No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Ashford University full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good Co-workers. I've met some great people who ultimately move on from Ashford once they get their MBA etc or with the economy returning.

Cons

For the most part the management staff is a bunch of shady mortgage brokers that went bust in the recession. If your manager or director as been there 5 plus years then chances are they are in the good ol' boys club when there was a matrix and enrolled anything with a pulse. They bought their accreditation...

Advice to Management

They need to restructure their management and fire many mid/upper level people.
