Pros

Drexel e-Learning (aka Drexel University Online) is a for profit subsidiary of Drexel University that markets Drexel's online degree programs to adult part-time students. Drexel e-Learning offers better pay, more interesting work that regular university staff positions.

Cons

Small organizations provide limited growth potential.

Advice to Management

Increase tuition reimbursement limit so it will cover 8 graduate classes per year (2 per quarter). Liberalize tuition reimbursement rules so it covers on campus programs and programs at other universities.

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

    Pros

    Drexel's programs in an online format is such a great thing to promote, but Drexel eLearning is a for-profit sales/marketing firm. Benefits are awesome - make sure to go in asking for the highest salary possible.

    Cons

    Senior management thinks their brilliance is the reason that enrollments are growing. not really-bc Drexel is a great school, and esp for business development, they offer discounts to orgs that pay tuition for their employees. Many people in high paying roles have little clue what they are doing (although you may see up to 4 promotions in one year for some managers, for example - there are 4 VP's and less than 80 full-time employees...?), Executive egos are huge, and drive all decision-making. It's only a matter of time before that causes its demise. It is also a caste system, where certain levels aren't allowed to associate with others, but 90%+ of the company is under 40, so this creates a very tense environment where management gossips (a lot). Most employees have to work in a basement with cockroaches spotted every day - it's disgusting.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, since they are the ones making all of the decisions to save money, drive enrollments, and support your six-figure salaries and bonuses. Treat them like you treat yourselves, since a leader is only as good as its team.
