Negative Outlook

I worked at Argosy University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They have quite a bit of training and development content for employees, if you choose to take advantage of them. Compensation can be good if you are at the Executive Committee level or higher at a campus.

Cons

They are in a significant retraction mode and probably won't recover. Very high stress level for most employees except those at the top, whether campus or HQ. They'll suck the life right out of you, if you allow them.

Advice to Management

Your business model has failed. Move toward a higher quality approach and treat your faculty better.
