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.

Cons

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.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Ashford University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people (co-workers), good sales training, nice benefits.

    Cons

    High pressure sales environment. Inconsistent goals for meeting enrollment objectives. They want you to enroll anybody even if they are not college material.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting too much emphasis on enrolling any student with a pulse and put more emphasis on student support. Focus more on recruiting/enrolling quality students over quantity then you won't have to worry about high dropout rates.
