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

Pros

Meeting & helping students develop their educational & career goals.

Cons

Lousy hours and benefits. When they force you to work a holiday (and you only get 5 to start with) it doesn't do much to improve morale.

Advice to Management

Happier employees would make it easier to retain students. They can see what's going on and how you treat your employees. Get out of your ivory tower and see that investment in technology is NOT the same as investing in the people doing the work.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ECPI University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They had some good, professional
    faculties and staff members. However, they disappear
     one by one.

    Cons

    Main campus Management is incompetent, at least.
    Virginia Beach campus president and his
    team had very little to offer to the company
    operations and nothing to the quality of
    student education or employees.

    They had no idea what they are doing
    or how to manage educated people- employees.

    No any form of recognition or appreciation for
    educators. Benefits are minimal. All employees
    ( except corporate) are exploited and overworked.
     Working environment is hostile. Favoritism,
     low moral and luck of ethics are a norm.
    Bullying, harassment, discrimination of minorities,
    women and bias to the Republican Party are obvious.

    About education provided. For profit education is just a
     great way to redirect funds from
    governmental resources to the corporate accounts.
    No real, quality education is provided in the
    super speedy profit generation machine for
    5 weeks of term study and going from" zero to
    Bachelor for 2.5 years". It is inflation of education
     and degrees printing machine.

    The work of this "educational" institution needs
    to be carefully evaluated by Department of
    Education. Probably, this company still could
    exist, but only , if they offer the Associate degrees
    and nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Hire specialists, educated professionals with human
    faces as managers. Fire current, incompetent
    team of professional managerial bullies, who occupied
    the Virginia Beach campus.

    Improve working conditions and company
    current unprofessional corporate culture and
    moral.
    Discrimination practice based on political differences,
    Gender, national origins must be eliminated.

    Company organizational structure has to be
    changed: campus president must have a terminal
    Degree and have at least two provosts. One
    needs to be in charge for academic tasks and
    another one should manage daily operations, staff
    and serve the needs of educators and students.

    To improve the company image, it will need to
    offer the only Associate degrees for 11-12 weeks
    per term/ semester.

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

    Pros

    Working with students who were truly interested in bettering themselves. ECPI also has wonderful equipment for the students to learn hands on.

    Cons

    Telemarketing in disguise! If you do not have a student coming in, you will spend all 8 hours of your day on the phone calling people who could have potentially requested information on ANY college up to 5 years ago! Management does not care about students, instead sees them as dollar signs. Employees have virtually no holidays off except Christmas and Thanksgiving. They would rather have you calling potential students on Christmas Eve than risk losing a dollar.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and students!
