    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It is a casual work environment. The job presents an opportunity to learn about university admissions and financial aid.

    Cons

    This is basically a telemarketing job where you are on the phone 8 hours a day and are required to meet sales goals. The company micromanages employees and there is little room for advancement. Not all of the managers have a college degree so there is a lack of respect from others who are well-educated and paid less. The company recently lost a primary account and experienced a major layoff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees on the front line because they are well-educated, intelligent, and have more to contribute to the success of the organization. Compensate your employees to attract and retain the best.

    I have been working at Greenwood Hall full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some great hires, and a few good schools.

    Cons

    The managing staff at G&H are incompetent in keeping schools as they (way!) over promise and under deliver. If a school is reading this, please look elsewhere for your needs. As of now, there are investors from for-profit entities looking at buying out portion of this organization. The checks bounce, we dont have direct deposit, and some of the upper management are clueless.

    Advice to Management

    I would clean house, starting for the higher up's. You would be surprised who is loyal in your organization . Advice to new schools STAY AWAY. If you do decide to go with these folks, make sure you sign a short term contract with stipulations to save your organization from any issues.
