality of education and administrative support. It is clear from my experience that the powers that be at Argosy care much more about the financial bottom line than they do about their students or employees. At the end of my time at Argosy, I began to call my job "my community service project". Given the hours spent, I ended up making about $8 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on education. Attend to your students and pay your instructors a decent salary. Set realistic expectations for instructors.
