No opinion of CEO

I worked at Davenport University part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Cannot say enough good things about Davenport. Very flexible hours, no drug test, understanding staff, great atmosphere... the list goes on. Also working at school is a great way to boost your career in the field you want to get into.

Cons

I was work-study, so the pay wasn't the best, but that wasn't Davenport's fault.

Advice to Management

Keep on keepin' on. Love ya Heather!

    Pros

    Great team of employees. Everyone works together to get the job don.

    Cons

    It is virtually impossible to work the combined role of Academic Advisor and Financial Aid Counselor that Advisors do. Especially when each Advisor has a team of over 300 students. Leadership has no clue of what goes on in the trenches.

    Advice to Management

    Separate the Advisor positons. You should have Financial Aid Counselors dedicated to working with students and Academic Advisors dedicated to working in the Academic areas only.
