    I have been working at Western Governors University full-time

    Pros

    The hours are flexible. You get to set your own work schedule, for the most part. Colleagues are usually friendly and very helpful.

    Cons

    WGU does not treat its employees fairly. If you are a favorite, you will likely do well. However, if you are not, you may not find the work experience all that enjoyable. Upper management needs training but does not seem interested in professional and leadership development. They claim to want the distinction of being a great place to work but don't seem interested in actually being a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get some much-needed leadership and ethics training.
