    Overworked, Underpaid

    Sep 20, 2021 - Marketing Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great people, but many are leaving due to poor work conditions Company with a long history, which is sometimes positive

    Cons

    Classic tale of overworked and underpaid. Key talent with decades of experience have been leaving the company as they were given more responsibility without corresponding pay increases. This was particularly true throughout COVID and a recent merger. I know of people paid 25% less than the salary.com market average listed for their roles.

    Horrible - Stay away as an employee and student

    Dec 2, 2020 - Admissions Advisor 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A tired, broken company that can't fix itself. Hire great people, only to downsize everyone within a few months. The only survivors are long term kiss ups. Operations are completely broken. There is no investment in technology or training and development

    Cons

    They don't care about their employees or students. Benefits suck - no 401k match and healthcare is very expensive. No advancement unless you're part of the C-Suite.
