I worked at Ellucian full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Has a start up feel and they are still figuring it out. This is not a con. Perhaps the people leaving the negative comments should look at their own performance rather than finding ways to point the finger at others for their 'horrible' experience.

Cons

Co-workers that are still hung up on the 'good old days' and have no idea what it is like to be in a modern day workforce.

Advice to Management

Remember that most people that complain on sites like this are the low hanging fruit or were let go for performance reasons but blame 'the man' on keeping them down.

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

    Pros

    Nice employees (when they're not undergoing layoffs)

    Nice IT staff who help with technical problems

    Cons

    Lots of outsourcing meant having to cope with setting up meetings in different timezones; also hard to reach out to remote employees when you have questions

    Poor salary in light of competitors (I now work for Jenzabar and am getting much more there)

    "Hunger Games" mentality when it comes to getting things done - lack of collaboration and virtually no mentorship/aid for lower level employees

    Advice to Management

    Sort your remote teams out better!

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

    Pros

    There are lots of work from home oportunities which balance out the rather aggressive travel. Departments such at HR, IT, Legal, ETC. are very structured and stable.

    Cons

    Focus and direction seem to have been falling into a tailspin over the past 18 months. I understand that a merging company has growing pains - but it's been well over a year now - get your act together. It is very clear that management doesn't value employees much. Benefits have been drasticaly eroded. This company currently has no idea who it is, what is values are, or what its focus is.

    Advice to Management

    Stop constantly contradicting yourself - you have such little credability as it is. Try being atleast remotely honest with your employees. Stupid little acts of kindness towards your employees can go a long way. Disclosure is almost non-existant.
