    The hardest part about the job was learning to take feedback in a real time environment and implement that feedback on the fly without losing your step.

    I worked at Everest University Online (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was nice working at EUO while I was there, although I was hired while the investigations were going on and then we were ultimately bought by Zenith. We had hoped it meant good things would happen but it seems the new owners bit off more than they could chew.

    Cons

    I was at lunch when I was sent the email telling me to go to a special meeting, so I wasn't able to go to my desk and retrieve personal documents I had saved on the hard drive of the laptop. It was no big deal, but it would have been nice to have been able to get those personal docs.

    Advice to Management

    Do it already. Move the ops to Minnesota and put everybody left in Tampa out of their misery.
