    I worked at Higher Ed Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The sales team was very knowledgeable and very willing to share their experience in educational sales.
    The product we pitched was awesome.
    I felt I was part of a true educational revolution. Online Degrees completed 100% online from State Unversities with longstanding reputation was very new back then.

    Cons

    The company was taking a hit-or-miss approach when it came to what was done for the day-to-day operations and that reflected on our individual productivity.
    Training was for one brand and I went to the field to serve another brand.

    Advice to Management

    Great vision from leadership. Just keep the good guys regardless of the situational outcome.

    Pros

    The products offered are excellent.
    The branding is highly isible at the local level.
    The value vs. cost is very positive
    Innovation in education. For some this could be a disadvantage. .

    Cons

    Bad timing to launch a new products.
    Unwillingness to percieve the inherent long sales cycle.
    Top management hurried to market throwing a "Hail Mary" sales effort.
    Innovative products that mean well. However, education does not sit well being innovative. Johnny has gone to school in the same way for nearly a millenium

    Advice to Management

    Educational parnerships are good and dandy, but they do not forge themselves on a napkin.
    Local Collegiate Entities see an inminent threat from HEH's activities. Be mindful of it and taylor a PR action plan.
