    I worked at Globe University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly, great helping people make higher education choices

    Cons

    Employees in Management positions were unqualified to be in those roles. Operations Management was run by making the most money for top executives rather then listening to the students, employees and employers on what is needed for a quality education. They kept higher management roles in corporate of Campus Directors in positions too long, and those employees had no idea what they were doing.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the needs of the students, rather then the needs of your salary.

    I worked at Globe University full-time

    Pros

    Some very good people who were truly working in students' best interests. Structured in a way that could make for a student-centered learning (but ultimately didn't).

    Cons

    Management didn't necessarily meet education requirements; neither did faculty.
    Operated as small business, which can be good, but meant that oversight was dependent on a few people, which can be terrible - and often was.
    Had system to "help" employees who were "underperforming." The problem was that this was a completely subjective process that was, ultimately, more demeaning than it was empowering.
    Horrible culture.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for all voices to be head, despite hierarchical structure.
    Strive for better work-life balance and train management to be empathetic, both to students and to staff.

    Pros

    They made efforts to encourage and build teamwork. I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers.

    Cons

    I had an awful boss. She was scattered to the point of being unproductive; also passive aggressive and arrogant. Starting pay was super low also, especially considering the amount of work you have to do.
