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

    Pros

    Flexible hours and opportunities to work from home
    Employee recognition
    Generally good morale/ employee interactions
    Pretty good benefits - insurance and retirement plans

    Cons

    Seems like there are constantly changes being made, but without standard, centralized processes, which creates disjointedness between departments and inefficient work in some cases.
    The pay is not great but okay.

    Advice to Management

    Let's try to make cross-departmental processes more standard and efficient.

    I have been working at Western Governors University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have a flexible schedule with an extremely supportive team. The program manager always has helpful advice. Knowing that I am helping students overcome obstacles to receive their degrees and better their quality of life. Nice not to have to spend money on gas commute so maybe that helps with the low pay issue below.

    Cons

    Pay is not as good as it could be. It is not equivalent to professors' at brick and mortar and we work 12 months with no winter or spring break as opposed to other universities where they work 9 months with holiday breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff.
