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

    Pros

    Very flexible with schedules- most enrollment counselors work 1 Saturday a month, but that can be changed if you change your 8-5 PM schedule to a 11-8 PM scheduled. Work from home. Great job culture.

    Cons

    Low pay- get paid $10,000 less even WITH an undergraduate degree than if you were to work for any other company. Difficult quotas, metrics, and only once every year performance reviews make working your best almost impossible. Performance is measured with numbers rather than quality of performance and contact with students and colleagues. Even if you were to do incredibly well, an enrollment counselor "raise" is not more than $1,000.

    Advice to Management

    If you expect us to do our best as employees, pays us what we're worth and train us if we are lacking in areas rather than give us only once a year reviews.
