    Pros

    It is rewarding to help students reach their goals and earn degrees that help them improve their lives. There are a lot of awesome, dedicated people working at WGU (for now).

    Cons

    The pay is extremely low. We are losing our talented employees because they are moving on to jobs that pay them what they are worth. The top leadership is not great and seems to be disconnected from issues regarding pay. There is a lot of glossing over concerns raised in employee feedback in the name of holding on to being a great place to work.

    Pros

    WGU offers a very supportive top-down culture and many opportunities for professional growth. They invest in their employees.

    Cons

    Consistent changes in processes and programs for the benefit of employees and students. It is important to embrace change and realize that you will have the tools and support to be successful.

    Pros

    I enjoy my work at WGU. It’s fast-paced, innovative, and you know everyone is working toward a worthwhile goal.

    Cons

    It’s a non-profit. The pay is competitive, but they’re pretty tight lipped about salaries.
