I have been working at Ashford University as a contractor (More than 5 years)

Pros

You have a lot of freedom in your work. They are not always hovering over you and micromanaging.

Cons

They have you work on contract only, and then they do not give you consistent work. The University also has a policy that they will not give reviews, or referral letters.

Advice to Management

You need to value your employees. I know the students are the money makers, but stop catering to them at the detriment of your employees.

    I have been working at Ashford University as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company is organized, has set parameters on what is expected and how to solve issues from technical to course content.

    Contracts are not guaranteed. Some months you get an assignment, some months you don't.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ashford University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a good place to find an entry level job that pays well.

    Cons

    It pays well because it's an awful job. If you can tolerate being yelled at by all day unintelligent students who are going to school so they can live off of a stipend and then go home without feeling defeated then this would be an okay job for you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support. Don't combine positions without training people. Stand up for your employees.
