No opinion of CEO

I worked at Western Governors University full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work from home position, and that's about it

Cons

Many policies only learned about after a mistake was made. In trying to change jobs within I NEVER heard back from HR.

Advice to Management

Make sure training includes very clear reviews of policies and procedures. Get HR to move a little faster and at least tell employees why they did not qualify for a job.

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, flexible work environment, nice co-workers and incentives to learn. The opportunities that WGU has provided me over the years have allowed me to continue my education and allow me to grow not only as an employee but as a person.

    Cons

    Some of the management seemed unorganized. Although the business goal was clear, communication between middle management and the workers seemed to be missing. This allowed some processes to not be followed correctly which ultimately results in confusion and uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the objectives clear and make sure that everyone understands the overall goal for their team as well as their department. This will help increase employee awareness and confidence in what they are doing

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The company is still fairly young so there are plenty of opportunities to work your way up.

    Cons

    The pay is devastatingly low and no matter what, you will always do more work than what they pay you to do.
