    I worked at Everest University Online part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent group of students, they want to excel and find a high paying job. They do inservice training every semester. Great peer group.

    Cons

    Low pay, mismanagement, top management would be replaced about every six months. Not regionally accredited but tell instructors not to tell students that. We were told to direct all inquiries about accreditation to the dean. None of the instructors liked that policy

    Advice to Management

    Higher better top level people

    Pros

    My coworkers and the instructors were nice.

    Cons

    Everything! They lied constantly to students about accreditation. Didn't withdraw students after they would withdraw to keep financial aid funds coming in. Sales tactics is harassing.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the management or you will continue to have issues.

    management needs to look around and take care of the workers that did job and recognition should not be based off a score

    I worked at Everest University Online full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It started out as the best job I've ever had. My Department Head was a great person who cared about her staff and the students.I enjoyed going to work, and was proud of all my students ,especially when they finally got to wear their cap and gown at graduation.

    Cons

    It became more business and numbers, rather than an institution of learning. It wasn't fun anymore. Teachers were being told to pass students that should not have passed , or who we felt were in the wrong program.

    Advice to Management

    It was a great place to learn and work. Granted, the economy was a huge part of the problem, but there should have been more communication between teaching staff and corporate to find a better way of dealing with the situation.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Great Co-Workers
    It was the best job I ever had
    Tuition
    I used to love going to work every day

    Cons

    Departments closing.
    More Corporation than learning institution
    Classes being "taught out"due to low enrollment
    Morale is low due to overwork and fear of more layoffs.
    The company has lost it's heart, people have become numbers.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to employees. Yes, cutomer service is a big part of the job, but if an employee tells you there is a problem ,perhaps you should listen and work towards a solution.
