    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    90% tuition discount (however, I would never attend here. and forget having the time to take classes anyway)
    it's a job and I can pay my bills (albeit still struggling)

    Cons

    This is the worst company I've ever worked for. There is no work life balance. All they expect you to do is work. If you have a manager that you get along with, you're lucky and should feel very fortunate. Hours are always changing, and sometimes they expect you to work up to 60 hours a week to enroll those students to put more money in their shareholders pockets. THEN they take away overtime, but still expect you to put the time in with their "extended hours"

    Advice to Management

    More work, less conference calls. Let your staff get back to going out in the community and recruiting instead of buying fake leads from telemarketing agencies. Stop expecting your employees to give up their family lives to work at your establishment. You want flexibility from us, but give us massive schedule changes 3 days before we are expected to work. You expect overtime when its convenient for you and then take it away from us when you realize you overspend on regional big wigs. Spend the money on hiring better professors and giving people a better quality education. Stop with the numbers game. You should be treating your admissions staff like gold. Without us, you wouldn't have your new "number" to report to shareholders every day. Get out of your offices, come to the campus, and make the calls. Meet with students and dot he whole admissions process to see how difficult it really is. You might be singing another tune once you see that it's more than just a number.
