    Yay for working from home Boo on the pay

    Pros

    Work from home, you can schedule your own schedule, helpful teammates, a positive place to be.

    Cons

    The pay is so low and shameful. I have 2 Master's Degrees and my pay is 1/3 what is was when I taught Kindergarten. It's sad that many many excellent evaluators have to leave because they can't afford to work at WGU.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, desirable culture, flexible scheduling, and working from a home office is a huge plus!

    Cons

    You must be a very self-motivated individual to be effective but if this is understood, it is not really a con.

    It Depends on Which Department You Work For

    Pros

    There is a certain level of autonomy that I enjoy. I am fully remote. I get to interact with several departments across the university which is fun.

    Cons

    The pay is not up to snuff with the other higher education institutions. This could very well only apply to certain positions, but the requirements for certain roles are also ridiculous and the opposite of equitable. Just compare some similar positions with say, Harvard. One would think that an institution like Harvard would have one of the more stringent "check every box" hiring requirements, but they don't because they realize not everyone who is intelligent and very capable at their job doesn't have a formal degree. It's called "equal work experience" or "preferred" instead of "required." A lot of talent being left out of this work place.
